Spellbinding locations and culinary delights!
Join Stefano on a culinary adventure around the Sunraysia/Mallee Region, which produces over 60% of Australia's meat, fruit and veg. Stefano utilises local produce to tantalise your appetite with Italian inspired infusions, and combines his traditional Venetian techniques with genuine outback gusto. Recipes, tips on produce selection and Stefano's boundless wit and charm comes through in every episode.
Stefano hunts and gathers his way through spellbinding locations: a houseboat on the great Murray River, an intoxicating taste test in sprawling vineyards, a citrus feast in picture-perfect orange groves, and even a sunset BBQ on a spectacular salt lake.
Meet Stefano's friends; from celebrity chefs to the Italian mamma next door, Stefano will introduce us to the region's most impassioned personalities who each share a common love of rustic cuisine.
Stefano explores the evolution of Italian/Australian cooking through the years, with specific focus on the Australian influence on the cuisine. Stefano's homemade produce, such as salami, prosciutto, tomato sauce and wine, has been organic and chemical free for generations, and he brings this same passion to the food showcased on Paradiso.
