Best underrated show on the Food Network - Food Safari

Food Safari is one of my absolute favorite shows on the Food Network. The host Maeve O'Meara is an award winning television presenter and is also the author of the Food Lovers' Guide to Australia, Better Homes and Gardens, SBS Eating Guides to Sydney and Melbourne. Her show investigates the many cultures and exotic cuisines that Australia has to offer. Each episode focuses on a certain type of cuisine following professional chefs and families deeply rooted in their culinary traditions. Maeve has serious foodie appeal! She's wonderfully engaging, extremely knowledgeable and presents the information in a very friendly manor. Her quirky style and personable approach makes  this show a must watch for the culinary community. 

Maeve has said "Many of the chefs and cooks appearing are my old friends, so as a viewer you feel like you get a kiss on both cheeks too as you pull up a chair to learn some great recipes and tips." I couldn't agree more. Since the majority of the guests share their most loved family recipes, we as the viewer really feel part of the culinary experience. 

In Canada Food Safari airs at 5:30 EST, and unfortunately it doesn't air repeats like some of the other shows. Keep your eyes peeled and your PVR set! 


  1. I've never heard of this show -- but I'll put it on my PVR thanks to your recommendation! Always great to find another Canadian food blogger too...theresa

  2. I've never heard of this but I am curious! Maybe I'll check the web site and see when it airs for me. Thanks for sharing this! It sounds like something Tay and I would love to watch!
