GREAT TASTES OF MANITOBA’S 33rd SEASON BEGINS SEPTEMBER 10th

Great Tastes of Manitoba, the television cooking series, and its associated digital channels, are back for a 33rd season launching Saturday, September 10th.

Great Tastes is a farm-to-table cooking series hosted by popular Winnipeg media personality, Dez Daniels. Each episode features a local food expert who showcases the nutritious, affordable, delicious ingredients grown by Manitoba’s farmers. Viewers are also introduced to the farm families and agricultural professionals behind the scenes. All the recipes featured on the show are triple tested for guaranteed results and developed with the home cook in mind.

Manitoba Beef Producers episodes featuring six new recipes created by Food Expert Anna Borys are scheduled to air on October 22 and December 3.

After 32 years of filming in various locations around the city, Great Tastes of Manitoba finally has a permanent home! Earlier this summer filming took place at FRANK’s Kitchen, a brand new fully equipped kitchen and television studio built by FRANK Digital, the production company behind Manitoba’s most watched cooking series.

Along with a brand new 14-episode series, greattastesmb.ca is home to over 500 recipes, full episodes, and 40 unique stories direct from farms across the province. It is a virtual masterclass for anyone wanting to know more about how food is produced in Manitoba, and it gives consumers a glimpse into the lives of the farmers who work hard to bring these local ingredients to their tables.

Again, this year, select ‘Great Tastes‘ recipes will be available for purchase at Supper Central. Each week the local meal kit company helps bring a different recipe from the ‘Great Tastes’ archive to life, making it easier for viewers to try what they see on the show at home.

Established in 1991, this unprecedented television success story is uniquely Manitoban. The series is Manitoba’s most watched food show, and one of the longest running locally produced television programs in Canada. ‘Great Tastes‘ is produced by Frank Digital in partnership with Manitoba Agriculture & Resource Development, and Manitoba’s farmers and ranchers through their non-profit industry associations: Manitoba Beef Producers, Manitoba Canola Growers Association, Manitoba Chicken, Manitoba Crop Alliance, Dairy Farmers of Manitoba, Manitoba Pork, Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers, and Manitoba Turkey Producers.

Season 33 of Great Tastes of Manitoba airs on CTV Winnipeg, Saturday’s at 6:30pm CST starting September 10th. The nation-wide broadcast premiere is scheduled for Monday, September 12th at 7:30pm MT on The Rural Channel.
