[MUSIC] In Sydney, Australia the Eberle farmer's market offers beautiful super fresh produce at more than 70 stalls. [MUSIC] It is also home to two star chef Who prepare creative and sometimes surprising dishes right there in the market. These are my roasted insects, roasted meal warms, roasted crickets. Kylie Kwong, author of best selling cookbook, TV host and chef at Billy Kwong marries her Chinese roots with native Australian ingredients. I would encourage all people to get on board and eat insects, because they're actually delicious. I mean they just taste like dried shrimp. These aren't just any ordinary bugs. These are organic [LAUGH]. If you really don't want bugs, wander down a few stalls and you'll find slightly more traditional food from another star chef. Alice Herbert adds a little twist To the classic French [UNKNOWN], a glorified grilled cheese with an egg on top. We call ours a Crooked Madame. Why is your madame crooked? Why is my madame crooked? Good question. Because I make a barbecue sauce and so we put Dijon and barbecue sauce in our Croque Madame's, it's a pretty delicious barbecue sauce. And how did you come up with that? Is there something uniquely Australian about putting those things together? Well, yeah, it's quite Australian to have a bacon and egg roll with barbecue sauce. Mm, the barbecue sauce It's transformative. This without the barbecue sauce is delicious. But with it is explosive. It is so good. [BLANK_AUDIO]
