Great Tastes of Manitoba Returns with an all-new season and a brand new website!

Great Tastes of Manitoba, the television cooking series and its associated digital channels, are back for a 32nd season launching Saturday, September 11th. Great Tastes is a farm-to-table cooking series hosted by popular Winnipeg media personality, Dez Daniels. Each episode features local food experts who showcase the nutritious, affordable, delicious ingredients grown by Manitoba’s farmers. Viewers are also introduced to the farm families and agricultural communities behind the scenes. All the recipes featured on the show are triple tested for guaranteed results and developed with the home cook in mind.

This year, along with a brand new 13-episode series, ‘Great Tastes’ is launching a new website which is home to over 500 recipes, full episodes, and 26 unique stories direct from farms across the province. It is a virtual master class 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.

Also, new for Season 32 is an expanded partnership with Supper Central. The series is filmed on location in their Kenaston Commons kitchen and this year they are taking the opportunity to feature select ‘Great Tastes’ recipes as meal kits available for purchase in-store and online. Meal kits make trying a new recipe so much easier because all the ingredients are prepped and ready to cook.

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 (represented by Food Expert Tamara Sarkisian, RD) Manitoba Canola Growers AssociationManitoba ChickenDairy Farmers of ManitobaManitoba PorkManitoba Pulse & Soybean GrowersManitoba Turkey Producers.
