Five South Africans and five Chinese tell their food stories in the documentary series Relish.

Relish, a 10-episode TV documentary telling Chinese and South African food stories, will be broadcast this August to help viewers understand the culinary exchanges between their countries.

Produced by China Plus, the English brand of China Radio International, Relish profiles five South Africans living or travelling in China and five Chinese residents in South Africa.

One of the main characters of the series is Zola Nene, a well-known TV chef and gourmet writer in South Africa, who is ready to compare Chinese dumplings and those made by Zulus. Another is Emma Chen, a Chinese woman who brought famous Beijing roast duck to Johannesburg and made the delicacy appeal to South African customers.

The documentary will be aired at 21h15 from 18 to 27 August 2017 (with a rerun the next morning at 11h30) on CNBC Africa, which can be viewed in South Africa and most other African countries.

A two-minute version of the 10 episodes will be made available on the China Plus News accounts on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube at the same time.

The rainbow nation of South Africa is gaining in popularity every year in China, with more and more Chinese tourists, students and businesses seeing it as a destination for travel, studies and investment. The same is true for China in the eyes of South Africans. There is a widespread thirst among Chinese and South Africans to learn about each other. As a start, they can get to know each other through the all-too- important topic of food.

Relish focuses on the exchange of culinary delights, but viewers also get a sense of the fusion between the two cultures as reflected in peoples lives, education, tourism resources, business opportunities and so forth.
