â€œWe are taking Anna back into her own kitchen as we wanted viewers to spend even more time in the comfort of her country home kitchen for season three,â€ says Les Tomlin, President & CEO of Peace Point Entertainment Group. â€œWe are also excited to launch Peace Point’s first cook book this month. It’s a collaboration with Whitecap publishing for a recipe book taken from previous seasons called Fresh with Anna Olson: Seasonally Inspired Recipes to Share with Family and Friends, that we expect will become an international best seller considering her growing global appeal.â€
As always, Anna creates simple and delicious recipes using her mantra â€œeat fresh, eat localâ€, but this season, Anna invites viewers to learn even more of her personal anecdotes, food insights, and valuable cooking tips.
Each episode Anna prepares up to four scrumptious easy-to-follow recipes. Themes this season range from Anna’s tribute to her Eastern European roots in â€œThank You Grandmaâ€ to â€œCooking For My Sweetieâ€ inspired by the homemade favourites her husband Michael loves. Anna has some fun with her â€œGetting Cheesyâ€ episode and she seduces the viewers with a â€œFill the House With Fragranceâ€ theme. Anna is a chef who truly lives food! No matter what she is doing…working in her restaurant, writing cookbooks, catering an event or cooking on TV she is excited by fresh ingredients. This season features recipes that incorporate fresh foods no matter where you live or what the season.
