Britain’s favourite baker Paul Hollywood is venturing off across the globe on a journey of discovery as he samples the finest recipes that have shaped the culture and heritage of some of the world’s biggest and most exciting cities, and his next stop? South Africa!
The Mother City will feature in the second series of award-winning Paul Hollywood City Bakes to be filmed in Cape Town in February 2017, with the show set to premiere on Food Network, DStv Channel 175 in May 2017.
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 Bergen, Antwerp, Reykjavik, Palermo, Nicosia, 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 2,” 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.”
“I’m looking forward to returning to Food Network for what promises to be another great series of Paul Hollywood City Bakes,” said Paul Hollywood. “When asked if I wanted to visit South Africa it was a very easy yes! There are many bakes on my list to try, but I am particularly looking forward to sampling mosbolletjies, soetkoekies and traditional koeksisters.”
