Food

At SBS we aim to inspire Australian and international audiences to explore and celebrate our diverse world through the universal language of food. SBS Food TV remains distinctive through the strategic commissioning and acquiring of high quality content.

Our world-class commissions occupy a unique position in the Australian food media landscape and offer a genuine alternative to food programming available elsewhere, while using food as a conduit to cultural insight and understanding.

Our content includes popular high quality, high production value series – such as internal productions, AACTA Award winning Destination Flavour series with Adam Liaw, Poh & Co. featuring Poh Ling Yeow. External productions such as The Chefs’ Line, Luke Nguyen’s Asian Street Food, Shane Delia’s Recipe for Life, Food Safari Earth and Gourmet Farmer Series 4 complete the mix. Each of these programs celebrate food as well as the people and culture behind it.

We pride ourselves on attracting the best chefs and food presenters to host our food programs, including Adam Liaw, Poh Ling Yeow, Luke Nguyen, Peter Kuruvita, Shane Delia, Matthew Evans, and Maeve O'Meara. As well as new talent, Executive Chef Dan Hong, food writer Melissa Leong and Chef Mark Olive.

While each has their own personal style, they all share an insatiable curiosity and passion for the world of food and a flair for immersing audiences in a particular culture and cuisine.
