Jenny & Reza’s Fabulous Food Academy is Scripps Networks UK & EMEA’s third original series to go on Food Network for 2015 – other original commissions for 2015 include: Siba’s Table series 2 and Siba’s Table Fast Feasts.
Both chefs have already starred in successful shows on Food Network. Among the channel’s top ranking titles in South Africa over the last four years are two series hosted by Jenny Morris, and four featuring Reza Mahammad.
Friends from the moment they met, Jenny Morris and Reza Mahammad combined their extraordinary knowledge and passion for food by opening the doors of their Food Academy. Jenny and Reza taught six would be chefs, including us, to create a delicious feast, along the way passing on inspired hints, tips and techniques on how to cook like a professional, their aim is to demonstrate that with a little know how all of us can produce delicious food.
From the beautiful basics, to wonderful Mediterranean and Asian inspired dishes, all will be served up with Jenny and Reza’s unique humour and sheer joy of cooking at their Fabulous Food Academy.
My fiance Clint and I were the lucky couple to take part in the series under the theme couples who cant cook. The show aired during November and December 2015 and was aired on both the Food Network as well as BBC worldwide.
It was an amazing experience and we cooked and baked the most amazing range of dishes. This was also the first time I had eaten things such as duck and pork rolls etc. let alone making it. Although I am a self professed Gatsby girl I must admit it was delicious and definitely opened my pallet up to new things.
Jenny and Reza are both so much fun and a little naughty, the inappropriate jokes had us all in stitches. The show was both fun and informative and I had as good a time watching as I did eating and cooking.
Clint and I learnt so much and almost killed each other in the process, um... he almost burn the duck, but in all honesty I used up all our ingredients in one sauce so I think we are even, although I almost knocked him unconscious with a rolling pin, lol .
