Singing the praises of vegies
Food Safari Earth, SBS, Thursday at 8pm
AUSTRALIA’S empress of food, Maeve O’Meara, returns with a new season of Food Safari exploring how multicultural Australia cooks with the delicious variety of fresh vegetables, exotic fruits, herbs, grains, pulses and flowers cultivated by Mother Nature.
Each of the 13 episodes explores a different range of ingredients through the eyes of prominent members of the Australian food scene, from authentic home cooks who have migrated from Ethiopia, Syria, Turkey, Indonesia and Sri Lanka to chefs like Danielle Alcarez, Martin Benn, Peter Gilmore, Guy Grossi and Tetsuya Wakuda.
Maeve uncovers ancient methods and techniques passed down through the generations alongside high-end scientific dishes and classic vegetable-driven meals from around the world.
