Regular followers of this blog and my Twitter feed will be familiar with my passion for the farmers and food producers of Australia; and my tweets about them being the 'Salt of the Earth'. This may explain why I have been so looking forward to Destination Flavour, a new ten-part series coming to SBS One.
Featuring MasterChef winner, Adam Liaw, Renee Lim from Food Investigators, and Lily Serna of Letters and Numbers, Destination Flavour profiles Australia’s renowned chefs, leading providores and food producers, top city restaurants and much loved suburban eateries. It also showcases Australia’s culinary regions that provide the best ‘paddock to plate’ food.
Having watched the first episode, I feel this program is fresh in every sense of the word. From the hosts (particularly Adam Liaw, who I think is a very natural presenter) to the vibrant scenery, and delicious dishes and food regions shown. Incidentally, Liaw is currently the Featured Foodie on the SBS Food web site and re his food philosophy says that 'the way we cook and eat is the ultimate connection between human beings and the world'.
Destination Flavour commences on SBS One on Thursday, 16 August at 8.00pm.
