Peter Rus­sell Clarke and Myf Warhurst at a ta­ble heav­ing with Aussie sta­ples. YF Warhurst’s nos­tal­gic jour­ney through the re­cent Aus­tralian past con­tin­ues with a look at food in Nice: And Tasty.

Grow­ing up in a small coun­try town, Warhurst thought that din­ner at the local Chi­nese restau­rant was the most ex­otic culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence pos­si­ble.

With hind­sight she re­alises a lot of our ear­lier food ex­pe­ri­ences weren’t ex­actly au­then­tic – but they were nice.

In Nice: and Tasty, Warhurst ex­plores Aus­tralia’s re­cent food past. Are we ashamed of our na­tional foods and if so why? Is there more to the food in the bain-marie of our local take­away than we think?

Warhurst chats to such culi­nary icons as Peter Rus­sell-Clarke and Matt Pre­ston.

She learns how to cook a ‘‘dimmy’’ and tries to find the ‘‘Chiko Roll chick’’ who ap­peared in the posters she re­mem­bers from her child­hood.

Her ros­ter of guests in­cludes chefs El­iz­a­beth Chong, Shan­non Bennet and ad­ver­tis­ing CEO and Gruen Planet reg­u­lar Rus­sel Howcroft.

Wed­nes­day, 8pm, ABC1.
