Guillaume’s French Atlantic on SBS returns for new season

Guillaume’s French Atlantic – Experience the stunning cuisine and breathtaking wild beauty of the west coast of France, as internationally renowned chef Guillaume Brahimi returns to SBS, travelling on an unforgettable journey from Normandy in the north down to the Spanish border to discover the Atlantic coast’s rich history and iconic produce.

It’s an adventure as eye-catching as it is mouth-watering: Guillaume’s French Atlantic premieres Thursday June 20th at 7.30pm on SBS and SBS On Demand.

The five-part travel and lifestyle series combines fascinating stories about the development of the culinary styles and dishes of this special part of the world with recipes only found along the west coast of France.

From extraordinary coastal views to exquisite culinary experiences, each episode unravels the unique character and flavours of the regions, immersing viewers in a delightful gastronomic adventure.

By travelling through five unique regions, Guillaume discovers how the locals live and dine. From the limestone cliffs of Étretat, to treasure-filled châteaus and idyllic islands, the French Atlantic coast is unique in its heritage and gastronomy.

Guillaume Brahimi is in his element – whether helping the locals with the harvest of the most expensive potatoes in the world, or making a 6 star dish of pigeon fit for a French President in Bordeaux, the culture and cuisine of the west of France brings out his passion.

Starting in picturesque Normandy, Guillaume uncovers the artistic and historic legacy of Honfleur, favourite haunt of the artist Monet, then takes in the architectural marvel of Mont St Michel, before using local produce to craft sumptuous recipes inspired by the region.

Join Guillaume as he traverses the coast from Brittany to Bordeaux, delving into French customs and decadent food heritage, before finishing in the exhilarating markets of Pays Basque.

The breathtaking wild beauty of this coastal drive is matched only by the quality and uniqueness of the cuisine and culture. And for those who wish to bring a taste of the Atlantic into their own home, Guillaume shares twenty delectable recipes that feature the best of the coastline’s culinary traditions.

Guillaume Brahimi said:

“When people ask me, “Where is the most beautiful coastline in the world?” I would say the west coast of France in a heartbeat. I am so excited and proud for people to watch Guillaume’s French Atlantic. In my opinion, the West Coast of France must be one of the best kept secrets of travelling in France. Viewers are going to be transported and fall in love with not only the food and wine from all the regions, but the scenery as well.

Beginning in Étretat and the spectacular White Cliffs and travelling down to the vibrant Spanish border, the Atlantic coastline is characterised by picturesque beaches, incredible clifftops, sand dunes, vineyards and walled cities. Each pocket of the West Coast highlights something unique and special. Normandy for its land and the cream, Brittany for the sea, Pays de la Loire with incredible farmers, Bordeaux and their wine and finally the Pays Basque with its specialty produce. I discovered the best produce in France and met the most incredible and hospitable artisans. They have mastered their craft and devoted their lives to it.”
