Zuku recommissions third series of award-winning Tales from the Bush Larder


East African triple-play service provider Zuku, part of African Media company Wananchi Group, announces that award-winning hybrid cooking and travel series, Tales from The Bush Larder, will return for a third series on the Zuku Entertainment channel 100 from 7th October at 8:30pm.

In series three of Tales from the Bush Larder (12x24), chef and restaurateur, Kiran Jethwa, takes viewers on a culinary tour of breath-taking locations throughout Zambia, Mozambique and South Africa. Audiences are introduced to fascinating local characters and their unique methods of harvesting and cooking popular and unusual delicacies from the local area.

Catherine Njari, Head of Programming, Zuku, Wananchi Group says; “We are extremely proud to present a third series of our award-winning, Kenyan produced series Tales from The Bush Larder.  The programme has been so well received - both domestically and outside of Kenya - and its success illustrates that there is a market for original, African produced content. We look forward to sharing another series full of awe-inspiring culinary and visual delights with audiences.”

Kiran’s adventures include foraging in the bushes of Zambia’s Central Province for wild mushrooms, nabbing a razor-toothed barracuda from the picturesque lakeshore of Lake Kariba, visiting a Mozambican escargot farm; bungee jumping beside Victoria Falls for the ferocious tiger fish and scaling South Africa’s Drakensberg Mountains for herbs and edible flowers.

The series is a co-production between Zuku and Fox and produced by a Kenyan company, Quite Bright Films. Earlier this year, Tales from The Bush-Larder won the ‘Best TV Show’ category at Kenya’s 5th Kalasha Film & Television Awards.
