ADAM AND EAT
Season two MasterChef winner Adam Liaw has a Scandinavian treat for foodies in his seven-part series Destination Flavour on SBS
Foodies will find this month a TV feast with two flavoursome food program premieres on SBS. Next week, MasterChef winner Adam Liaw will host an exploration of Scandinavia in Destination Flavour in a seven-part series.
Liaw, who won the second series of MasterChef in 2010, has travelled through Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Europe and will bring the edgy Nordic cuisine to couchside connoisseurs.
Known for his warm smile and topknot hairdo, Liaw will explore Scandinavia’s Viking history, travelling through Denmark, Norway and Sweden to prove there is more to Scandi food than herring and meatballs.
Liaw describes the region as a “wintry wonderland of kings and queens” and something “out of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale”.
Liaw will take to the kitchen with top Scandinavian talent, including meatball artiste Mathias Pilblad and
the first Swedish female chef awarded a Michelin star, Titti Qvarnstrom.
Destination Flavour will be followed by a four-part series trailing Heston Blumenthal as he packs up the cutlery and crockery and heads to Melbourne’s Crown Towers.
The series follows the relocation of The Fat Duck to Australia while his famous English eatery closes its doors for refurbishment.
“Moving The Fat Duck to Australia was unprecedented and certainly one of the longest and most exciting projects in the restaurant’s history,” Blumenthal says.
Inside Heston’s World will give foodies a peak behind the scenes of one of the world’s most unique restaurants.
Described as the Willy Wonker of food, Blumenthal’s series will give those who missed out on eating at the $500 per head Michelin star-restaurant a TV taste of the 15-course menu.
Destination Flavour will air on SBS at 7.30pm on March 31 and will be followed by the premiere of Inside Heston’s World
Former MasterChef champion Adam Liaw will host Destination Flavour on SBS.
