Geoffrey Murray joins Justin Bonello on “Cooked – Out of the Frying Pan”

Send to Kindle

Geoffrey & JustinThis month Zachary’s Executive Chef, Geoffrey Murray, will appear in an episode of Season IV’s Cooked with Justin Bonello on DStv’s BBC Lifestyle channel.

The episode shows Geoffrey Murray and his team with Justin in Zachary’s kitchen at Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa in Knysna, preparing and cooking some of the dishes from Zachary’s menu, including seed loaf, green tomato relish, octopus carpaccio and salami.

The focus of the series is to show how Justin, who has made his name cooking in the outdoors, copes with working in a formal kitchen.

After three seasons of Cooked, and having published the first Cooked in Africa cookbook, Justin will be seen cooking in top haute-cuisine styled eateries and family restaurants where he attempts to master or at least gain insight into a smorgasbord of cooking styles from around the globe.

Says Justin: “I’m not a chef, I´m just an ordinary guy with a passion for life, food, the great outdoors and being with people I really like. I started doing Cooked with the thought, why not do a programme that combines all of these and now here I am working alongside these amazing chefs in Cooked season IV”.

Geoffrey Murray said that having Justin in his kitchen was an absolute pleasure.  “He really enjoys food, always had lots of questions and wasn’t afraid to jump right in. With his personality and passion for food I can’t imagine that there are many places that he wouldn’t fit in.”

This exciting new series sees Justin visiting Zachary’s at Pezula and another 12 professional kitchens, sharing centre stage with the chefs and learning their secrets.

Cooked Season IV – Out of the Frying Pan premiers on BBC Lifestyle from 1 October 2010 at 8.25pm!
