Bio Profile / Wiki Information

Introduction :

  • As a world-renowned chef and journalist, Maeve O’Meara is known best for being the host of the Australian cooking show Food Safari.

Personal Life & Family Background :

  • One of Maeve’s earliest childhood memories is of her kicking a nun on her first day of grammar school. The woman had “emerged from the shadows” and the terrified O’Meara lashed out immediately.
  • The thrill of that danger stood with her, however, and when she got a bit earlier, she decided she wanted to be a stuntwoman.
  • Growing up in Sydney, Maeve often had plenty of room to get into dangerous antics with her younger brother, Matt, and would do so on a regular basis. It wasn’t until her mother introduced soy sauce into their household that her interests began to change from jumping off of walls and trees to cooking.
  • Both her mother and father had Irish ancestry, and the food they cooked for their children reflected this. Once her mother got ahold of soy sauce, she began cooking a sort of Irish stir-fry. That was the moment O’Meara realised food too could be interesting.
  • Nationality : Australian

Marriage & Kids :

  • After settling into her desired career, Maeve met Ben Stack in 1993. He would go on to become her first husband and father to her three children.
  • In 1995, she gave birth to her only son, Connor. Two years later, she gave birth to her middle child – daughter Kitty. In 1999, she gave birth to her youngest daughter, Carli.
  • After their children were born, the couple divorced, although they still maintain an amicable relationship.
  • Her son now has a child of his own, a young girl named Arabella, making Maeve a grandma.
  • Currently, Maeve is dating Toufic Charabati, a Lebanese man who has been her colleague and friend for a long time.

Professional Life, Salary & Net Worth :

  • Maeve began her career a year after she graduated from college with an arts degree. Unsure of the exact path she wanted to take, she travelled for a year and found enjoyment in the spontaneity of each day. This led her to journalism.
  • Her work began with traditional news programs such as The Carleton-Walsh Report. In 1990, she moved to Australia network SBS’s station called Dateline, which had a strong emphasis on food. There, she rekindled her love of the culinary world.
  • After several years working for SBS, she launched her company Gourmet Safari, an Australian tour company that would allow people to experience the many different cuisines Australia offers.
  • Following the success of her company, SBS created a show centred around the idea and called it Food Safari. Hosted by O’Meara, each episode takes viewers on a journey to a different culinary scene in Australia. Some episodes are based on culture, while some are based on the cooking method, such as the use of an open flame or water.
  • Maeve also started hosting the show’s sixth season, beginning October 12, 2017.

  1. Maeve – Loved your engaging talk at the Bendigo Writers. Was very tempted to buy your new book for my lady friend who I bought your earlier one. Whoever since she doesn’t entertain as much now and has internal complications from food reaction it would only make her longing. She whoever is going later this year to Japan with her sister to do the food experience.
    When are you doing a Melbourne 1 day or weekender. And how much do they go for would be looking for two seats for her and either a close girlfriend or one of her daughters
