Justine Schofield (pictured) is coming to SBS Food in a new series as she sets out on an adventurous journey to unveil the bountiful food offerings of the Northern Territory in her new series Outback Gourmet. Launching on Sunday, 31 March, the channel will air double episodes every Sunday from 7:30pm.
In the eight-part series, the former MasterChef Australia star cooks her way through some of the oldest and most glorious natural landscapes on the planet. She learns the art of camp cooking over coals in Katherine, cooks for park rangers in Kakadu National Park and prepares delicious desert over a campfire in Alice Springs. From bush tucker to modern gourmet delights, Schofield catches up with locals to find out what’s on the menu in the north.
Justine Schofield said: “Northern Territory is one of my most favourite parts of Australia and I love revisiting. This time it was special as I also got to film Outback Gourmet. The Australian outback is full of natural wonders and an amazingly rich culture. I was excited to cook with the locals against the extraordinarily beautiful landscapes. I hope the audiences enjoy watching the series as much as we did while filming it.”
Schofield starts her outback journey in Kakadu discovering the ancient, natural wonders of this unique wilderness, then heads to Katherine where the outback meets the tropics and visits Darwin where she unveils some unique South Asian delights before finishing her trip in Alice Springs.
The series is produced by hsquared for SBS Food. Schofield has previously hosted Justine’s Flavours Of Fuji for SBS Food and she is the host of eight series of Everyday Gourmet for Network 10.
