How the world’s cuisines create magic with vegetables.
Showcasing the great vegetarian dishes of the world, Food Safari Earth is a vibrant, comprehensive 13-part series. Continuing a whole new dimension of food television, this series is a glorious exploration of the bounty of the earth focusing on the huge variety of fresh vegetables, exotic fruits, herbs, grains, pulses and flowers.
Food Safari Earth explores the endless possibilities of vegetables - and how the freshest seasonal produce can offer the most satisfying journey through flavours, colours and textures. From the early history of human settlement, vegetables, fruits and grains have been the major part of our diet. Now there’s a definite trend back to those meat-free days and Food Safari Earth captures the zeitgeist – vegetables are the new black. Home cooks have long known the value of vegetables and more and more chefs now showcase them as the main event on menus.
Filmed across the four seasons and with access to abundant farms and gardens around Australia, Food Safari Earth features a vast array of vegetables at their absolute best, some with the dew fresh from picking. The series explores classic vegetarian dishes and the ancient ingredients, recipes and techniques passed down through the generations as well as new combinations and techniques, all adding up to seriously delicious food. Combining food as art and practical, achievable recipes, Food Safari Earth is a visual delight featuring the top chefs and best cooks of multicultural Australia.
