AMI's Four Senses to return for fourth season

TORONTO, July 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) announced today that its cooking show with an accessibility twist, Four Senses, is returning for a fourth season and will begin production this fall.

Four Senses is a unique cooking show produced for AMI-tv by Varner Productions Limited that unites blind and sighted chefs in the kitchen. Hosts Christine Ha and Carl Heinrich are back for season four to share new recipes and experiences with a fresh group of celebrity guests. Each 30-minute show will also include nutrition guidelines for optimal eye health and accessibility tips and tools for independence in the kitchen.

"We're thrilled to have Four Senses back for a fourth season," says Brian Perdue, Director of Programming for AMI-tv. "Our audience loves Christine and Carl and the energy they bring to the kitchen. The show is inspiring and encourages people of all abilities to try new recipes, explore locally sourced ingredients and share their passion for cooking."

Special guests this year include celebrities from the culinary world and beyond such as interior design gurus Colin and Justin, fashion icon Jeanne Beker, comedian and television star Luba Goy, and many more. Each guest will share one of their favourite recipes with Christine and Carl, help the hosts prepare two additional dishes and share what inspires their own love of cooking.

Again this season Christine and Carl will be on the road shooting in field segments that highlight Canada's diverse culinary landscape. Christine will explore Ontario, visiting a cranberry farm in Bala, learning about sustainable trout in Collingwood, and paying a visit to Lake Joe – the CNIB's camp for individuals living with vision loss. Carl will be on a Nova Scotia road trip visiting Lunenburg, Wolfville, Digby, and Dartmouth. Along the way he'll check out the Digby Days Scallop Festival, visit the oldest farmers market in Nova Scotia and learn more about the province's growing wine and craft beer scene.

"I'm delighted to be producing another season of Four Senses for AMI-tv," says Anne Marie Varner, executive producer and creator of the series. "The show just keeps getting better and this season we have a very entertaining group of celebrities joining Christine and Carl in the kitchen."



In keeping with AMI's mandate of making accessible media for all Canadians, Four Senses features integrated description, where hosts and guests describe their surroundings and actions for audience members who are blind or partially sighted, as well as closed captioning for those with hearing loss.

Season four of Four Senses will air on AMI-tv in January, 2017. Check your local provider or visit AMI.ca for the AMI channels in your area. The first three seasons of Four Senses are currently available to watch online.
