Love food and travel? Do it like celebrity chef Manu Feildel does as he travels the route of Jules Vern’s Around the World in 80 Days novel while cooking and tasting his way through 80 dishes on a budget of just AUD$20,000, in 30 days. Journeying through London, Dubai, India, Hong Kong, Japan and the United States, Manu can cook in exchange for accommodation (as seen in the Dubai episode), wash dishes, or even busk, but he cannot take money or free travel. Can he make it?
Watch the show “Around the World in 80 Dishes” on the Nat Geo People channel, available on i-Cable and now TV. Premieres July 23.
