In Adam & Poh’s Great Australian Bites, Adam Liaw and Poh Ling Yeow start their travels in the heart of Australia at Uluru, moving on to Darwin and Kakadu where they explore Australia’s original First Nations cuisine and subsequent multiculturalism. From there, they travel through regional Victoria, gaining further insight into the three culinary pillars of any Australian town; a pub, a bakery, and a Chinese restaurant.
They then head to Tasmania to investigate the great Aussie meat pie, before making their way to South Australia to discover how the country’s love of café culture took Australian brunch to the world stage. In Sydney, they take inspiration from the icons of Australian food and create a truly spectacular cake, while in Canberra, they attempt to answer the question of what our national dish might be.
