Tastes of the Tropics is ready to serve audiences

With Screen Queensland hungry for local North Queensland stories, the fruits of the agency’s Tastes of the Tropics are set to tantalise taste buds when the series debuts on SBS Food this week.

Premiering on Wednesday 20 March at 8:00pm, the three-part series will see local presenters share and celebrate a smorgasbord of stories about passionate farmers, innovative chefs and local providores from North and Far North Queensland.

Tastes of the Tropics is part of Screen Queensland’s North Queensland Regional Program, delivered by Screenworks, in association with SBS and supported by Cutting Edge.

The talent development initiative for emerging and mid-career screen practitioners supported selected participants Ewan Cutler, Tamera Simpson, Shontell Ketchell and Glenn Saggers (Pandamonium Films), Alvaro del Campo, Nick Lorentzen and Davy O’Rourke (QC Video), and Maura Mancini, Kim Knox and Alison George. The three groups each received $28,000 to create an episode for the Tastes of the Tropics series, taking viewers on a unique culinary adventure across tropical North Queensland.

The productions teams were mentored by independent Supervising Producer Karen Warner (MasterChef and Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook Melbourne), whose extensive industry experience bolstered the production capabilities of the practitioners, who were supported from script to final edit picture lock by Screenworks.

Tastes of the Tropics launches this week on SBS Food with episode one Tastes of the Tropics: Troppo Kitchen premiering on Wednesday 20 March, episode two Tastes of the Tropics: Iconic FNQ on Wednesday 27 March and the final episode Tastes of the Tropics: Family & Friends on Wednesday 3 April.

Arts Minister Leeanne Enoch said the Miles Government’s ongoing investment in the North and Far North Queensland screen industry would see the delivery this year of the new Screen Queensland Studios, Cairns facility.

“Productions like this support good jobs for local screen professionals and celebrate Tropical North Queensland’s unique flavours, culture and stories,” Ms Enoch said.

“Sharing Queensland stories through the international language of food helps strengthen the state’s reputation as a world-class cultural destination in the lead-up to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Dr Belinda Burns, Screen Queensland’s Chief Creative Officer said the Tastes of the Tropics initiative has been a strategic upskilling endeavour for the agency, serving to expand local industry capacity in North and Far North Queensland as the Screen Queensland Studios, Cairns facility nears completion.

“Screen Queensland is committed to fostering authentic Queensland stories from across the state by bolstering the experience of our regional practitioners and we are proud to have commissioned Tastes of the Tropics as part of our North Queensland Regional Program,” Dr Burns said.

“As well as providing audiences with a fresh perspective on the cuisine culture inherent to the region, the participants have gained invaluable practical knowledge throughout the production process, elevating the skill sets they can apply to future screen projects.

Screenworks CEO, Lisa O’Meara is looking forward to the impact the release of this series will have on the careers of the participants and the benefits this will bring for the local community.

“The filmmakers in this program were given the opportunity to learn from some of Australia’s best screen industry practitioners and this will enhance their careers. These unique stories which have been told by some impressive local talent are so important to the history and culture of the North Queensland community and we are honoured to be part of this narrative alongside Screen Queensland and SBS.”

SBS Head of Entertainment and Food Emily Griggs said “Tastes of the Tropics invites audiences on a tantalising exploration of Tropical North Queensland’s dynamic food culture. Local screen producers and practitioners tapped into their local knowledge beautifully introducing viewers to remarkable people, produce, and places.

“It has been wonderful to work with the teams from Screen Queensland and Screenworks to produce these three episodes. SBS are proud to support such a great initiative, empowering local talent to craft a delightful celebration of the region.”

With the development of the $12.6 million Screen Queensland Studios, Cairns facility nearing completion, there are now more opportunities for North and Far North Queensland locals to develop their careers in the region.

SBS marks Earth Day with Australian TV milestone as The Cook Up with Adam Liaw becomes first show to measure its carbon footprint

  • SBS makes its next step toward ambitious sustainability goals with Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) submission to validate its net zero targets to international standards.
  • Earth Day celebrated with new SBS On Demand collection and new podcast on climate adaptation in regional communities.

Following its industry-first sustainability announcement that SBS plans to reach net zero emissions by 2045, SBS has become the first to measure the carbon footprint of a television program’s production through Sustainable Screens Australia.

SBS’s much-loved cooking program, The Cook Up with Adam Liaw, now in its sixth season, had its carbon footprint validated by the albert Calculator – a tool to calculate and validate greenhouse gas emissions – via the leading screen industry organisation for environmental sustainability, Sustainable Screen Australia, of which SBS is a founding member.

SBS Director of Television, Kathryn Fink said, “We’re thrilled to see The Cook Up with Adam Liaw achieving this important Australian television first.

“At SBS, we have ambitious plans in sustainability and are committed to ensuring they are credible, sound and have meaningful third-party validation which the albert Calculator provided.

“The Cook Up with Adam Liaw recorded emission levels below international industry averages, demonstrating the work being done both behind and in front of the camera to lead in sustainability.

“Not only does the show itself value and celebrate sustainable food and cooking practices, but our production crew have also made impactful changes to catering and transportation to minimise our carbon footprint.

“This is an important first step for this show and others to minimise emissions in production and set up the blueprint for our next shows in this process: Insight and Going Places with Ernie Dingo.”

SBS has also initiated the process for submitting its net zero targets to be validated by global standard Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), the internationally recognised standard for science-based greenhouse gas emissions targets. The SBTi will audit the broadcaster’s decarbonisation modelling to ensure it aligns with the latest science.

Also coinciding with Earth Day, SBS Audio will launch the first two episodes of new podcast Everything We Need, which explores how regional communities are meeting the challenge of climate change.

From dust storms that completely darken towns in the middle of the day to extreme bushfire risk, the six-part series speaks to people experiencing the harsh realities of climate change. In Mildura, Victoria, one of Australia’s food bowls, climate champions and farmers talk about building a resilient future to secure food supply for locals and innovating a system of water trading.

Free to stream on SBS On Demand will be a new Earth Day Collection to enjoy, featuring documentaries and programs with a sustainability theme.

At its 2024 Upfronts, in October last year, SBS announced a number of market leading sustainability announcements including that it had achieved net zero on its direct emissions (covering Scope 1 and 2) and that it was also setting an ambitious target to reach net zero by 2045 across all three scopes, including its supply chain.
