Following the success of Jenny Morris Cooks Morocco, the new series which will air on DStv Channel 175, will explore the sun-kissed and delectable tastes of the Mediterranean, paying particular attention to French and Italian cuisine. Her mission is to reveal the full glory of authentic Mediterranean flavours enjoyed by so many the world over.

Jenny's journey along the French and Italian Rivieras starts in the west of France and follows her as she heads east along the coast, taking in some of the most famous parts of the world, Saint-Tropez, Monte Carlo, Portofino and Cinque Terre. Whilst there, Jenny will immerse herself in the luxury and tradition of the places we all know and love, while also discovering some of the less well-known treasures of the Riviera.

Nick Thorogood, SVP Content and Marketing, Scripps UK & EMEA said, "From Jenny's Cape Town cookery school she already has many Mediterranean influences. In this series I am pleased she will have the chance to travel to the Riviera and explore the cuisine in more detail."

Sue Walton, VP Commissioning and Original Content, Scripps UK & EMEA added, "Jenny's second series showcases one of South Africa's most loved chefs and her cuisine. Throughout the series, Jenny's journey through the Riviera's picturesque landscapes will be stacked with inspiration as she serves up menus inspired by the natural beauty and glamour of her surroundings."

Jenny Morris commented, "Once again Food Network is feeding my foodie soul. I'm delighted with the new commission and look forward to an incredible journey and fun experiences I can share with viewers throughout the world. Just love Food Network - it is entertainment with food at its heart!"
