The Hostess is a brand new 13 episode cooking and lifestyle reality series for food and entertainment connoisseurs alike. This show, presented by Lorna Maseko and produced by Greyscale Productions, is a deliciously decadent celebration of dining and creative entertaining and will premiere Tuesdays from 4th April at 20:30 on SABC 3.
In this hybrid cooking and entertainment show, we see a different side to Ballet Dancer and TV Presenter, Lorna Maseko as she creates bespoke culinary and experiential moments for ordinary South Africans, celebrities and captains of industry. She takes us behind the scenes with her as she brings our guests’ dream events to life.
“I love feeding and entertaining guests, and experimenting with new recipes and ingredients. It’s a great feeling knowing you’ve filled someone’s tummy”, shared Lorna.
In each episode Lorna will be tasked with the challenge of stepping in and setting up the featured guest’s soiree and help them host the perfect event. From kiddies’ birthday parties and themed dinners to a romantic night in, no event is too big or small for our expert entertainer. Our host brings both her skills as a chef and an event planner to the occasion by constructing and executing a menu and theme to meet the requirements of each guest, giving them an event to remember.
Even the most seasoned party planners will attest that event planning is not an exact science, which will make this a show full of drama and unexpected turns of events in the lead up to the perfect occasion.
“Cooking shows are arguably one of the most notable formats to grace our screens over the past decade; this is true both locally and internationally. With The Hostess, we wanted to offer the viewers’ something tried and tested but that will also showcase our South African flair for entertaining, hence the eventing aspect to each episode”, stated Charles Watson, Executive Producer, Greyscale Productions.
Sunay Grant, Executive Producer, Greyscale Productions stated that ultimately the show aims to impart creative entertaining tips on design, décor and food preparation, all centred around tabling a great meal for those close to one’s heart. “From baby showers to surprise birthday do’s for bae, you will see it all on The Hostess”, she added.
