New Delhi, Aug 5 (IANS) “MasterChef Australia” judge Gary Mehigan will soon be seen exploring food in India and other Asian countries, as well as fast bikes on his new show “Far Flung with Gary Mehigan”. The acclaimed chef says he was amazed at the rich culture and culinary experience India had to offer.
“I was amazed at the rich culture and culinary experience India had to offer. It was exiting to explore the enchanting lanes of old Delhi, the fish markets of Chennai and the magnificent city of Jodhpur. This journey has given me a reason to come back to India and explore more,” Mehigan said in a statement.
Starting August 15, the FOX Life show will catch the traveller and adventurous side of the chef on his fascinating journey through the far flung markets of Asia – India, Vietnam, Laos, South Korea and Hong Kong.
“Far Flung with Gary Mehigan” series begins in India where he discovers the secret of the Mumbai tiffin boxes and tries his hand at making one. He then experiences the craziness of DelhiÂ’s street food style.
After exploring India’s metros, he heads to Jodhpur to get a taste of the Rajasthan International Folk Festival, and chats up with the Maharaja of Jodhpur about his love for Jodhpur, its people and the food.
On his next stop, the chef fulfils his dream of visiting the Royal Enfield factory in Chennai where he rides a Royal Enfield Continental GT along apart from visiting the famous fish markets and cooking on the beach.
“In this show, the viewers will get to see a different side of me, instead of a judge looking like a bank manager on ‘MasterChef’, they get to see me knocking around in a pair of chinos with a rucksack and occasionally a motorbike,” Mehigan said.
