Such a brilliant day filming with this legend @chef_andrewmcconnell the culinary genius behind some of Melbourne’s top restaurants @cumulusinc @cutlerandco @supernormal_180 and many more.. this is the beach on the Mornington Peninsula where he spent summers with his brothers .. as s chef he’s now tuned in to sea vegetables and succulents growing in the dunes .. some of which garnish a cracking recipe for calamari .. lightly scored and seared over charcoal and served with a homemade oyster sauce (less sweet and cloying and easy to make) .. learned so much .. thanks Andrew. #foodsafariwater tonight at 8pm. #calamari #seafoodrecipes #cookingonfire
It is no surprise that food is the factor taking most of the travel show hosts on this list to places around the globe. And when we talk about food and travel, few come close to the expertise of Maeve O’Meara, the face of Fox Life’s Food Safari, who has spent over twenty years discovering food across continents.
Shenaz TreasuryView this post on Instagram
Actor, host, and recently turned travel vlogger, Shenaz Treasury has been spreading wanderlust with her Instagram posts off late. She checks into the best of hotels and resorts around the globe and shows us how lavish life can be.
Ritu DalmiaView this post on Instagram
While we all definitely look up to celebrity chef Ritu Dalmia for expert advice on Italian cuisine, a lot of us can also take cue from her free-spirited self. She sets a fine example of how you can be both gentle and a boss lady at heart.

It’s so rare that we get together & what a cracking bunch of people …good looking too……???? @gcalombaris @steliosparliaros @manufeildelofficial @thecrazybull @chefmattmoran @chef_mcleod @chefmattmoran @chefbennett23 @mattscravat @nigellalawson @travismcauley #greece #lovegreece #athens #greekfood #foodies #chefs #cooks #truecooks #lovetotravel #goodfriends
Brilliant and charming, Chef Gary Mehigan is cooler than you think. The 51-year old loves to ride, make lunch for his kids, and take his dogs for a walk. Young at heart, he chooses street food over fine dining, any given day – and in an exclusive interview with us recently, he declared that Indian is his favourite kind of street food. What’s not to love?
Sarah ToddView this post on Instagram
From seeing her set up her own restaurant in Goa in My Restaurant in India, and discovering the Goan state like a local in Serve it Like Sarah to the recent one-hour documentary, Awesome Assam with Sarah Todd, aired on Fox Life India and National Geographic Channel, where she visits different heritage sites of the state, savouring the ethnic cuisines and enjoying quality time in the tea gardens, and boat journeys on the mighty Brahmaputra, Sarah Todd is a stunning mix of beauty and brains.
Peter KuruvitaView this post on Instagram
My Sri Lanka with Peter Kuruvita unveiled the island nation of Sri Lanka like never before. With his roots in Sri Lanka, Australian chef and restaurateur Peter Kuruvita is a man of travels. When not in the kitchen, you’ll find him surfing along coast.
David Rocco and his Dolce series is the reason behind many a backpacker. The way he brings about the charm of any street across the globe is nothing but inspiring. He is undoubtedly one of the coolest travel show hosts, but nothing is cooler than the way he is with his kids.
Rocky & Mayur
Everybody’s favourite Rocky & Mayur are yet another bunch of cool hosts. They appeal to the masses with their simple yet interesting personalities, discovering one great eatery at a time – nothing fancy, just really good food.
