Rudy Maxa's World Previous Broadcasts

Bangkok (Episode #406H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Feb 21, 2018 -- 9:30 AM

Bangkok is a city of the senses - a bejeweled, dazzling, fantastical mix of magic and faith, hard work and love of life, grace and wild abandon. It's a city where chaos and serenity happily co-exist. Host Rudy Maxa and Washington, D.C. restauranteur and chef Daisuke Utagawa roll up their sleeves and prepare to eat their way across this city. Bangkok is one enormous dining room. Nobody eats at home; everything in this tropical town happens on the street. These fun loving, food crazy, spiritually rich, profoundly graceful people make Bangkok one of the most welcoming cities in the world.

Hong Kong, Part 2 (Episode #405H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Feb 14, 2018 -- 9:30 AM

The iconic photo of Hong Kong is a wall of skyscrapers against Victoria Peak with the city's harbor as a foreground. But on the other side of the island there are beaches and miles of forest hiking trails. Travel journalist Rudy Maxa and Washington, D.C. restaurateur Daisuke Utagawa explore both sides of the island, from the frenetic night life of the "mid-level's" bars and restaurants behind those skyscrapers to the calm waters of Repulse Bay on the quiet side of Hong Kong. Dramatic photography by renowned shooters Karel Bauer and Joe Pontecorvo bring Hong Kong into viewers' homes as never before.

Hong Kong, Part 1 (Episode #404H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Feb 7, 2018 -- 9:30 AM

A bastion of capitalism under the umbrella of China, a city with a stunning array of architecturally interesting skyscrapers, and a city where shopping and dining are varsity sports, Hong Kong certainly ranks as one of the world's great cities. Host Rudy Maxa and Washington, D.C. restaurateur and chef Daisuke Utagawa enthusiastically eat their way through Hong Kong, from cheap but authentic, hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurants to Michelin-starred palaces. Along the way they illustrate the excitement, stunning topography, and energy that defines Hong Kong.
