LM kangaroo croppedHome cook hero Lyndey Milan returns to TV to taste Australia!

Australia’s much-loved TV personality Lyndey Milan is heading back to our screens 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 yet 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 producers, wine makers and top chefs.

From foraging on a rocky beach with the charismatic Rick Stein or cooking with Pete Evans in a sustainable school garden, to talking with Maggie Beer about her love of the Barossa, Lyndey shares her Taste of Australia with some of the country’s most celebrated 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 the majestic backdrop of Sydney harbour.

The home cook hero enjoys a variety of activities as she meets farmers and producers across the country. Lyndey rolls up her sleeves and pulls on her gumboots to experience goat milking, camel riding, wood chopping at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, gold panning, boot scootin’ at the Tamworth country music festival and even salmon milking in Victoria’s Yarra Valley.

Whether fishing, foraging for mushrooms or snail farming, Lyndey’s passion for Australian food and produce is contagious. This 16 part series explores the best the sunburnt country has to offer from traditional, Aboriginal native foods to refined contemporary classics as seen through the eyes of an Aussie food legend.
