Roma’s beautiful produce highlighted in The Chef’s Secret

AMAZING local produce grown in our own backyard has been highlighted in season two of The Chef’s Secret which launched online yesterday.

Amy Clark from the Mum Collective and children Sienna, Ewan and Bonnie were the local family invited to be featured in one episode, which took place at the Big Rig – the birthplace of natural gas.

“The Big Rig is one of Roma’s most treasured tourist attractions and celebrates the long history of natural gas in central Queensland,” Mr Richardson said who cooked up a family focused fish and chip treat that makes the most of locally sourced Murray Cod, all on a natural gas BBQ.

“My entire career, I’ve cooked with gas – and I wouldn’t do it any other way,” he said.

“When you’re using a gas BBQ, you can cook just about anything.”

The renowned chef also featured Maranoa Beef in an episode, filming at the beautiful “Pine Tree” property just outside Roma.

This season of the Chef’s Secret, Adrian and his barbecue hit the road, with all six episodes filmed between Roma and Toowoomba using almost exclusively local products and produce. Families and business owners join Adrian along the way to show him around and talk to him about their produce and the region.

“Brighter are proud to be bringing you a closer look at this beautiful part of the country, and the people who make this community the third most diverse economy in Australia. The onshore gas industry, agriculture and food production are thriving in this region and we want the country to see it in action,” said Brighter Director, Sarah Browne.

“Adrian has met many of the industry’s local partners, who have a connection with the gas industry in the area. We simply wouldn’t have the gas to power our BBQs, or a lot of the food we enjoy cooking on the BBQ, without these hardworking people in the Toowoomba and Surat Basin region.”
