Factual Food TV Series | 10 x 30min
Celebrated cook and restaurateur, Stefano de Pieri takes us on a unique and insightful field trip of his river community to explore Australia’s biggest food bowl, the Murray-Darling Basin.
Australia’s Food Bowl sets itself apart from other food and lifestyle series as it delves deeper into the production processes through informative and entertaining interviews, flavoured with Stefano’s beautifully simple and mouth-watering Italian cooking, all prepared using locally-sourced produce.
This is a fact-finding food tour. It gives the audience an understanding of what is happening in the Murray-Darling region, from a local’s perspective. We join Stefano as he uncovers the events unfolding in this region interwoven with the challenges local producers face and explores sustainability and innovations in horticulture for a healthy future.
From celebrating the annual grape harvest with a feast for 200 people under the vines, to the intricate relationship between bees and almonds, as well as the topical and controversial Darling River water crisis many farmers face every day. These are just some of the themes Stefano delves into throughout the series. We go straight to the source and discover the flavours, colours, characters and diversity of Australia’s Food Bowl.
