Discovery UK’s Food Network has commissioned London-based, Tin Roof-backed indie Blink Films to plate the food travelogue Tom Kerridge’s America.

The 10 x 30-minute culinary program documents the Michelin-starred chef on a cross country journey of America in search of the nation’s hidden food gems. Kerridge will travel from New England’s rocky coastlines to Northern California’s sun-kissed vineyards to sample the best-kept food secrets while also whipping up new recipes as he discovers the heart and soul of American food.

Tom Kerridge’s America is executive produced by Food Network UK’s Romy Page and Blink Films’ Dan Chambers, Andra Heritage and Sarah Siese. The series producer is Simon Arnold. It was ordered by Clare Laycock, VP head of lifestyle and entertainment brands, and commissioned by Charlotte Reid, senior director of production and development.

The series has been made with funding support from American Tourist Boards and Hat Trick International, which is distributing the series

“Tom has the most delightful way of getting all the people he meets in America to open up to him and to reveal the secrets of their cooking. And, as a culinary genius, he’s able to take all he’s learnt in each place, to create his own really special dishes. He’s got me loving American food,”said Chambers, co-founder and creative director of Blink Films, in a statement.
