Another MasterChef graduate gets their own series with Sarah Todd to front My Restaurant In India for SBS.
The model who finished 9th in the 2014 series now has a six part series opening a 400 seat restaurant in Goa, India.
“I’m really thrilled about finding a home at SBS food and to be amongst such impeccable food company. It’s going to be great fun to share my adventures of setting up my very first restaurant in a foreign country with the SBS audiences. Join me for a crazy journey filled with laughter, tears, drama and excitement,” she said.
In October and November SBS celebrates the Diwali festival with a range of upcoming titles.
My Restaurant In India is a brand new food travel series that follows Sarah Todd as she abandons her fashionable Melbourne lifestyle and heads to Goa to face the daunting challenge of setting up and running a 400-seat beach club and restaurant.
In an industry where only one out of three new restaurants survives, she questions if this is just a flight of fancy. Perched on the cliffs above one of the most exclusive stretches of beach in Goa, expectations on this young and passionate restaurant rookie are sky high. With very little industry experience, Sarah has everything to learn about running a restaurant. Armed only with her wits, a burning passion for great food and a deep love of India, the cameras follow Sarah as she strives to turn her restaurant dreams into reality, against the backdrop of a foreign land where she will need to find her feet fast.
There is a long list of things that need to be done and upon arrival Sarah soon discovers that things in India are done a bit differently. With the builders trying to finish construction only weeks before the official restaurant opening, Sarah needs to oversee the interior design and furnishing of the restaurant, set up the kitchen, devise a menu, source produce and find and train chefs and staff. She will also have to juggle her duties as a young mother with her mischievous five-year old son, Phoenix, tagging along for this life-changing journey.
This six part series reveals a rollercoaster of triumphant highs and disastrous lows as Sarah embarks on the crucial stages of the restaurant development, through the chaos of opening night and beyond as she sets about creating the ultimate Goan beach dining experience.
