Hearing the many challenges facing Gippsland farmers, regional newspaper, Gippslandia and the television documentary series, Behind The Sash, wanted to lend at hand.

With the assistance of award-winning local chefs, restaurateurs, brewers, distillers and producers, you can explore this expansive and vibrant food-producing region through recipes and stories that showcase why Gippsland is a special treat for your taste buds.

As you eat your way through Australia’s southeast, you’ll enjoy classic and contemporary recipes, and show your support for positive social change around rural mental health, as well as gain a better understanding of wonderful people that produce the food you love.

Great to see the hard work of Gippsland's farming community being highlighted on national TV. If you missed the first screening, tune in to Channel 10 at 8am on Sunday or visit 10 play.
