A new TV series featuring celebrity cook, Anna Gare, and a team of real-life cabbies, hits the screens this week.
The show, Anna Gare’s Cab Fare, follows the TV cook as she gathers stories and recipes from 13cabs’ diverse network of cab drivers – culminating in the creation of delicious dishes inspired by Australian drivers with diverse backgrounds from around the globe.
Running on the Nine Network every Saturday and repeated every Sunday on 9Life, the ten-part series debuted with Anna teaming-up with Dhruv, a young 13cabs driver originally from Northern India, who has been a cab driver in Melbourne for the past 11 years.
Anna Gare said: “Working with the 13cabs drivers has been a fantastic experience. The show uncovers traditional dishes from the 13cabs driver’s homeland, while importantly delving into their personal experiences in transitioning their lives to Australia from countries all over the world like Pakistan, Afghanistan, France, Cambodia, Somalia, Lebanon and the Middle East just to name a few. I hope through watching the show others are inspired to have conversations with their cab drivers, whether it’s about the driver’s story, or their favourite traditional dishes.”
Andrew Skelton, CEO of 13cabs said: “The cab industry has done more for inclusivity and embracing new Australians of various culture for many years, providing a way for them to integrate into the workforce and community. We are so glad to support this series and help celebrate the diversity of the 13cabs drivers. They are the backbone of 13cabs and celebrating their various cultures via this show is an absolute honour”.
Each episode sees Gare take a 13cabs ride with a driver who has a unique and interesting story. Anna gets to know her cab driver by discovering their background and delving into the common-ground topics of foods and eating experiences. Throughout their trips, the 13cabs drivers share their favourite recipes with Gare who then demonstrates to viewers how they can recreate the exciting dishes at home.
