Airdate: A Girl’s Guide to Hunting, Fishing & Wild Cooking.
Chef Analiese Gregory learns to hunt, fish & forage in a new Tassie series on SBS Food.
Michelin star-trained chef Analiese Gregory will feature in new SBS Food series, A Girl’s Guide to Hunting, Fishing & Wild Cooking.
Gregory is leaving her restaurant career for a century-old cottage in Tasmania to forge a new life for herself, learning to hunt, fish, forage and live seasonally, closer to nature.
Analiese Gregory said: “I am thrilled to join the SBS Food family and proud to welcome audiences into my world. I’m on a mission to find a more connected and sustainable life through moving to a tiny island at the bottom of the world and transforming the way that I live. Join me on a deep dive (literally!) into the Tasmanian oceans, forests and farms where I learn not just about food but the importance of community as well. It’s been a wild ride so far and I can’t wait to take everyone on it with me.”
SBS Head of Entertainment and Food, Emily Griggs, said: “We create a lot of wonderful food programs at SBS, but there is something special and unique about A Girl’s Guide to Hunting, Fishing and Wild Cooking with Analiese Gregory. With a slew of enviable kitchen credits to her name, Analiese now swaps her chef’s hat for hunting equipment. Audiences will be delighted to be immersed in Analise’s new life as she dives, forages, and hunts for wild food in beautiful rural Tasmania.”
The series is produced by Southern Pictures & Broken Yellow Productions.
Analiese is determined to bring some wildness into her life and to feel more in touch with her surroundings, so she’s given herself a year to see if she can make her intrepid adventure work. Over a year like no other, she shares her journey of discovery. With the help of her new local community, will she learn the skills she needs, before the untamed southern winter begins?
Hailed as one of the most exciting chefs of her generation, Analiese is swapping the dazzling Michelin star restaurants of Paris’s Le Meurice and Sydney’s Quay for rugged Tasmania. Analiese combines her love of nature with her extraordinary culinary skills to cultivate a cooking and lifestyle ethos of self-sufficiency which respects the seasons and local ingredients.
This exhilarating and stunning series showcases why Analiese is so in demand in the culinary world, with original recipes such as Grilled Scallops with Wakame Jam, Bay Blossom Ice Cream, Grilled Southern Rock Lobster with Sea Urchin Butter and Wallaby Pie with Saltbush.
A Girl’s Guide to Hunting, Fishing and Wild Cooking will ignite your desire to eat seasonally, cook simply, and to find your inner wild, just like Analiese.
