Neil Perry Fresh & Fast follows Neil’s philosophy “Keep it fresh, keep it simple”. And because it’s Neil, it will always be served up with a distinct creative edge. Even in his own kitchen, he does everything with a twist. Whether it’s a stunning seasonal ingredient, or a special technique, Neil is forever wooing our tastebuds. And in this series, he keeps it simple and very fast.
From easy pasta-making to a seafood barbeque on the beach, Neil proves that sensational food need not be hard. He reveals the secrets and shortcuts that turn great food into gourmet food, when cooking for family and friends.
Neil also chats and swaps recipes with friends and colleagues. He joins fellow chef Armando Percuoco at his olive farm for mozzarella and capsicum cooked al fresco, the Italian way; and clashes woks with David “Thai food” Thompson to pound out a range of favourite Thai dishes with little more than a mortar and pestle.
Other episodes will feature Neil in his new test kitchen at Rockpool as he prepares, in real-time, dishes with a Middle Eastern, Spanish or Italian flavour or concentrates on single ingredients like eggs with everything from his classic omelette to a delicious frittata.
From weeknight dinners to casual weekend barbeques, these simple recipes will give viewers the confidence to use exotic seasonal ingredients or give a new twist to familiar ones.
Relaxed, informative and with not a chef’s outfit in sight, Neil Perry Fresh & Fast is all about making sensational meals in minutes. It’s the kind of food Neil cooks at home – and now you can too.
