Food Network star Paul Hollywood to film in South Africa
Food Network commissions Paul Hollywood City Bakes to film in Cape Town for series two on Food Network DStv Channel 175
In the second series of Paul Hollywood City Bakes the renowned British baker explores the baking heritage of cities around the world, uncovering family recipes, hotel delicacies and local favourites, before creating his own city bake inspired by the place. As well as Cape Town, Paul will also visit Oslo, Antwerp, Reykjavik, Palermo, Nicosia, Amman, Dublin, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The first series premiered on Food Network in September 2016, and to accommodate the audience demand for all things Paul Hollywood, the new series has been extended from 30 to 60 minutes.
“South Africa has stunning landscapes, lovely local produce, and a dynamic baking scene. It was an obvious choice to take Paul to Cape Town for series two,” said Kevin Dickie, Senior Vice President, Channels Group, Scripps Networks Interactive, UK & EMEA. “We are delighted to welcome Paul back to Food Network and even more so to take him to South Africa.”
Paul Hollywood City Bakes is the latest Food Network show to showcase Cape Town. Cape Town is also the location for the third series of Siba’s Table which is filming in November this year.
