I am glued to every cooking adventure that The Chefs’ Line brings on SBS TV. So far there has been so much delicious interest introduced to our small screens as we watch the magic of ethnic cooking unfold. So far there has been Lebanese, Chinese, Turkish and so many more multicultural cuisines featured.

Under the baton of the Magical Maeve O’Meara, this thought-provoking show lets us see home cooks pitted against the professional chefs that specialise in the specific cuisine that is being featured. I just love the way that the dishes unfold without any trickery. Good on SBS for having such forethought for this show and such brilliant production quality.

More to the point it is another example of where food has come in this country and how well such cooking shows have been accepted. Sure there are plenty other shows on other networks, all featuring the superb produce of this country and the super exponents that make them and their dishes some of the best, if not the best, in the world.

There can be no doubt that Australia’s ethnic mix is abundant in our country and also that two of the chefs I have seen (and know) are fully trained in the apprentice system (as are George and Curtis) and with that basic training and good industry experience they have gone on to operate excellent restaurants that lead the way to sublime eating in our country.
