Coxon cooks up ‘Feast’

Football legend Jomo Somo is first subject

JOHANNESBURG — Popular British TV chef Alan Coxon is continuing his love affair with South Africa, shooting a fourth TV cooking series in the country, “Coxon’s Sporting Feast.”

“I just love this country,” he said, “so any chance I get to shoot a series here, I just jump at it.”

“Coxon’s Sporting Feast” plays into South Africa’s fanatical sporting culture and will feature Coxon cooking and playing games with some of the country’s sporting legends.

It follows on the success of last year’s “Coxon’s Royal Feast,” in which Coxon cooked traditional meals with members of the tribal royal families of South Africa.

“Last year, I cooked meals with South African royalty like Zulu King Goodwill Zwelethini. Now it’s time to take on some sporting greats. I don’t just cook for them in their homes but join them in other, mainly sporting, activities.”

His first subject is football legend Jomo Somo, followed by world boxing champ Baby Jake Matlala, athlete Zola Budd, fastbowler Alan Donald, golfer Gary Player and Francois Pienaar, captain of the victorious 1995 World Cup winning team.

Coxon’s other previous shoots in South Africa were “Three Chefs in the Cape” for Carlton Food Network and “Tasting South Africa.”

“Coxon’s Sporting Feast” will start screening on satcaster Multichoice’s BBC Food channel in May.
