From a media release:
Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) announced today that its cooking show with an accessibility twist, Four Senses, is returning for a third season and will begin production this fall.
Four Senses is a unique cooking show produced by AMI in partnership with Varner Productions Limited that unites blind and sighted chefs in the kitchen. Hosts Christine Ha and Carl Heinrich are back for season three to share new recipes and experiences with a fresh group of celebrity guests. Each 30-minute show will also include nutrition guidelines for optimal eye health and accessibility tips and tools for independence in the kitchen.
Season three begins production in Toronto at Pie in the Sky Studios on October 2 and is being directed by Emmy and Genie award winner Arlene Hazzan Green. Celebrity chefs and guests will include: CHFI morning show host, Erin Davis, Laura Calder of French Chef at Home, Chef Corbin Tomaszeski from Restaurant Makeover, Claire Tansey of Chatelaine and the return of Frank Ferragine (aka Frankie Flowers).
New this year, the show takes to the road, heading out east to Prince Edward Island, back through rural Ontario and then west to Kelowna, British Columbia. Along the way, Christine and Carl will have the opportunity to catch lobsters and harvest oyster beds in PEI, visit with renowned Canadian Chef Michael Smith at the Inn at Bay Fortune, travel the Butter Tart Trail in Wellington North, herd sheep, and visit an accessible goat milk farm in the Okanagan.
In keeping with AMI’s mandate of making accessible media for all Canadians, Four Sensesfeatures embedded description, where hosts and guests describe their surroundings and actions for audience members who are blind or partially sighted, as well as closed captioning for those with hearing loss.
Season three of Four Senses will air on AMI-tv in January, 2016. Check your local provider or visit AMI.ca for the AMI channels in your area. The first two seasons of Four Senses are currently available to stream online with the accessible AMI-player.
