Gourmet Farmer s1 - Episode 4
It's raining apples in Tasmania, and Matthew's ready to make full use of the abundant harvest. He learns how to make cider and cooks an apple and blackberry shortcake for his visiting Mum. All very well, but Matthew sorely needs to find a way of earning a living. With his partner Ross, he prepares a range of pork products to sell at an artisan food stall at Hobart's premium marketplace, Salamanca markets. It's a sell-out but at number-crunching time they discover they've made a meagre profit of $2.20 per hour!
Gourmet Farmer s1 - Episode 5
Matthew is settling into the routine of life on the farm and, impulsively, he decides to add turkeys to his menagerie - a decision he starts to regret. Meanwhile he attends to installing a wood-fired stove, a practical but initially expensive way to cook and heat his house. To ensure good outcomes from its use, he and Nick visit Nene on Bruny Island for a lesson. In return, he offers to roast one of his turkeys. Whilst it cooks, they go abalone diving and return for a feast of abalone stir-fry and roast turkey. Back on the farm, another confronting challenge - he has to learn how to dispatch his over-supply of roosters, with the help of friend Jen.
