SENTI CHI MANGIA launches in Italy, daily for 7 weeks, watch trailer here

Global format experts The Format People are pleased to announce their hit cooking reality format CHEF IN YOUR EAR has been adapted yet another territory.

Following deals by distributor Warner Bros International TV Production, a full studio adaptation of the format, locally titled SENTI CHI MANGIA, launched on Italian channel La7 on Monday 14 September.

Presented by Bake Off host Benedetta Parodi, it runs for 35 episodes daily in access-primetime across 7 weeks.

Reviews are in: "A different way of approaching the kitchen suitable for every time slot. It can be said that all the ingredients are in the right place: above all Benedetta Parodi who plays the role of hostess, but is never intrusive. Everything looks promising, a really nice shot by La7”.

Chef In Your Ear sees two top chefs competing to deliver a restaurant quality dish – by remote control! The two Chefs are sealed in booths, unable to touch, taste or smell the food, and must each direct a complete kitchen novice via an earpiece to do all the preparation, cooking and plating, before the final dishes are judged by a food critic.

In a new twist, Benedetta prepares an extra dish after the game is over, using the left-overs!

The format has been produced to date in Canada (French and English), Belgium, Holland, France, Germany, Mexico, Mongolia, South Korea, and Brazil.
