Singapore-based Bomanbridge Media announced the sale of 26 episodes of the English-language finished version of Chef In Your Ear to Indian broadcaster AETV 18.
Chef In Your Ear is a cooking competition format in which two professional chefs work with two novice cooks to try and deliver restaurant-quality dishes. The amateurs wear ear-pieces, taking instructions from a chef whom they have been paired with, and who is locked away in a booth, unable to smell or taste the food.
“Chef In Your Ear is one of those very unique shows that is so fun, yet full of drama as well as instructive. India has a rich food culture and the show is sure to be a hit on AETN 18. Bomanbridge is pleased to represent Chef In Your Ear in the Asia Pacific and we hope to soon announce Asian formatted versions in the near future,” said Sonia Fleck, Bomanbridge’s CEO, in a statement.
Chef In Your Ear originally aired on both Food Network Canada (English language) as well as on Radio-Canada (French Language). It was produced by HLP+ Partners and The Format People; and developed by famed Canadian chef Ricardo Larrivée, Michel Rodrigue and Henry Less with assistance from Justin Scroggie who originally conceived the format. Food Network Canada announced the commission for a second season.
Chef In Your Ear recently completed its first season on France 2, under the title Un Chef A L’Oreille.
