For many years I’ve dreamed of traveling the route Phileas Fogg took in Jules Vern’s famous novel, Around the World in 80 Days, but with a special twist. My adventure would be a culinary voyage — cooking, eating, and sharing the food of each amazing destination with the people I met along the way!
Of course I couldn’t just follow the footsteps of Fogg, there must be a modern-day challenge to keep it interesting. Could I circumnavigate the globe with only 30 days, and an AU$20,000 budget?
To make sure I can experience as much as possible I’m allowed to top-up my coffers by washing dishes, cooking meals and even busking, but I cannot accept travel or money without earning it.

Manu Feildel is passionate about many things in his life. His family, his adopted home of Australia, his French origins and the thing that is on his mind 24/7 — food. The idea for Around the World with Manu came to him about 15 years ago, long before he ever dreamed of being on TV, and he’s finally been able to fulfill that dream!
