Each explains why a particular location gets their vote and share their insights and observations. The series is produced by Outline Productions.
“We’re used to visiting other countries on screen and seeing local chefs at work, but hearing from established food experts about where they like to eat on their travels and why gives viewers a whole new perspective – as well as some brilliant recommendations”, said DRG’s Executive Vice-President of Sales Elin Thomas. “This beautifully filmed series is the ultimate combination of travel and good food and we are delighted that these early sales endorse this as a recipe for success.”
