Commenting on the new programme, Jeremy said "With food related content being a staple in Malaysian's diet curiosity, we are very excited to bring to you a unique food programme such as '1 Jam Makan' which not only features the latest must visit eating places in Klang Valley, but also tailors the content to the urban and multiracial viewers of HyppTV. This is also the first programme on HyppSensasi produced by FriedChillies Food, the experts in food related content who have brought us the famous 'I Eat Nasi Lemak' and 'I Eat Burgers' event series in Kuala Lumpur. The collaboration with FriedChillies Network reflects our commitment in promoting local contents and supporting the growth of local content providers."
"The programme is also available on our mobile app offering, HyppTV Everywhere so you can watch it even when you're not at home, while on the move. This latest programme further enhances the existing exciting content line-up on our HyppSensasi channel, which is available as part of our HyppTV Aneka Pack offering at RM31.80 a month with no additional HD fee. The package also includes other local as well as Asian channels such as Dunia Sinema, MNC, Sony Max, and many more," he added.
A food exploration and information programme, '1 Jam Makan' is hosted by engaging foodies, Chef Eddie and Anita Woo. Chef Eddie is resident chef of FriedChillies Food Network with the hit cooking show, "Western Masak Sempoi" on Fried Chillies Food, HyppTV channel 838 while Anita Woo is a talented and endearing newscaster and radio DJ.
Chef Eddie when asked about the programme said, "I think I gained a few kilos throughout the shoot, but it was worthwhile. We got to discover not just new places, but also rediscovered some old favourites too, like gulai tempoyak ikan patin and banana leaf rice."
Anita Woo added, "It was great meeting so many interesting foodies along the way. Not only did we get to try excellent food, but it was really inspiring to know that Malaysia has a lot of passionate food entrepreneurs."
"We wanted to do a 'makan' show that is more than just walking around and eating. We wanted a show with more depth, something more visceral like going into the kitchen with the cooks and seeing the food in all its loving detail.We did extensive research for the show from tracking what food fans have followed on websites and social media, to going down to farms and into hot kitchens talking to food experts. As for the documentaries, we wanted to answer some questions Malaysian foodies have in their heads, for instance, how are free range chickens raised locally and how an artisanal baker makes his bread? We have always been curious to know more about what goes on behind the scenes of the food world and this show reflects that," Honey Ahmad, the Executive Producer of the programme said.
'1 Jam Makan' goes a step further by featuring mini documentaries detailing exceptionally interesting food entrepreneurs, expert cooks, chefs and their businesses. '1 Jam Makan' will take you exploring a freshwater fish enterprise, organic chicken and vegetable farms and a peek into the lives of artisanal food makers perfecting their craft from making ice cream, peanut butter and even local kuih. Not only that, the programme will also share some exclusive recipes! Viewers can learn how to make easy yet scrumptious dishes like a Roasted Leg of Lamb, Peanut Butter French Toast and even an express Kerabu Kacang Panjang.
In addition to '1 Jam Makan', the new drama series 'Jodoh Sebelah Pintu' starring Emma Maembong, Kamal Adli, Lia Natalia and Erwin Dawson also recently premiered on HyppSensasi in July. HyppSensasi, HyppTV's first own local entertainment channel is offered to HyppTV subscribers as part of HyppTV Aneka Pek at only RM31.80 per month or ala carte at RM6 per month.
