National Geographic Channel broadcasting Croatia’s Finest travel documentary

National Geographic Channel has started broadcasting the gastronomic travel documentary Croatia's Finest, hosted by Masterchef winner Dhruv Baker.

Since the start of October, the English-language travel documentary has been aired in the Asian markets (China, Japan, India, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates and parts of Africa) and it will be shown over the next three years.

The documentary, featuring 20 half-hour episodes, was filmed on locations across Croatia and in each of them Baker cooks on some of the most beautiful locations in the open where no one has cooked before, such as by the sea organ on the Zadar waterfront.

Baker's culinary creations, made of fresh local produce, were inspired by original Croatian dishes.

"Given the reach of National Geographic Channel, notably in the Asian markets, thanks to this documentary, more than half a billion people from some 90 countries will get to know Croatia better in the next three years," said Mak Produkcija, which filmed the documentary.

Croatia's Finest is also being broadcast by Holiday & Cruise TV - Sky Channel 356 in Great Britain and it is soon to be shown in Russia as well.
