Once each month a train departs the coastal mega city of Lima, Peru, bound for the highlands. Along the way the railroad passes through numerous tunnels and over trestles, crowning out at nearly 16,000 feet elevation. Host Dave Yetman hops on the train to arrive at its destination, the indigenous city of Huancayo, high on the Altiplano of the Andes and as different from Lima as any two cities in the world.

More than 5000 years ago, a potter in Central Asia made a tall, urn-shaped, incredibly efficient clay barbecue pit—the origin of the Indian tandoor. Today, tandoori, Indian barbecue, is enjoyed from New Delhi to New Caledonia to New York. This show features tandoori salmon (washed with garlic water and marinated in spices, yogurt, and chickpea flour). Next up, two traditional Indian charcoal-grilled breads made from the same dough: naan and flaky, puff pastry-like lachha paratha, followed by fragrant Persian-inspired saffron chicken tikka kebabs. Best of all, each recipe can be cooked on a conventional grill, too.

Martha Stewart, a magazine editor, star of her own television show and author of the popluar "Weddings" book joins Julia to bake one grand and glorious three-tiered wedding cake. Martha prepares the batter and bakes each layer in graduated diamond-shaped cake forms. While the cake bakes, and then chills, Martha creates a variety of delicately realistic and delicious marzipan fruits, right down to the little stems and leaves. She also makes and chills enough vanilla rum buttercream to ice the entire cake.
