This episode is part 2 of a 2 part series on tomato and egg, a classic homestyle dish that has come to represent so much for children of Chinese immigrants. Modern day nomad, Jeremy Leung, attempts to make his mother’s tomato and egg for the very first time in his life. In doing so, he discovers how her iconic dish has been changed and adapted over the years to create the perfect marriage between East and West. In this episode, we discuss his experience of moving from Hong Kong to Melbourne as a child and explore the triumphs and challenges that come with trying to fit in and remain connected to your cultural heritage after moving to a new country.
