Chef and restaurateur Tommy Tang returns to public television with his new travel/culture series, EASY THAI COOKING WITH TOMMY TANG. In each episode, Tommy uncovers Thai history and cuisine, the health secrets of exotic spices, and the country's cultural treasures and contemporary trends. Tommy journeys deep into the heart of Siam to meet the mysterious people of Surin, visit the infamous "Death Railway" over the River Kwai, shop at the floating markets, sample street food, witness the elephant round-up ceremony, cruise along the Tar Jeen River and learn about Thai silk industry. He also pays a visit to SukhoThai (the first Ancient Capital of Siam), stops at a jade factory to see workers mine and carve the gemstone, lives like a local in Bangkok and attends a Chinese New Year celebration. Along the way, he re-discovers the simplicity and joy of cooking Thai food, while expert videography captures Thailand's dramatic backdrops.
