While pizzas were not invented in New York, it’s certainly their spiritual home.
New York is A bit like Theo himself – an amalgam of nationalities, ideas and knowledge. Theo’s a pastry chef of Greek origin, married into an Italian pizza-restaurant family and learned to love and be inspired by the humble Pizza.
Theo Kalogeracos won the world champion pizza maker, 2010. Crowned in New York. He also won the same competition in Las Vegas, twice. He has appeared regularly on television in the US. In fact, after three wins, he’s no longer able to enter and has to content himself with being one of the senior judges.
Theo. He’s funny. He’s passionate. And being a Pastry Chef by trade, he can show food lovers how quick, easy, surprising and inventive this style of cooking can be. Entrée pizzas, main course pizzas and dessert pizzas too.
In this series, Theo will visit the great pizza restaurants in New York. He’ll talk to the owners and pizza chefs, he’ll chat with the patrons too. What inspires them all. Discover their passion. Their family secrets. We’ll ask them to share with us and show us how they do it. And it’s not just the pizza makers who are passionate either – their patrons
Then Theo, renowned for his unusual take on pizzas, will take the basis of the pizza he has just been told about and create his own slightly quirky version in a style that home chefs can follow and replicate.

The extraordinary story of Australia’s war horses – where they came from, where they served,
and what became of those that had survived when Great War hostilities ceased in 1918 . . .
A MagoFilms Production. Producer Marian Bartsch, Director Russell Vines, Writer Barry Strickland.
When the first convoys of the ANZAC Expeditionary Forces sailed from Albany’s majestic King George Sound in November and December 1914, they carried with them hundreds of horses.
Many had been loaded in ports elsewhere in Australia and New Zealand.
Some came from unexpected places, including Juna Downs, a vast pastoral station in
Western Australia’s remote Pilbara region. Over 130,000 Australian horses were to serve our forces, around 70,000 were to die overseas in the line of duty, and none was to return home. What was the fate of up to 50,000 Australian horses that were still alive when guns became silent in 1918?
Adventurers Burke, Derek & Tex the dog are on a quest to discover & uncover real Australian characters, stories & adventures in spectacular landscapes & locations.
Burke Maslen’s a likeable, laid-back, outback stockman, pilot, bull catching, dry humoured larrikin.
Derek Nannup’s an Indigenous standup comedian, film and stage actor, circus clown, didgeridoo playing town boy with an English dad who has a foot in both worlds. Plus there’s also Tex the kelpie. Right hand dog in any adventure. Getting them into trouble on occasions, and providing more than a few laughs here and there.
Burke & Derek link up again and, together, take us into the soul of the real Australia on a journey close to their hearts. Burke following his family's history and connections in the region and Derek, who has travelled widely as an actor throughout the outback, links up with the indigenous history and knowledge of the region that he has lost touch with while living in the city. Plus it's a role reversal scenario too. At the beginning of the journey it's the whitefella Burke, who grew up in the outback, who has so many of the Indigenous bush-craft skills vital for survival. But indigenous town-boy Derek has street smarts of a different kind, teaching Burke a thing or two that will surprise him.
In each location, they’ll embed themselves into the lifestyle and lend a hand to fly a Cessna, herd cattle, save a mare from a swollen river, teach circus tricks at outback schools, trap a rogue wild animal, help a kiddie with their School of the Air homework or join in to remove a cantankerous croc from a creek.
Together they roam far and wide, from the spectacular Pilbara’s iron-ore country, down to the outback Goldfields, across to the world heritage listed Outback Coast & everything in between. An area almost as big as the UK, France & Spain combined. Along the way having some remarkable adventures, meeting unique characters, occasionally have to live off bush tucker on the land.
