Matt Moran to host second season of Paddock to Plate

Chef and restaurateur Matt Moran will host a second season of Paddock to Plate on Foxtel’s LifeStyle Channel, the subscription TV company has confirmed.

The announcement:

Foxtel today announced it had re-signed premier chef and restaurateur, Matt Moran, to host a second season of the The LifeStyle Channel’s new local production, Paddock to Plate.

The first series – nominated in the 12th annual ASTRA Awards for Most Outstanding Lifestyle Program – was met with rave reviews in both the food and media industries and regularly ranked among the top 2 programs in its timeslot for subscription television, as Matt left his chefs whites in the kitchen and embarked on a road trip to meet the best growers, producers and farmers along the East Coast of Australia.

The second season of Paddock to Plate will take Matt to rural parts of South Australia and Western Australia to visit more artisan producers.

General Manager of The LifeStyle Channels and Foxtel’s Head of Production, Duane Hatherly, said: “Matt Moran is such a naturally charismatic individual and his genuine passion for the work of the local framers and producers created some beautiful moments in the first series.

“Stunning Australian backdrops and some very tempting recipes rounded out a programme that we couldn’t have been happier with. So, we at LifeStyle and Foxtel, are thrilled to be able to continue with Matt on his culinary journey across the country in another season.”

Matt Moran said: “The first season of Paddock to Plate was such an inspiring journey of discovery for me, but I feel like we only just scratched the surface on showcasing some of the amazing produce and producers that this country has to offer.

“It’s really exciting to be venturing further afield to some lesser known regions of South Australia and WA – the changing seasons and climates are sure to offer up some fantastic and unique produce and I’m looking forward to meeting their passionate producers. I can’t wait to get out, on the road, and cooking again.”

Paddock to Plate is produced by ITV Studios Australia, exclusively for Foxtel’s The LifeStyle Channel. Production on the second season will commence in the coming months.
