Series Gourmet Farmer ; Series 1, Episode 1
Summary Australia's toughest food critic, Matthew Evans, has chucked in his city life for small farm living in Tasmania. He has spent most of his life writing about food; Matthew now has to learn from scratch how to grow and rear it himself. Gourmet Farmer follows Matthew as he embarks on his new life: from living in Australia's biggest and busiest city to a country life in an isolated part of the island state. He's eager to seriously put to the test his primary belief that we should all be directly connected with our food: either by growing it or rearing it ourselves, or sourcing it from local producers. So Matthew now wants to go directly to the source. He aims to find the best local produce: to rear and grow as much as he can himself. He wants to get pigs, chooks, sheep and a cow. He wants to grow things for the plate and have his farmhouse table groaning under huge platters of food. And then he wants to have lots of his old and new friends over to share in the spoils. Only problem is, he hasn't a clue how to chop wood, he doesn't know anything about growing fruit and vegetables and he knows even less about rearing animals. However, he does know how to eat. How hard can it be? Having thrown in his successful big-city career, Matthew also plans to make a living selling his own line of artisan food products but will he be able to make a living from the land?
