Episode One of Season Two of the popular SBS program, Gourmet Farmer with Matthew Evans, aired on Thursday, 25 August at 7.30pm. I have already booked regular seats on the living room sofa for the next little while and am looking forward to learning more about Matthew's life on Puggle Farm in Tasmania, with his partner, Sadie, and little son, Hedley.
I've always been fond of Matthew. The former SMH food critic also happens to be a great chef (ex-Canberra), a gentleman and just a down-to-earth, nice kind of guy. Having moved to Tassie, which many food enthusiasts revere as the land of milk and honey, Matthew turned his hand at farmer and experiencing all that goes with it. Gourmet Farmer follows his adventures from paddock to plate.
Matthew was born in a mining town in southern Wales and moved to Canberra at the age of four. From about that time on, he says "he fell in love with food at [his] mother’s apron strings". Matthew is the author of eight books on food, including the authoritative Real Food Companion and his autobiography Never Order Chicken on a Monday. He writes regularly for Delicious, Feast and Grazia magazines, and shares a market stall, Rare Food, with his good mate Ross O’Meara, specialising in old and rare breed pork products, amongst other goodies.
