Glassbox Television’s Travel+ Escape channel has picked up the Canadian broadcast rights for Gourmet Escapes, a culinary show hosted by celebrity chef Massimo Capra.

Premiering on November 2 at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, the destination cooking show sends Capra to Switzerland, San Diego and his hometown of Cremona, Italy to partner with local chefs and visit with local growers and markets.

Gourmet Escapes is a TGTV production and is distributed by Filmoption International in Canada and parts of Europe and Asia, Cargo Film & Releasing in the U.S., Bender Media Services in Latin America and Eaton Films in the UK and parts of Europe.

“Even at the top of his game, Massimo still loves nothing more than to get hands on and learn a thing or two,” said Frank Greco, executive producer and director of Gourmet Escapes. “This, for him, has made the experience truly a Gourmet Escape.”
