'I'm really thrilled about finding a home at SBS Food, amongst such stellar company. It's going to be great fun to share my friends and family - my original cooking heroes - and a lot of the creative chaos involved in renovating, making art, raising two furry sons and running a market stall from the burbs of Adelaide.' – Poh Ling Yeow
It's not that often that ordinary folks get the chance to sit across the dinner table with a politician, but thanks to veteran political journalist, Annabel Crabb, we can. The fourth series of her popular Kitchen Cabinet returns to our screens this month and, once again, there's an interesting, if not delightful, agenda with a delicious menu to match.
Following on from the first season, Yotam Ottolenghi returns in an all new series of Mediterranean Feasts, exploring the unique foods, flavours and culinary traditions of the Mediterranean Islands. Each episode features a different 'dream-holiday' destination from Corsica to Mallorca and from Sardina to Crete. All of the destinations showcase amazing, envy-inducing island scenery with turquoise waters, blue skies, mountain farms, seaside towns, local markets, olive groves and winding roads. Sounds wonderful, no?

‘I was sitting in a café in Hanoi watching the world go by,’ chef Luke Nguyen explains as he pours a cup of caramel-coloured Vietnamese coffee. ‘There were people exercising: doing Tai Chai, playing badminton and kicking around a bamboo shuttlecock. And next to me on these little stools were a pair of old men with long, silver beards. They were wearing scarves and berets--and, to my surprise, were speaking fluent French. I thought “wow, this is a great experience” and I wanted to speak to them and find out what life was like in the days of the late 1800s to 1954 during the French occupation.'
On his latest overseas adventure, Luke Nguyen's France, which begins on Thursday, 24 April at 7:30pm on SBS ONE, celebrated chef Luke Nguyen ventures out of Asia and into France — the culinary wonderland that shaped both his ancestral home, Vietnam, and the lives of so many in his family.
