Destination Flavour takes to the road with a clear aim and a firm promise: to meet the people behind Australia’s finest food. From top-line chefs and providores to primary producers, we’ve mustered the best of the best to find out how they do it, why they do it, and what inspires them.
It’s the “paddock to plate” philosophy come to life as hosts Adam Liaw, Renee Lim and Lily Serna criss-cross the country to track down and taste-test the best there is. Each region has something unique to offer, and so do our home-grown food heroes.
There’s the grass-roots producers, whose passion for quality produce is infectious. They grow rare and delicious heirloom potatoes, farm oysters in the crystal-clear bays of Tasmania, or yabbies in Western Australia. There’s even a one-time apple grower who now exports truffles to France.
We also get inside the heads and kitchens of some of Australia’s top chefs, and they’re not all in the big cities. We find a surprising number of world-class chefs who followed the sun or their hearts to places like Cairns, Daylesford and Manjimup.
And then there’s the “tree-changers”: a London veterinarian turned Mudgee pig farmer, the academic who started a quail farm, and an orthodontist from Brisbane whose love of growing organic olives changed his life.
Each episode features loads of sensational recipes. This exciting new 10-part series includes over 60 recipes that reflect the incredible diversity of not just cooking styles, but cultures throughout the country.
From goat farms to gourmet restaurants, Destination Flavour combines the three key ingredients for great viewing: gorgeous scenery, wonderful characters and sumptuous food.
