Overview

Sammy & Bella are on a mission to help everyday Australians overhaul their recipes and rescue their disorganised kitchens. Each week, we meet a new guest in need of a makeover. Follow Sammy & Bella as they share fast and easy recipes, handy kitchen hacks and get down to business rearranging and rescuing kitchens across Australia.

 

14 – 20 Jan: Episode 1

Don’t gnocch-it ‘till you try it! Mamma Mia! The closest Dan and Janna come to cooking Italian is ordering pizza so this week, Sammy and Bella teach the pair how to make an authentic polo all cacciatore, a super simple handmade gnocchi sorrentina, torta caprese cake and a refreshing sorrento spritz. Back at Dan and Jann’s cosy kitchen, the girls give the fridge and pantry a sparkling makeover and restore order to their cluttered utensil drawer.

 

 

Episode 2

Donut tell me this is gluten free!
This week we meet new mum Mary, whose passion for recreating her Yaya’s traditional Greek recipes is hindered by her husband’s gluten intolerance. Never ones to shy away from a challenge, Sammy and Bella show Mary how to make gluten-free pastitso, a mouth-watering lamb sandwich that can’t be beat and some amazing gluten free donuts with a toffee sauce that is out of this world! Back at Mary’s place, the girls tackle a very messy vacuum cleaner cord and get rid of the harsh chemicals under her sink.

Episode 3

Muscle Man Ragu Eric is young, handsome and successful but can’t cook to save his life and all that’s in the cupboard is protein powder! Sammy and Bella restock the cupboards with everything Eric needs to cook restaurant-quality dishes at home, teach him how to make slow-cooked beef ragu, crunchy Japanese tempura and coffee chipotle pulled-chicken burgers that will have his mates buzzing!

Episode 4

Newlyweds who can’t agree This week Sammy and Bella visit Vanessa and Greg, newlyweds with food preferences that clash! She’s a pescatarian who loves carbs, while Greg follows more of a Paleo diet. Compounding this is their chaotic compact kitchen, which sorely lacks storage space. Sammy & Bella invite the couple to Kitchen Rescue Central to show them some new recipes that they will both love to cook, including a vegetarian porcini mushroom cassoulet that speaks to Vanessa’s French heritage. Later they return home with the newlyweds to restore order to their cramped kitchen cupboards.

Episode 5

Fast, Healthy, Delicious This week we meet Hana. With a young child at home and another on the way Hana needs help getting her kitchen organised before life gets even more hectic. Sammy & Bella visit Hana’s house to see how they can help before taking her to Kitchen Central to share their easy recipes and clever hacks including dishes inspired by her Vietnamese heritage and guaranteed to make her parents proud. They show Hana how to cook a haul of simple, new recipes and head back to her house to re-organise her kitchen so her Sammy & Bella kitchen rescue is complete.

Episode 6

Portug-EASY chicken This week we meet Marguerite – an Irish woman who is desperate to impress her Portuguese husband with some of his homeland recipes and has a problem of letting go. Sammy and Bella spice things up with some classic Portuguese chicken, salmon handkerchief pasta and scrumptious espresso pancakes topped with golden caramel chocolate sauce. Back at Marguerite’s house, the girls strip the cluttered pantry back to just the essentials and find a terrifying Christmas surprise in the back of the fridge!

Episode 7

Dinner for One This week we meet Pete; a single guy looking for love whose go to meal is takeaway. Pete’s hoping Sammy & Bella can rescue his very spartan kitchen set up and show him how to cook some quick, simple, healthy meals. Top of the agenda for Pete are some dishes he can create to impress the ladies. He’s also keen to learn a few ‘bloke food’ style recipes that are easy to make at home. Sammy & Bella have their work cut out for them at Kitchen Central before heading back to Pete’s house for a desperately needed Kitchen Rescue.

Episode 8

You get a salmon! You get a salmon! Everyone gets a salmon! This week we meet Tracey, a mother of 3 with a chicken called Oprah. Her new home renovations have left her with a ‘glamping pantry’ and a nightmare fridge in dire need of some better storage solutions. With 3 super sporty kids, Tracey’s after fast healthy meals that can feed the whole family. Sammy and Bella show her a 20 minute salmon recipe; adorable vegetarian stuffed tomatoes and Tracey’s daughter Sage joins and gets her hands dirty with a delicious lemonade scone recipe.

Episode 9

Sharing is Caring This week we meet busy sisters May & Maha. They live in a share house with a few of their friends. Everyone has their own separate food cupboards and it’s rare for them to cook or eat together. Since the sisters also hate washing up, Sammy & Bella invite them to Kitchen Rescue Central to teach them some ‘one pot wonders’ and on trend recipes that are simple to cook at home. Back at May and Maha’s house, Sammy & Bella tackle the challenging kitchen arrangements to set them up with a functional, user-friendly space.

Episode 10 

Fussy Eaters This week, Sammy and Bella rescue food blogger and father of two, Simon. While he loves experiencing new cafes and cuisines, his daughters are fussy eaters. Sammy and Bella devise some sneaky but clever tricks to get more veggies into their family meals. They even get the girls involved in helping their dad, Simon to make colourful homemade pasta! Back at Simon’s house Sammy and Bella are bringing in some additional storage solutions to help make the family kitchen a little bit more organised and functional.

Episode 11

Leftover Lovers This week we meet time poor, working parents Kimberley and Jonathan. This meat loving couple, with two children who are both picky eaters, want to find ways to add more veggies into their meals without compromising on flavour. With Sammy and Bella’s help, they’ll discover some flavour packed, time saving recipes the whole family will love. Plus we explore the food culture of Jonathan’s Malaysian/Indian heritage for inspiration.

Episode 12

Let’s taco ‘bout it! Betty and Lisa are teeny tiny sisters living in a teeny tiny house. Lovers of both healthy and on trend cuisine, they’re hoping Sammy and Bella can help them reduce their weekly takeout bill. At Kitchen HQ Sammy & Bella get the fiesta started with some healthy fish tacos, a bubbly kombucha apple spritz and lean green tofu Buddha Bowls with a southern Asian-inspired pesto. They also solve the girls’ teeny-tiny problem of having no space in the kitchen and stock the fridge with delicious treats.
