Sea­son two MasterChef win­ner Adam Liaw has a Scan­di­na­vian treat for food­ies in his seven-part se­ries Desti­na­tion Flavour on SBS

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TV -

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.
