Popular Chef and avid traveller, Vicky Ratnani is all set to take the viewers of Living Foodz on an adventure-filled trip to Australia on his upcoming show 'Taste Down Under', starting August 1.

Through the show, viewers can explore Australia's extraordinary landscapes, pristine white sand beaches, ancient tropical rainforests, exquisite café culture and enjoy a multicultural culinary experience.

An excited Chef Vicky Ratnani says, "I had a wonderful time travelling to Australia and experiencing the stunning beaches and diversity in food and culture. I am taking back memories for a lifetime like quad biking at Kangaroo Island, barbecuing in Burleigh Heads, going on an aboriginal heritage tour at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, discovering the coffee culture at quaint cafés in Melbourne, and many more unforgettable experiences. I got a chance to experiment with innovative and locally inspired dishes such as Kangaroo Island BBQ with Halloumi, Queen Victoria Salad using fresh local produce, Prawn and Tomato Cocktail among others. I look forward to sharing this incredible journey with the viewers".

Australia has emerged as a must-do destination on every Indian traveller's bucket list. Its many iconic landmarks include the Melbourne Star, Opera house, Bondi Beach, Adelaide Oval Cricket Ground, Kangaroo Island, etc.

Commenting on the show, Mr. Amit Nair, Business Head of Living Foodz, said, "Today, travel has become an innate part of the urban Indian lifestyle. Indian travelers are constantly scouring for new destinations and unique experiences. Australia has emerged as a favourite destination for a range of travellers, from backpackers and independent travellers to families. Hence, it was a strategic decision to partner with Tourism Australia for the show. We are excited to expand our boundaries and introduce the first international show on Living Foodz. 'Taste Down Under' integrates the best of food and travel and is a unique addition to our programming mix."

'Taste Down Under' will provide a peek into Chef Vicky's visit to the globally renowned, Michelin-starred restaurant Noma Australia.
