Buckle Up for an adventure to remember Down Under (and cook yourself a mean Linguine while at it)!
I’m quite sure you remember this show: a pair of Auzzie blokes roughing it out while discovering amazing ingredients and cooking up a storm wherever they go. In its latest instalment, the show has been rebranded to read: Surfing the Menu: Next Generation.
This season will feature spanking new co-hosts Dan Churchill and Hayden Quinn. If their names seem familiar, its because they took the trophy home in Master Chef Australia; 2011 and 2013. Surfing the Menu: Next Generation sees the boys through trials and tribulations in their motherland Australia. They learn to sail the seas, surf dunes of the desert in a four-wheel-drive, snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef and swim with Manta Rays. Where does the food come in, you ask? In the shared experiences they create while on this wild, show stopping journey.
Dan and Hayden meet and interact with indigenous communities and producers of the freshest ingredients known to cooks around the world, including tomatoes, cheeses, mushrooms, game, seafood and even salt! Then comes the magic of the show: They turn these mouth-watering ingredients into tantalising dishes that are sure to blow your minds. Here’s a recipe for you to experiment with at home in preparation for this awesome show. Can you wait? I know I can’t!
Surfing the Menu: Next Generation will premiere on TLC on Monday, 18 July 2016 at 9pm. TLC is available on Singtel mioTV Channel 254 and Starhub Channel 427.
