Cape Town – Pregnant chef Siba Mtongana will keep cooking – the 27-year-old food editor has become the second South African chef to get her own as-yet-untitled locally commissioned cooking show on the Food Network (DStv channel 185).

Mtongana, who is pregnant with her first child, was the star of Cooking with Siba on M-Net's Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 107) and has now signed with the Food Network for a new cooking show which will be seen in 85 countries throughout Africa, Europe and the Middle East.

Her show follows on the heels of Jenny Morris, the first South African chef to sign with the Food Network and whose Jenny Morris Cooks Morocco is currently on the channel on Mondays at 20:10.

'Fun and entertaining'

"Food Network is always on the look-out for fresh new talent in South Africa and Siba certainly fits the bill," says Nick Thorogood, the senior vice president of content and marketing who said the channel is delighted to have Mtongana on board.

"She's dynamic, passionate about food and audiences love her – everything that's important to the Food Network brand."

The channel will be conceptualising with Mtongana over the course of the next few months to create her show, saying it wants to "deliver a fun and entertaining series on the Food Network that will inspire and delight foodies and non-foodies alike."

Filming of Mtongana's new cooking show will start in early 2013, after she has given birth.
