He commences his island adventure in the fascinating surrounds of the northern Philippine island of Luzon. First stop is the coastal town of Pagudpud, where he joins a local fisherman as he brings in his morning catch in a small, motorised outrigger. Peter takes in the local fishing technique of using nets by hand before returning to the beach to cook his version of a classic Filipino dish, spanner crab kinilaw.
Heading south, Peter stops at a far different coastal town by the name of Vigan. This town was built under Spanish rule and governed from Mexico for 300 years and as a result, what remains culturally and architecturally is a fusion of three different influences.
