Following the success of Season 1 of his new TV series, Matt Moran is launching a second season of Kitchen Tales, with more surprise menus and great conversation with some of Australia’s most interesting personalities in his home kitchen. The series commences on May 2.
Across eight episodes broadcast on YouTube and IGTV, Moran invites friends and guests who inspire him into his home, and recreates some of their favourite food memories. It’s only as he cooks that they start to work out what’s on the menu. The dishes reveal Moran has done his research, delving into the meals that have stayed with each guest – from what they loved (or hated) for dinner growing up, dishes they cooked to woo their partner, and the weirdest places they have cooked.
In each episode, the guests tell stories that reveal a lot about themselves, and Moran shares some personal stories and cooking tips along the way, while he takes guests through how to prepare the dishes he’s making.
The Season 2 line up features:
Jane and Jimmy Barnes – music legends and food lovers
The Stefanovic brothers (pictured at top) – TV hosts and an almond farmer,
together in an interview for the first time
The Inspired Unemployed – popular comedic influencers
Zoe Terakes – up and coming actor and activist
Ronni Kahn – waste warrior and founder of OzHarvest
Angie Hong – renowned Vietnamese chef and mother of chef Dan Hong
Matt Wright – Northern Territory-based ‘Outback Wrangler’
Vincent Fantauzzo – influential artist and Matt’s best mate
“I love filming this show. I feel very lucky to spend a few hours with these inspiring friends in my favourite place, my kitchen,” says Moran. “It’s no secret that the kitchen’s where all the best stories get told, and each time I welcome a guest into the kitchen, I learn something really surprising or special about them. There are some cracking tales in this season and, of course, the food’s not bad either.”
Great Australian produce is at the heart of everything Moran does and Kitchen Tales showcases some of Australia’s best produce from Olsson’s salt, Alto Olive Oil, Messina ice cream, Mandolé Orchard almond milk, Malfroy’s Gold honey, Maremma duck, Humpty Doo Barramundi and, of course, Moran family farm beef.
The first episode of Kitchen Tales will be live on May 2 via Moran’s YouTube channel, with episodes released every week for eight weeks. To watch Kitchen Tales, subscribe to Moran’s YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/chefmattmoran.
