Cape Town – The surfer, Sydney-born lifeguard, former MasterChef Australia contestant and now celebrity chef Hayden Quinn is set for his new travelogue food show, Hayden Quinn South Africa, which will start on SABC3 on Monday 14 July at 21:30.

In 13 episodes he visits Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Paternoster, Franschhoek, Hermanus, Knysna, Oudtshoorn, the Northern Cape, Johannesburg, Lesotho, the Midlands, Zululand and Durban.

In Hayden Quinn South Africa he discovers local flavours in various culinary capers, take part in various action adventures and follows the journey of South African produce from farm to the fork.

Viewers will see him for instance surfing the cold waters of the Western Cape to zip lining through the Tsitsikamma tree tops and walking with rhinos in Zululand.

Local cooks, chefs and foodies teach him how to cook and prepare a range of local dishes and give him a taste of the melting pot of the South African palette.

He makes a tuna sashimi atop Table Mountain, cooks a potjie amidst a desert thunderstorm, shucks Knysna oysters and makes ice-cream in the fields of the KwaZulu-Natal midlands.

Hayden Quinn South Africa was filmed since February in and around South Africa; he visited South Africa previously and returned for the filming of the series.

The travelogue series is also taking a look at sustainability issues in and around South Africa and things like farming and environmental conservation.
