Western Sydney’s diverse food and culture, outstanding business owners and natural beauty will star in two upcoming episodes of Taste of Australia with Hayden Quinn on Network Ten.
The current series is a special Sydney Edition showcasing Sydney’s rich and multicultural mosaic of people, places and experiences.
This Sunday, 19 September, the MasterChef alumnus will explore the diverse flavours of Western Sydney feasting on bold Filipino flavours on the shores of Lake Parramatta.
NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said the Taste of Australia – Sydney Edition would uncover some of Sydney’s most culturally diverse neighbourhoods and showcase the lesser-known experiences that make the city so appealing for visitors.
“It’s exciting to see Western Sydney profiled through this popular lifestyle program as Hayden discovers the diversity and beauty of this special region,” Mr Ayres said.
“From paddling in a classic wooden rowboat on Lake Parramatta to preparing delicious suckling pig with acclaimed Sydney Cebu Lechon chef Will Mahusay, you’ll be inspired by the authentic experiences on offer in Western Sydney just as Hayden was.
“Sydney has a vibrant energy and a rich tapestry of experiences, from famous beaches and award-winning waterfront restaurants to its thriving multicultural neighbourhoods offering global flavours at your fingertips, as well as world-class arts, culture and entertainment after dark.
“These diverse stories help to reinforce Sydney’s standing as Australia’s truly global city, and a place to visit for unbeatable experiences for all tastes and demographics.”
On Sunday 10 October the episode will also focus on Western Sydney, featuring a visit to Bahar Persian Food and Art, 32 Bakehouse at Ryde and Cables Wake Park in Penrith.
Produced in partnership with the NSW Government through Destination NSW, Taste of Australia with Hayden Quinn: Sydney Edition features 10 of Sydney’s neighbourhoods as seen by locals, where Hayden teams up with chefs, entertainers, social influencers and media personalities to explore their pockets of the city and gain personal and local insights across the food and drink, entertainment and culture space.
Taste of Australia with Hayden Quinn: Sydney Edition is broadcast on Network Ten each Sunday at 4:30pm. The episodes are also available to stream on demand on 10 Play.
