Palisa Anderson's Water Heart Food

Starts Sunday 29 November at 7pm on SBS Food (Ch.33) and SBS On Demand.

Palisa Anderson likes to consider what impact her food businesses have on others.

Travel with the respected cook, farmer, writer, entrepreneur, Palisa Anderson as she explores her early food memories of Thailand with a handful of Australia’s most respected and emerging chefs to discuss and celebrate that which connects them across cultures and borders.

From her farm in Byron Bay and its neighbouring salty enclaves to the big smoke of Sydney and some of the city’s best chefs, restaurants and out of town destinations, Palisa shares a very intimate exchange with some of her favourite food Industry icons and rising stars, exploring where their passion comes from and sharing food stories to discover we have more in common than we think.

Eating at home really is where Adam Liaw's heart is.
