It’s the reality cooking show that’s shown in over 180 countries.
It’s spawned South Australian culinary geniuses like Adam Liaw (second season winner), Poh Ling Yeow and Callum Hann (runners up), Andre Ursini (of Andre’s Polenta Bar fame), Jessie Spiby and more.
And now, in its 10th season, judges Gary Mehigan, Matt Preston and George Calombaris, and the latest batch of contestants, come to Adelaide (filmed earlier this year, airing this week).
On the itinerary? All the Adelaide hot spots like Barossa Valley, D’Arenberg Cube, Maggie Beer’s Farm, Adelaide Central Market and Victoria Square.
Whether it’s Barossa Valley or Mclaren Vale for the wine, Port Lincoln for the seafood, Adelaide Hills for cheeses (and more) or Kangaroo Island for many artisan products, it’s easy to see why they chose Adelaide – it’s a food lover’s paradise!
Make sure you are watching/streaming/recording the show this week.
