Food Safari Earth

The New Green
Season 1 Episode 1 SBS October 12, 2017

Australia’s empress of food television, Maeve O’Meara returns with Food Safari Earth, exploring how multicultural Australia cooks with the delicious variety of fresh vegetables, exotic fruits, herbs, grains, pulses and flowers cultivated by Mother Nature. Maeve explores a different range of ingredients through the eyes of prominent members of the Australian food scene, from authentic home cooks who have migrated from Ethiopia, Syria, Turkey, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and more; to hatted-restaurant Head Chefs like Danielle Alvarez, Martin Benn, Guy Grossi, Tetsuya Wakuda, and Frederico Zanellato.

Sydney chef Peter Gilmore (Quay, Bennelong) shows Maeve his extensive vegetable and herb garden, where he creates an inspired artichoke and carrot salad. With Thai chef and restaurant owner Amy Chanta (Chat Thai) and daughter Palisa Anderson (Boon Café, Jarern Chai), Maeve picks a range of eggplant and fresh herbs to create an aromatic vegetable curry. Melbourne’s modern Middle Eastern chef, Joseph Abboud (Rumi, Moor’s Head) reimagines the smoky delight of eggplant in a dish he calls ‘the whole baba’ – like the famous baba ghanouj before it’s blended. Maeve gets a rare and privileged insight into the kitchen of one of Australia’s most acclaimed chefs, Martin Benn (Sepia), where science and food art reach their zenith.
