The series, which has already screened in 32 countries, has come about from a joint venture between Australian wild food devotee turned Executive Producer, Vic Cherikoff and Canadian TV Producer, Grant Patterson. Vic also hosts the show supported by chefs, Benjamin Christie and Mark McCluskey, who demonstrate that Australian tourism and trade is a lot more than just ÂCome on over and meet an Aussie from the bushÂ but a culinary experience of a fusion of quality foods made globally unique with authentic Australian ingredients.
