British digital broadcaster UKTV has commissioned Valentine Warner’s Scandinavian Cookbook, a ten part series following the chef as he travels across Scandinavia.
The 10x30mins series will air on the Good Food channel and will be produced by Racebox Media and will see Warner travel across Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden to unearth hidden food gems.
The series will launch in the fourth quarter of 2013 and was commissioned by UKTV’s senior commissioning editor Catherine Catton.
Catton said: “We’re delighted to be working with Rockabox Media on this series. Valentine Warner’s Scandinavian Cookbook is a great opportunity to bring Scandinavian cooking and ingredients to the forefront of modern cuisine and showcase Valentine’s diverse cookery skills.”
Good Food general manager Clare Laycock adds: “This is an exciting new commission for Good Food. Scandinavian cuisine is fast becoming a big new trend for UK foodies and Valentine – a firm favourite with the Good Food audience – is the perfect person to help us explore it. The series will provide our viewers with the opportunity to experience how to make mouth-watering dishes set against a magnificent Nordic backdrop.”
