The half-hour weekly program on TVWAN showcases PNG’s dynamic food diversity.
Asi said particularly after the rebirth, the cook show has picked up really well, with 18 episodes.
This outcome is credited to the contributors of the show, such as the commonly known “Uncle Tony” and those who have participated in the segment “cooking with everyday people”.
The team is now shooting its second season, which is anticipated to be even bigger.
“We are planning to take Haus Cook to other provinces and especially in hotels, so when people go out for holidays, they know what to expect at these destinations, food-wise,” said Asi.
The Haus Cook team is currently in talks of going to Nusa in New Ireland, and Alotau in Milne Bay Province.
There are also plans to travel to the Gulf Province, bringing Uncle Tony along, who specialises in seafood.
Asi said there are new segments included this season, one of which will be dedicated to baking alone.
“So we are bringing a pastry chef on board. We will continue with traditional cooking and interviews with small catering businesses/SMEs, basically to encourage viewers to do something.
“This season, we will also focus on food safety and food handling as well,” she said.
Season two will only have 13 episodes. It’s set to air on November 9, 7pm.
