‘Jenny Morris Cooks Morocco’ on par with well known Food Network talent

The opening 2 episodes of Food Network Chef Jenny Morris’ first series Jenny Morris Cooks Morocco delivered the strongest audience during the 20h10 slot on Mondays on Food Network DStv Channel 185 across 2012. Her prime-time Monday average was 20% stronger than the 2012 Monday slot average. Food Network signed Jenny in July 2011 to host the Channel’s first local commissioned show in South Africa. Jenny’s first series Jenny Morris Cooks Morocco was subsequently filmed and produced earlier this year and launched on Food Network DStv Channel 185 in July 2012. The show continues to air on the Channel. Jenny’s average audience for all broadcasts of her Moroccan odyssey proved to be a winning success says Nick Thorogood, Senior Vice President Content and Marketing of Scripps Networks Interactive. “Viewer response to Jenny as a new chef was overwhelming, performing on par with our already well known Food Network star talents. We are hugely impressed with the engagement Jenny’s show has had with viewers, not only in South Africa but in all of 85 countries where her first series was broadcast.”       

Please tell us a little more about yourself and your journey so far.

From starting off in my schooldays cooking for my teachers to raise funds for my school I have always had a passion for food and from working as a telephone technician when leaving school, to working in the Hospitality industry, and about 16 years ago I started catering for friends which led me on to doing what I do now although I never dreamed I would be where I am today.

You are busy with so many interesting projects. Please tell us a little more about that.

At present I am just finishing my fourth book and looking at possibilities for more TV productions.

You have just recently published a new cooking book. Any advice for aspiring authors?

Never give up even if it takes 10 years for a publisher to accept you, keep writing and putting the book together, when it is done take it to a publisher, you stand more chance that way than just an idea of a book, they like to see something.

What is it that you are passionate about?

Life, people and everything I do I attack with a passion that is frightening to me sometimes, but I supposed when you have been given a second chance at life you live it to the full, I almost died.

Who or What has been the biggest influence in your life and why?

My parents I suppose, my mother was an incredibly hard worker and always put her family first, my father was unbelievably creative and I suppose that is where I get my passion for food. He could sing, play the mouth organ, paint the most beautiful paintings and make furniture, build and I could go on for ever.

What is your personal “motto”?

Do unto others, I believe one should be generous of spirit and help others where it is possible.

What advice would you give your younger self?

Never to let anyone sap your confidence!!!!!

Who or what is your inspiration and why?

Life is my inspiration, and I am living it to the full, ok so is Oprah!

Your favourite daily affirmation?

I thank God for the blessing of every new day and I say God I am going to do all the good I can today!

Your favourite quote:

You become what you think about~Earl Nightingale

Which book are you reading now?

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Travel Books on Italy, France and Turkey

Which book can you read over and over again?

Larrousse which is a culinary Bible!!!

One piece of (general) advice that you’d like to share…

I never bite off more than I can chew, having said that I have a huge mouth, but never take on more than I can over deliver, that drives me, do what you do well!!

Is there anything that Xtraordinary Women can do to assist you on your journey?

Encourage other woman to be the best that they can be.
