A congrats is in order Siba Mtongana– Siba’s Table just got picked up for a third season!
Following the huge global success of the first two series of Siba’s Table, Food Network has now green lit a third series. Starring Siba Mtongana, Siba’s Table s3 (10×30’) builds on the popular format of Siba’s Table and Siba’s Table s2 with Mtongana bringing her culinary flair and on-screen charisma to viewers across the region. Produced by North Pacific, Siba’s Table was the company’s first international production to air in the US. The show will debut later on in the year.
In Siba’s Table s3, Siba once again creates and serves an irresistible range of dishes for friends and family. Each episode will recreate a chapter of her Cape Town life, as she draws on influences from both her childhood and unique experiences as a food editor. The series will also feature vibrant local artisan producers and showcases the local, cutting edge restaurant scene.
Siba says she is thrilled and can’t wait for filming to start. “This is great news for me, but more so for my beloved country, South Africa, as Cape Town is home to South Africa’s most vibrant food scene and reflects the rich cultural diversity of our rainbow nation”
Phillip Luff, MD Scripps UK & EMEA, says Siba’s Table exceeded all expectations. “Internationally, the series proved to be one of our most successful shows and we can’t wait to bring the third series of ‘Siba’s Table’ to all our food lovers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.”
