Korean journalist Sungyun Kim, Chinese celebrity chef Walter Kei and Malaysian food personality Chef Wan visited New South Wales to find out why the state is home to some of the world’s best food and wine.
Join us on a food and wine adventure through New South Wales with three international foodies as they explore the state's wineries, food markets and restaurants.
With hundreds of cellar doors, award-winning fresh produce, luxury culinary getaways, stellar restaurants and fine wines from 14 very different regions; New South Wales is a gourmet destination with the lot.
The journey began with Sungyun Kim visiting Matt Moran’s Chiswick at the Gallery to try classics like snow crab sliders and slow-roast Moran family lamb. He followed by sampling some of Australia’s finest Wagyu beef at Vic’s Meat Market’s teppan-style Wagyu Bar. A panoramic view of Sydney Harbour was then matched with great Australian wine at the renowned vantage point of Café Sydney.
Chef Wan found out why Sydney is a seafood paradise. He jumped on board a Ricochet Yachting cruise around Sydney Harbour, not only savouring the incredible sights but also the taste of freshly shucked Sydney Rock Oysters with Ewan McAsh of McAsh Oysters. From there, Wan interacted with the colourful fishmongers at the bustling Sydney Fish Market, a place that supplies some of Australia’s most celebrated restaurants with their seafood.
Meanwhile in the Hunter Valley, Walter Kei studied the vines of Adina Vineyard and sampled some of their award-winning wines. The vineyard’s very own and hatted Emerson’s Restaurant then served Kei some modern Australian cuisine made from fresh, locally sourced Hunter Valley produce.
