FOX Networks Group Asia (FNGA) announces the first season of Celebrity Chef: East Vs West – an original series documenting a fiery culinary competition between popular Hong Kong super star Nicholas Tse and renowned celebrity chef David Rocco.

In an original production to air on Fox Life, FOX+ and Nat Geo People in Asia Pacific and Tencent in China, the five-part series sees these renowned celebrity chefs travel to different cities around Asia where they will learn about the city, its food and culture, and prepare a local dish handpicked by a local Chef, putting their culinary skills to the test.

Representing the East is Nicholas Tse, a jack-of-all-trades known for singing, acting and now his culinary skills. On the opposing camp representing the West is David Rocco who brings his passion for food to millions of kitchens every day through his television program and his bestselling cookbooks where he shares the perfect combination of food, travel and a celebration of the sweet life.

Sam Gollestani, Head of Entertainment Production said, "Both David and Nic have a wealth of experience and expertise they can bring to the table, making this first season of Celebrity Chef the one to watch. The competition promises to be a memorable one as both chefs bring not only their extensive knowledge to our screens, but also their highly captivating on-air personalities and fascinating careers and back-stories. FNGA is very much looking forward to bringing these two charismatic chefs together and uncovering Asia's best dishes."

We expect drama, fireworks and the best of cooking from both East and West as these popular chefs battle it out in this culinary adventure and are looking forward to bringing it to screens across China in partnership FNGA in early 2018."
