El Gourmet announces new original production

El Gourmet (AMC Networks International Latin America) announced the production of “Maestros del taco”, the new show that will travel through Mexico searching for the most authentic flavors of this traditional food. It will premiere during the last quarter of the year.
This new series reaches the channel after the success – both in Argentina and in the rest of Latin America- of “Maestros del asado”. The Mexican version will be hosted by the chef Alfonso “Poncho” Cadena. In this way, El Gourmet strengthens its offer of original content produced locally. Currently, the channel has 90% of its programming originally produced in Spanish and more than 250 hours of premieres per year.
“In ‘Maestros del taco’ we will venture into some of the flavors that represent the most authentic and distinguished of this symbol of Mexican gastronomy,” said Mandi Ciriza, Senior Vice President of Production and Programming. “In El Gourmet we want to make known the roots of this icon that has transcended borders and has arrived to the tables of people around the world,” the executive added.
