Food Paradise Press Release

Leading Independent Chinese Television Network Launches “Food Paradise,”


A Culinary Guide to the Big Wide World



New York, NY: Some say ‘I’ll believe it when I see it,” the founders of “Food Paradise” assert “You’ll understand it when you taste it.” A new 30-minute show broadcast on New Tang Dynasty Television (NTDTV), the leading New York City based Independent Chinese media company, “Food Paradise” aims to enlighten viewers on the amazing cultures across the globe by teaching them about the food native to the land. Delivered in Chinese with English subtitles and dubbing, “Food Paradise” is an incredible resource for learning Chinese history and for Chinese viewers to expand their palettes with an abundance of ethnic cuisines.


NTDTV host Yu Xin, a beloved host and expert on Chinese cuisine, will join forces with NTDTV’s Classical Chinese Culinary Competition award winner and current judge Chef Mike Chen to deliver exciting cooking demonstrations. While preparing traditional dishes they give the narrative of their ancestors, the various regions of China they have explored and the incredible and dynamic history of China and its dynasties. Through Yu and Mike, viewers get a sneak peak into traditional Chinese culture, which has long been wrapped in a shroud of mystery and mystique.


“I own a Chinese restaurant where I do mostly American-style Chinese food. I have
slowly forgotten the taste of home. This program has awakened my
memory. I have to thank Food Paradise for bringing back the traditional Chinese
food and culture. As a Chinese person I’m proud of you!”
– anonymous fan
