Surfing the Menu is one of ABC Commercial’s most successful cooking formats. Launching the international careers of chefs Ben O’Donohue and Curtis Stone, the original Surfing The Menu has enjoyed global success, selling in over 70 countries.
Now rebooted and re-energised, the new TV series stars good mates Dan Churchill and Hayden Quinn and will be available on DVD from 17 August 2016.
Dan and Hayden share a love of cooking, surfing, fresh food, travel and adventure, and that’s exactly what Surfing the Menu: Next Generation is all about.
In this new 13 part TV series, Dan and Hayden head off on an adventure around Australia in their trusty, rusty 50-year-old VW Bug, nicknamed GiGi. On the journey they four-wheel drive in the desert, head to an outback cattle station, share a Tongan feast, learn to sail, snorkel on the Ningaloo and Great Barrier Reefs, catch mud crabs, swim with mantra rays and prove that they’re perhaps the unluckiest fisherman in the country.
They share experiences with Indigenous communities such as searching underground for native bee nests and for bush foods and medicines. They also surf and go horse-riding in some remarkable locations.
Along the way they meet passionate food producers of everything from heritage tomatoes, cheeses, beef, goats, mangoes and herbs, to exotic mushroom, shrimp, rum and salt.
The boys turn these fresh ingredients into simple, healthy and delightfully delicious recipes that will inspire you.
The DVD also includes Behind-The-Scene extras for each episode.
