New Delhi | From beetroot crumble to Popcorn Ice cream, Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s Australian food trail brings quintessential food from the continent down under out of the conventional kitchen into a world of entertainment, travel and adventure.

Highlighting the finest food and wine experiences the new show ‘Out of the World’ on the Food Food Channel is set to take the viewers on a food trail across the length and breadth of Australia.

The idea culminated when I was shooting for the series ‘Out of Africa’, I had decided that my next destination will be Australia as it was not new to me.

Australia is an all-in-one continent that embraces fruits, vegetables, meats and fish all throughout its land. I would say that every Indian state exists in Australia! Chef Kapoor said.

Australia’s multicultural cuisine, vibrant cities and breathtaking natural landscapes have been captured by the Master Chef in this fun-filled television series.

We had our share of challenges in a foreign land, but most of it was an absolute adventure and all of us, including me, thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it! From the enthralling helicopter ride around the natural wonder of Australia, the 12 Apostle rock formations that kept us spellbound. Every moment was spectacular, Kapoor said.

He starts his journey with Brisbane followed by Gold Coast (Queensland), Sydney, Blue Mountains (New South Wales), Melbourne, Great Ocean Road (Victoria) and Adelaide, Kangaroo Island (South Australia), with each destination standing out distinctly different from the other and defined by its own unique characteristics.

Breakfast at central market in Adelaide made a huge impression on everyone.

Food was seen in abundance here, be it the cheeses, meats, pork, beef, fish, fruits, fresh produce, the traditional damper, cheesecakes etc, Kapoor said. Through this show, the Chef-cum-entrepreneur will savour the flavors of the country’s best culinary experiences, cooking with Australian ingredients and alongside Aussie chefs.

Kangaroo Island with the cooking session with Chef Kate was our very own Indian spot in Australia here I was pleasantly surprised to see homegrown spices that are found in the Indian kitchen as well, he said.

Seasonal vegetables, fresh produce combined as we rustled up an Australian Aubergine Halumi Cheese Zucchini Salad. With a hungry Indian crew on hand, I played saviour for Indian palate holders by cooking and teaching Kate our traditional baingan bharta and kadhi too, Kapoor said.
