NSW’s outstanding produce, culinary experiences and tourism offerings, including Taronga Western Plains Zoo, will be in the spotlight in a new six-episode food series starring the trio of chefs behind NSW-born restaurants Three Blue Ducks.
The program, which takes its name from the highly acclaimed restaurants, will air on Network Ten from this Saturday, February 13, and features chefs Andy Allen, Darren Robertson and Mark Labrooy road tripping in the name of menu research.
Supported by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, the series features ‘must visit’ NSW food destinations and Member for the Dubbo Electorate Dugald Saunders said it was fantastic to see our region profiled for its food and tourism experiences on the national stage.
“In an episode to air on February 20, the chefs head to the central west and I hope all Australians tune in to see our wonderful zoo in Dubbo and the food offerings, including Outback Lamb at Tullamore, so they are inspired to visit soon in search of unique and authentic experiences you won’t find anywhere else,” Mr Saunders said.
“There are so many excellent businesses involved in the visitor economy here in Central NSW for holidaymakers to support, and it’s wonderful that our part of the world is receiving this national exposure.”
Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said NSW’s reputation for the freshest produce and world-class visitor experiences was the envy of other Australian states and territories.
“Visitors have always enjoyed exploring the rich food culture of our state so it’s no surprise that the Three Blue Ducks team has not only established their flagship restaurants here in NSW, but also that the state features in most of the culinary adventures in their inaugural TV series,” Minister Ayres said.
Three Blue Ducks premieres on Network Ten at 7pm, Saturday 13 February, and NSW will feature in five episodes through to Saturday 20 March. Tune in on Saturday 20 February to see our region featured.
