AIRDATE | Erik Thomson and Natalie Abbott ready to cook up some laughs in AFTERTASTE

Advertisement

The ABC has confirmed a February premiere date for the delicious new six-part Australian series Aftertaste.

Aftertaste is a comedy-drama about food, family, second chances and secrets. It is guaranteed to whet your appetite, tickle your funny bone and touch your heart. 

Erik Thomson and newcomer Natalie Abbott lead an impressive line-up of stars, including Rachel Griffiths, Wayne Blair, Susan Prior, Peter Carroll and Remy Hii.

Having burned all his bridges in restaurants across Europe, volatile celebrity chef Easton West (Erik Thomson) finds himself with one more chance in a high-end Shanghai restaurant.

But when opening night turns into a pig-slinging disaster, the subsequent social media tsunami washes Easton ashore in the Adelaide Hills.

Arriving like a pariah to a dysfunctional family he abandoned 30 years previously, he finds his outspoken 19-year-old pastry cook niece, Diana (Natalie Abbott), is the only person who shows any interest in his return.

Diana represents everything he’s not – young, female and with her finger on the pulse – so Easton takes her under his wing in an effort to crawl his way back to relevance. 

Together, Easton and Diana set off on their quest to create Australia’s next great restaurant.

But with no money, an anger management problem, and a volatile family literally built upon the skeletons of the past, Easton West is going to find his comeback a little more difficult than he thought.

Production credits: A Closer production with major production investment from Screen Australia in association with the South Australian Film Corporation and financed with support from the ABC.

Producers: Rebecca Summerton and Erik Thomson.  Co-producer Matthew Bate.  Executive Producers: Julie De Fina and Rachel Griffiths.  ABC Executive Producer: Rebecca Anderson.  International Distributor ABC Commercial.

Aftertaste premieres Wednesday February 3rd at 9pm on ABC and ABC iview.
