Cape Town chef Neill Anthony will be hitting our TV screens on the 26th of January with a second season of his show, Private Chef. Airing on Food Network (DStv Channel 175) on Thursdays at 20h00, the unscripted show is a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a private chef in Cape Town.

There will be 13 episodes in the season, and celebrities visited include Arno Carstens, Vanessa Haywood and Carol Bouwer.
