Thursday, 7.30pm, SBS One In tonight’s debut of her fourth series, Maeve O’Meara visits Darwin. She says there are a thousand spices on the warm breeze up there, including the sharp scents of lemongrass, ginger and chilli — and that’s just from the Asian end of the spectrum. In the Top End there is a thriving indigenous food culture as well as the cuisine of an enormous Greek community. Who knew the place was so well served with fabulous food? Tonight you could learn how to cook wild barramundi on the beach, take in a prized indigenous recipe and find out how a Greek barbecue is done Darwin-style. One reason for the flourishing of all these different cuisines is that almost anything grows in Darwin. Add that to abundant seafood and you’ve got a Top End tourist attraction that possibly should be better known. Who knew that octopus had to be beaten on rocks then vigorously massaged and partially dehydrated before being barbecued? Aren’t there fluids you can steep it in to less athletically release the starch?
