New Season of 'Paul & Nick's Big Food Trip' Set to Debut on UTV
16 Apr 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Top chefs Paul Rankin and Nick Nairn return to UTV with the sixth series of their show. ‘Paul and Nick’s Big Food Trip New Zealand’ following the trail of the Ulster Scots who travelled and settled in New Zealand.

The Waddell Media production is funded by the Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund, and Northern Ireland Screen, and is the sixth series of the show.

The series sees top chefs visit New Zealand to cook for descendants of George Vesey Stewart. Originally from Tyrone, Stewart was responsible for enticing dozens of Ulster families to immigrate to New Zealand in the 1870s, building a community around the small town of Katikati.

Their journey takes them the length of the country, from the tropical climate of Auckland in the north, to the more mountainous climes of Dunedin and Queenstown in the south.

Jannine Waddell, Managing Director Waddell Media said: “This is the sixth series of Food Trip and I believe it’s the strongest yet. New Zealand is a great place to visit, packed with great food produce and with strong ties to Scotland and Ulster. I’m sure the mix of fascinating history and fabulous cooking from the ever watchable Paul and Nick will go down a storm.

Terry Brennan, Head of News and Programmes, UTV said: “Paul and Nick’s Big Food Trips are hugely popular with our audience, and this New Zealand trip will not disappoint. In this series they visit both North and South islands, meeting amazing food producers and cooking special meals for some Ulster-Scots descendants which our viewers are sure to enjoy.”

Other upcoming projects for Waddell include the new season of the ‘Grand Tour’ with Francis Brennan on RTE One.

The new series starts on UTV Ulster Monday, April 16the at 8pm.
