Tourism Australia has partnered with The Precinct Studios to create Restaurant Australia, an original three part television series showcasing modern Australian cuisine to the world.
The series follows renowned chefs, Neil Perry, Ben Shewry and Peter Gilmore as they come together to create a uniquely Australian menu set to impress some of the world’s toughest critics including A.A. Gill, Heston Blumenthal and Alice Waters.
Lisa Ronson, chief marketing dfficer, Tourism Australia, said: “The Precinct Studios has done an excellent job bringing to life Restaurant Australia through the new TV series.”
“This series is as much about people as it is about food. When you bring together some of the most passionate and talented chefs, farmers, winemakers and artisans from across the country, you end up with a story that extends far beyond the plate,” said Michelle Galluzzo, creative director, The Precinct Studios.
The series is an extension of Tourism Australia’s Invite the World to Dinner event held at the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania.
“When people see these three episodes they’ll see just what an incredible undertaking the Invite the World to Dinner event in Tasmania really was, and get a much better appreciation of the people, the produce and places which make Australia such an exciting food and wine destination for international travellers,” said Ronson.
Restaurant Australia will start airing from this Sunday on 7TWO from 6:30pm. The show will also be aired overseas with international distribution deals currently being finalised.
