New surfers on menu

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food -

WHILE the for­mula is still the same, the duo is not and former Masterchef con­tes­tants Dan Churchill and Hay­den Quinn have made the new se­ries of Surf­ing the Menu: Next Gen­er­a­tion their very own.

In Perth for a whirl­wind pro­mo­tional visit, the good mates are surf­ing a wave of suc­cess with their 13-part re­boot on the ABC start­ing Sun­day.

Churchill said the duo had en­joyed a fun day pro­mot­ing the se­ries in WA, tak­ing part in sev­eral book­store ap­pear­ances and cook­ing demon­stra­tions.

Tak­ing off where Cur­tis Stone and Ben O’Donoghue left off, the new se­ries sees Churchill and Quinn head off around Aus­tralia on a food, farm, travel and surf ad­ven­ture in GiGi, their 50-yearold Volk­swa­gen Bug.

Sup­ported by Tourism WA and ScreenWest and pro­duced lo­cally by Mago Films WA, film­ing took place across Queens­land, the North­ern Ter­ri­tory and WA.

With a big fo­cus on WA, it in­cludes episodes in Broome, Ku­nunurra and Carnar­von and fea­tures vis­its to out­back cat­tle sta­tions, mud crab­bing and swim­ming with manta rays.

They also meet pas­sion­ate pro­duc­ers and cre­ate sim­ple, healthy and de­li­cious recipes.

Pro­ducer Mar­ian Bartsch said she hoped to re­peat the suc­cess of the orig­i­nal se­ries, which made Stone and O’Donoghue house­hold names.

A book of the same name is also avail­able in book­shops across Aus­tralia.

Surf­ing the Menu: Next Gen­er­a­tion premieres on ABC1 on Sun­day at 6pm.
