SAT.1 in Germany has recommissioned hit cooking competition The Taste, produced by Redseven Entertainment, for an eighth season. The new season goes into production in late May, for a Fall 2020 premiere.

The new season will see model and author Angelina Kirsch take over presenting duties.

Contestants must compete for the judges’ approval based on the blind taste of a single spoonful of food, for the chance to win €50,000 and their own cookbook.

The Taste is one of SAT.1’s highest-rated shows, with an average audience of 1.34m viewers per show (E 14+).

The format was originally created and produced by Kinetic Content for ABC (US), and has now been licensed by Red Arrow Studios International to over 40 territories worldwide.
