I haven't seen the programme, but it sounds like a "me-too-on-a-tight-budget" - a one camera operation with stock shot fillers.
WE have some lovely cooking/travel programmes made is SA. If you ever have the change to watch "Ultimate Braai Master" competition with Justin Bonello, you'll see some interesting food (all cooked on open fires) in the most amazing venues across the country,beautifully filmed (to name just one of the series he has produced). Also Cooking with Chris Smit - some lovely dishes and awesome pics of the Western Cape - Paarl & Franschoek. He talks a bit funny but he's an Cape Afrikaaner. Because production costs are lower in SA you'll often find (if it's a good programme) that more has been spent on production, thus greater attention to detail.
