Matthew Evans: Now filming the second series of SBS’ The Gourmet Farmer, Matthew Evans is the author of several books on food, including his memoir, Never Order Chicken on a Monday, which chronicles his rise from badly dressed Canberra boy to badly dressed restaurant reviewer being sued for his writing in The Sydney Morning Herald. A former restaurant critic who ate out about 500 times a year just for work, Matthew has long been passionate about what we put in our mouths. In fact, he used to be a chef, though by all accounts he’s much better now. These days Matthew lives the life most of us can only dream about, rearing old breed pigs and chooks and baking in a woodfired cooker on a small farmlet in Tasmania’s beautiful Huon Valley. When he’s not milking Priscilla the cow, he’s trying to get vegies to grow where the possums won’t eat them. Matthew’s last book published by Murdoch Books was The Real Food Companion
Matthew will be visiting Central and South West Queensland from Monday 20 May to Wednesday 23 May.
