Dozens of international networks showed interest in Fresh recently when it was introduced at MIP in Cannes as Olson’s previous show Sugar was also a hit internationally in 60 countries. So far four networks have signed, including Latin America MGM Casa Club, Israel Ananey, Poland Canal+ and Australia XYZ Networks (Lifestyle Food Channel).
In each episode, Olson invites viewers into the warmth and comfort of her own Niagara-region country home, where she guides her viewers through three recipes in each episode. Preparing delicious and accessible recipes for special local events, according to her personal mantra, “eat fresh, eat local.”
Before opening up her life and home for FRESH, Anna Olson had two previous studio-based hit shows. Sugar, produced by Alliance Atlantis ran for five seasons on Food Network and has been sold to almost 60 countries, including India, China, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Romania and Poland. Olson’s previous show Kitchen Equipped ran for three seasons on the Food Network.
Olson is the author of four best selling cookbooks with a fifth being released in November called In the Kitchen with Anna: New Ways with the Classics (Whitecap Books). She runs Olson Foods + Bakery in Port Dalhousie and is about to open a new bakery and fine food store "Olson Foods at Ravine" in St. Davids, Ontario, with her husband Michael this summer.
