The world is divided between two types of people: those who enjoy dining out and those who believe they can do better than the chef.
The Chef’s Line is designed for the latter.
The new SBS food show pits home cooks against chefs from some of Australia’s best restaurants, with chefs Dan Hong, Mark Olive and food writer Melissa Leong on hand to judge their efforts.
Each week, a different leading restaurant is brought in with a focus on a particular cuisine.
“This show really brought it all back home for me. We live in an incredibly multicultural country and we’re very, very lucky to have access to amazing produce that allows us to taste the world without having to travel too far for it,” Leong said.
“This show really is a celebration of our multicultural background as a nation.”
It’s an ambitious project, with SBS promising 65 episodes over 13 weeks showcasing Vietnamese, African, Turkish, Italian, Chinese, Greek, Indian, Lebanese, Spanish, Japanese, French, Thai and Mexican cuisine.
The Chef’s Line airs weeknights on SBS at 6pm (AEDT)
