Miguel Maestre showcases the Barossa

Chef and television personality, Mr Miguel Maestre has completed a week of filming in the Barossa Valley for an upcoming episode of Network Ten’s lifestyle programme, The Living Room.

Miguel visited a number of popular Barossa food and wine locations and said that he enjoyed being able to showcase the beauty of the region.

“Last November we worked with Maggie Beer for The Living Room, so it wasn’t our first time in the Barossa,” said Miguel.

“We have loved our time here, it’s been paradise for a chef like me.”

During their stay, Miguel and crew were able to visit a range of locations including The Barossa Valley Cheese Company, the Barossa Farmers Market, Hutton Vale Farm, Seppeltsfield Winery and The Jam Factory and Apex Bakery.

Miguel said that the week was “full on”, but that he was particularly impressed by knife maker, Barry Gardner, whose studio is based at The Jam Factory.

“Barry was amazing! He uses recycled knives, old ball bearings and chainsaws to make new knives,” he said.

“It was absolutely fantastic.

“I also loved visiting Apex Bakery, which has been run by four generations of the Fechner family and is really special.

“Each experience has been beautiful, but eating lamb in Jan Angas’ kitchen at Hutton Vale is another that really stands out.

“She grows her own veggies and her food was wonderful.”

 Miguel says that The Living Room now has a large following and that he felt privileged to be able to showcase the Barossa as a special Australian location.

“We just wanted to put together a really great segment and show all of the amazing and beautiful things that the Barossa has to offer,” he said.

“I can’t wait to come back again sometime because there’s just so much work to do here and we have had so much fun.

“On The Living Room we love to have fun.

“I just wish we could stay in the Barossa for longer!”
