MUMBAI: FOX Life, India’s leading travel and lifestyle channel, is bringing a dream love story ‘When Patrick met Kylie' to your television sets starting 4 August, Monday to Friday 8:00 PM onwards. ‘When Patrick met Kylie' is an endearing love story of two food enthusiasts Kylie Flavell, a magazine editor and Patrick Drake, an ex-lawyer turned chef, who leave everything to pursue their passion for Italian cuisine and end up falling in love on this journey.
This was a match truly made in heaven. Kylie’s passion for Italy and cooking inspired her to leave a lucrative job as a food, business and lifestyle journalist in Australia and move to Rome. Her love for food led her to Patrick, who she contacted in London after trying a recipe on his video blog. Patrick, having also abandoned his law career for one in food, agreed to join Kylie on her culinary adventure. The show follows Patrick and Kylie on their extraordinary journey across the Italian peninsula, in which the two food experts travel far and wide to understand the secrets and joys of this ancient and pleasure-loving culture. From big cities to small villages, Michelin star restaurants to family-run trattorias, Kylie is Patrick’s guide to the delights of Italy and its food. At the end of each episode, their challenge is to prepare a homemade meal for their new local friends using what they’ve learned, tasted and sometimes even stolen!
Speaking on the occasion, Debarpita Banerjee, VP – Marketing & Communication at National Geographic Channel (NGC) and Fox International Channels said “The channel recently re-vamped itself from FOX Traveller to FOX Life. At the core we have always believed to bring alive the journey and the purpose behind the travel and not just the destination, in all our shows. When Patrick Met Kylie is another beautiful example of this. For the first time ever, on Indian television, we are proud to present the sub -genre of travel-romance are confident that our viewers will like this flavor as well”
Bustling with excitement Kylie Flavell said “Our show has been launched in over 60 countries now but we were most excited about the launch in India. Especially since Indian people are so passionate and we always felt like there was a little bit of a Bollywood love story wrapped up in our series. We had a lot of fun creating this series. We danced across the town square after a night at the opera in Jesi, played polo in Tuscany and speeded around the island of Ponza in a vintage sports car. Each episode was an adventure of a lifetime. We are so glad to share these adventures with the Indian audiences. We can't wait to meet our fans, eat some wonderful Indian food and maybe even try out a few new dance moves!"
Adding to this, Patrick Drake exclaimed “I am really excited about the show. Both Kylie and I are thankful to FOX Life for making our show available to the Indian viewers. We have always been fascinated by India’s rich cultural heritage and we hope that the Indian audiences will enjoy the show as much as we have loved creating it”
Watch the food lovers only on FOX Life starting 4th August, Monday to Friday 8:00 PM onwards
