About the Show

About the Show

Join much-loved TV personality Lyndey Milan as she unearths the characters, places, pastures and heroes that form the backbone of a thriving Australian culinary culture and delivers a real Taste of Australia. Australia’s diverse climate and vast landscapes provide perfect conditions for bountiful and assorted harvests. This sets the scene for Lyndey’s mission: to seek out and experience the very best food and wine this country has to offer. Lyndey is in all her glory: funny, quirky, and with a devilish sense of adventure.

On her travels, Lyndey encounters wildlife synonymous with the country from koalas and kangaroos to dolphins dipping in and out of crystal clear blue waves. But it’s not just the animals that come out to play as Lyndey is joined by a plethora of top chefs.

From rock fishing with the charismatic Rick Stein or cooking with Pete Evans on his home turf, to talking all things South Australian with Maggie Beer, Lyndey shares her Taste of Australia with some of the country’s finest foodies.  One episode, celebrating Lyndey’s home town of Sydney, sees the vivacious cook enjoy a true Aussie barbecue with celebrity chef Neil Perry set against a majestic backdrop of Sydney harbour.

The home cook hero enjoys a variety of activities as she meets farmers and producers across the country. Lyndey tries her hand at  a host of activities including milking a goat, camel riding, gold panning, boot scootin’ at a country music festival and even salmon milking at a caviar farm in Victoria’s Yarra Valley.

Whether fishing, foraging for mushrooms or snail farming, Lyndey’s passion for Australian food and produce is contagious. This 13 part series explores the best the sunburned country has to offer from traditional, Aboriginal bush tucker to refined contemporary classics as seen through the eyes of an Aussie food legend.
