Ep. 6: Dedication, with Hetty McKinnon (Season Finale)

In this season finale, we follow host Hetty McKinnon as she ventures to Chinatown to pick up ingredients to cook an iconic dish from her childhood—e-fu noodles—for the Lunar New Year. While cooking the dish, Hetty reminisces on the memories of growing up in her mother’s kitchen and discovers that she really is her mother’s daughter.
