adventure to discover key ingredients to food from his home country
of Malta and to the Middle East. This includes diverse countries
such as Turkey and
Iran. Not only is Shane Delia's Spice Journey a food documentary
about the various cuisines and traditions of these countries but
it's also a great travel documentary as well which showcases the
people, cultures and amazing photography.
element of this food documentary is that it includes some great
links to history and how these recipes date back to powerful
civilizations like the Byzantine Empire and even older such as the
birth of saffron in Persia which is now modern day Iran.
journey, Shane also learns new techniques, recipes and ingredients
which he then brings back to Melbourne Australia to help incorporate
into his modern cuisine. Having eaten at Shane's restaurant before,
The Maha, one can easily see where his influences have come from and
his food documentary helps put things into perspective.
said, if you are looking for a very entertaining and insightful food
documentary than I could I strongly recommend this series and by the
end of it, you'll be wanting to visit 21 Bond Street Melbourne to
sample these amazing food creations.
Last but not least, this series
is not like your traditional food documentary and provides the
viewer with a wealth of information from different cultures, foods
and a great history lesson. Deliciously Recommended!
