Foodnap gives you the best recipes cooked by the best chefs around the world: moms! Foodnap will take you to some of the most interesting countries in the world and give you the very best local recipes cooked by the most experienced chefs, moms who have been handed down delicious traditional recipes for generations. Foodnap is a new kind of cooking show, we will be visiting these moms own kitchens and get local recipes from every corner in the world.
Foodnap was conceived by our producer’s passion for great food. Babak always thought that cooking shows presented difficult recipes by culinary chefs that are hard to follow. He wanted to see a cooking show with real food, cooked by real chefs – moms that have been cooking for their families for years! And wherever they were around the world, he would find them. He decided to take this notion to the next level by sharing the idea during a hike with his friend (and now host) Steffany. Steffany also loves good food, but can’t cook for her life! She loves learning how others cook delicious home made meals. They managed to put a crew of professionals together and got some sponsors to pay for their trips around the globe and have been to several different parts of the world exploring unique approaches to cooking.
