MKR chef Manu Feildel to front Brittany series

Channel Seven will launch a two-part series with My Kitchen Rules chef Manu Feildel in which he travels back to his home province in Brittany.

The announcement:

In this new series, Manu Feildel takes us home to the French province of Brittany to share the food, memories and adventures of his France.

Channel Seven today announced MY FRANCE WITH MANU, an upcoming two-part series from celebrity chef and popular My Kitchen Rules host and judge, Manu Feildel.

Manu left France when he was 18-years-old to conquer the world as a chef. Now he returns to the place he grew up to see how much it’s changed, to reconnect with friends, to catch up with family and to rediscover himself.

Manu tells us about growing up in a family of chefs and his desire to break tradition by joining the circus. We visit the places that inspired him and taste the gastronomic delights that evoke these memories. He tries the jobs he could have done if he had stayed behind and returns to the Big Top to put his circus skills to the test.

Manu makes his way from the north of Brittany and south down the Atlantic coast by seaplane, sand yacht, canoe, boat, donkey, vintage Renault and even a mechanical elephant. Along the way he meets the locals and catches up with family and friends, while sharing some of his favourite recipes.

More than a cooking show, more than a travelogue, MY FRANCE WITH MANU is a heartwarming journey of discovery about the man in Manu.

MY FRANCE WITH MANU is a Seven Production. Paul Melville is Executive Producer.

The series will premiere next month on Seven.
