Portfolio Signs Up for New Cooking Series


TORONTO: Portfolio Entertainment is to executive produce and distribute a new half-hour cooking series, Raider of the Spice Rack, co-produced by Free Form Productions and SILO Entertainment.

The series features Kevin Brauch, host of The Thirsty Traveler and floor reporter on Iron Chef America. Brauch is the "Spice Raider." The 26-episode series follows him as he discovers local spices from around the world, learning about their mythological, legendary and tumultuous history.

“We’ve had tremendous success with our culinary catalogue and Raider of the Spice Rack was developed in response to specific requests from our international buyers. Kevin Brauch’s big personality could make even salt seem exotic!” said Joy Rosen, co-president of Portfolio Entertainment.

“Portfolio has an outstanding track record both as executive producers and as distributors of great food series, and for that reason we’re thrilled that Raider of the Spice Rack is a newest addition to their expanding catalogue,” commented Andréa Fehsenfeld, the producer for Free Form Productions.

“It’s a great opportunity to be working with Portfolio Entertainment,” added Mel D’Souza of SILO Entertainment. “Portfolio brings a wide reaching distribution network, which will bring the Raider of the Spice Rack to both television and digital content platforms around the world.”
