Read Maeve's and Guy's behind-the-scene stories from Italian Food Safari.

Maeve O’Meara is living her dream – a life punctuated with fabulous food and many friends to share it with, much of it in exotic locations and cosy home kitchens. Maeve is an award-winning food and cooking author, journalist, broadcaster, television producer and presenter who has spent many years travelling the world discovering food. Italian Food Safari continues the dream – after living in an Italian area of Sydney for some years and spending time in Italy, she reveled in the chance to feature friends of many years and to celebrate one of the world’s great cuisines. 

She is joined by co-host, Guy Grossi, an acclaimed Melbourne chef, restaurateur and food personality who revels in his Italian heritage and its many glorious culinary delights. Owner and chef of Grossi Florentino and Mirka at Tolarno Hotel in Melbourne and Grossi Trattoria Bangkok, Guy has been working in the kitchen all his life, joining his father Pietro in the family restaurant and now working alongside his sister Elizabeth, wife Melissa, son Carlo and daughter Loredana.
