Andreas Viestad and artist Gary Spetz freshen up Create in August
New Scandinavian Cooking returns with its latest season on Aug. 29. Shot entirely on location, the series offers a rich visual tour of Nordic cuisine, culture and history. Award-winning TV host, food journalist and cookbook author Andreas Viestad treats viewers to an eye-opening voyage through his native Norway, where he creates tantalizing recipes in front of stunning natural backdrops. In several episodes, two guest chefs — Sara La Fountain and Claus Meyer — join Andreas on his culinary adventures through Finland and Denmark.
In addition, award-winning artist Gary Spetz returns on Aug. 22 to demonstrate his innovative watercolor painting techniques in his latest series Gary Spetz's Watercolor Quest. Motivated by the natural beauty around him, Spetz chooses his subject matter from inspiring wilderness locales — from Alaska's wild interior and Hawaii's "Big Island" to the popular port towns on the Mexican Riviera. During the course of one episode, Spetz leads viewers through the entire watercolor painting process, from an original drawing to its finishing touches.
