Mai TV Launches New Food Show

Friday 24 February 2012


Mai TV and Ministry of Health have teamed up to launch a new food
show called Mai Kana featuring designer, cyclist and cook Dom Sansom.

On the back of a successful 55 issue run in MaiLIFE Magazine, Mai TV
decided last year to begin its own food show using local ingredients to
assist the Ministry of Health in Fiji’s battle against Non Communicable
Diseases (NCD’s)
“We are delighted MOH came into to support this. Other sponsors have
lined up with be part of this series because of the values it represents”,
said Mai TV General Manager David Hotchin.

The first episode of Mai Kana launches at 7.30pm this Sunday and
features Mai TV’s Manoa Rasigatale with Dom using Breadfruit, Chicken,
fresh fruit and vegetables to make a great healthy family dish with
pineapple, tea, rice and sugar.

“It sounds weird now, but wait till you see how we’ve combined all these
elements to get an awesome flavour that everyone in the family should
love”, added Sansom.

Without sponsors this series would not have been possible. In support of
Mai Kana include MOH, MH, Yoplait yoghurt, Crest Chicken, Joe’s Farm,
Orchid brand of paper towels, Protex Handwash, Fiji Gas and Punja’s.
Mai Kana will eventually team up with Manoa We Ni Yava as two great
local shows on Mai TV on Sunday nights.

“We are obviously happy to be presenting Fiji with its own cooking show.
With food shows dominating international TV screens, it was the right time
to do our own”, Hotchin said.

Mai TV is encouraging people with interesting recipes to email them to dom@samba.com.fj to get a chance to feature on Mai Kana.
