Granny Knows Best (奶奶最懂得) / factual TV / 8 x ½ hour

Travel chef Jamie Bilbow heads on an adventure through China's heartland in search of the masters of home cooking. This is a lesson in joy, patience, familial love and what it means to take the bitter before the sweet, taught by the one who knows best: Granny.

For this series, we travelled and filmed for two months across thousands of kilometres in eight different provinces of China: Yunnan, Sichuan, Guizhou, Guangxi, Hainan, Anhui, Zhejiang and Fujian. An extremely ambitious project for China's leading video subscription service, Tencent Video. We not only covered the preparation of 32 meals, but the unique life stories of 16 characters as well as the culture, history and nature that surrounds them.
