Bomanbridge sells ‘Delicacy Hunter: On The Silk Road’ to Nat Geo People Asia

MUMBAI: Bomanbridge Media, a Singapore-based content distribution and production agency, has licenced a deal to see ‘Delicacy Hunter: On The Silk Road’ transmitted on National Geographic Asia. The 6 x 30’ series will be airing on National Geographic People from this December 2018 as a special holiday event.

Chef Jamie’s success now leads to further exciting news with the recently announced Season 2 launch of the ‘Delicacy Hunter’ as Jamie travels in China and abroad. From one of China’s most remote regions in Gansu to the very heart of Europe in Germany, Jamie will not only get to meet and learn from Yu Gu and the Tibetan minorities but also discover how the extensive exchange network once created by commerce is still very much alive today through food exchange.

He will get to taste local specialties and witness how the Chinese and Europeans are benefitting from centuries-old culinary traditions along his travels to Europe’s gastronomic capital in Rome. Reversing the trails set by Marco Polo, Jamie is ready to bring back special recipes he’s encountered throughout his journey and to finally share them across the table with his Chinese friends.

This six-part series produced by IFA Media follows British Chef Jamie Bilbow on a gastronomic adventure to find Chinese food with an intricate link to the Silk Road, the most important overland trade route in China’s history, acting as the main corridor between the East and West for centuries.

Both seasons are produced by IFA Media and distributed internationally by Bomanbridge Media.

“I am thrilled that Chef Jamie offers a completely local and engaging experience using his great people and food skills, (not to mention his perfect mandarin) while on the Silk Road. His style of interaction with those he meets is a really fresh approach to the lifestyle productions currently on air,” said Bomanbridge Media CEO Sonia Fleck.
