Dave Billsborrow (you know, that guy from that show) has recently coupled up with stunning Sydney florist Sarah-Mae Amey. With their first Valentine's Day approaching, Dave needed some serious help in the romance department. Enter comedian/wingman Sam Mac.

Over five episodes, we'll follow their adventures together as Dave learns the art of chocolate making, designs a pair of high heels that would make Cinderella blush, and learns how to whip up a delicious Italian feast - without a jar of Dolmio in sight.


Take a down-to-earth Aussie bloke, add comedian & all round good bloke Sam Mac & you've got Valentine's Day magic.


Can an Aussie bloke design the ultimate pair of high heels? In this episode, Dave turns from plumber to cobbler on our Design Your Own Heels experience.

Goodbye discounted service station treats, hello gourmet handmade delights. Dave's girlfriend Sarah has a sweet tooth, so we sent him to a chocolate making workshop just in time for Feb 14 - better (choco)late than never!

Designed for the inquisitive and creative chocoholic, you can find out how real chocolate is made and experience the pleasure of making your own.

Dave's host and cooking teacher was Luciana Sampogna, a graduate from the famous Simili Sisters' school in Bologna. Gourmet Traveller defined Luciana’s cooking school as ‘teaching the Simili Sisters' recipes as well as following their philosophy of introducing the time-honoured traditions of regional Italian cooking to a new generation’. Like Dave, you will learn that Italian food is not about techniques but carefully balancing ingredients, giving you the opportunity to discover the real flavour of Italian cuisine.
