New Delhi, Oct 18 (IANS) "MasterChef Australia" judge Gary Mehigan is returning to India for another round of culinary adventures, as part of Australia's cultural festival Oz Fest. Eager to learn more about Indian cuisine, he is "excited" about his visit.

Mehigan will be out and about in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Jodhpur, and his travels will be filmed for his new television series pilot "Far Flung with Gary Mehigan".

"I'm so excited to be returning to India for my third trip. The sights, sounds and tastes of India have stayed with me since my first trip to the saffron land last year as part of Oz Fest," he added.

"I have been so inspired by Indian cuisine and eager to learn more, but also to share my passion for Australia and the amazing food we have to offer. I am secretly in love with Indian breads, parantha, dosa, naan, the list goes on," said the ambassador for Oz Fest.

Delhi will see Mehigan as a special guest at 'A Great Southern BBQ', featuring a BBQ menu including Australian sanger lamb, wines and beer, and fun games and activities for children Sunday.

He will also conduct a cooking demonstration and will also be joined by Fisher & Paykel brand ambassador Ritu Dalmia to judge a few cooking competitions for the invited guests.

The event will take place at the Australian High Commission. It is presented as part of Oz Fest in collaboration with the Australian New Zealand Indian Business Association (ANZIBA), Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), Sanger Australia, La Carne Cuts, Fisher & Paykel, Brindco and Fosters.

In Chennai, Mehigan will treat food aficionados to the gastronomic delights of Mulwarra Australian lamb and wine. He will also visit the Royal Enfield factory.

In Mumbai, he will sign books for fans at a bookstore. The chef will also join Indian celebrity chef Vicky Ratnani on his new show "Party Kitchen" on NDTV Good Times to dish out some party recipes.
