In densely populated Chinese cities, modern life contrasts with timeless traditions. A high value is placed on hard work, family ties, ancient philosophies, good luck, and very fresh food.

Chinese market vendors handle food with care. Seafood and chickens are alive. Shoppers seek perfect produce. Freshness is so important that some Chinese housewives shop twice daily for meals that are appreciated not only for fine flavors but also for their health-promoting properties.

Join cookbook author and world traveler Paulette Mitchell in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Zhujiajiao, an ancient water town. See food markets that hum with activity both day and night. The Chinese come not only to shop but also to socialize and to savor noodles, dumplings, and many local specialties. The aromas and flavors are amazing.

Video includes segments with locals speaking Cantonese and optional English subtitles.
