SAT.1 in Germany has announced that hit primetime cooking competition The Taste, produced by Redseven Entertainment, will return for season eight on September 2, at 8:15pm.

The new season will see model and author Angelina Kirsch take over presenting duties, alongside a panel of judges that includes newcomer, Austrian chef Alex Kumptner, and regular judges Alexander Herrmann, Tim Raue and Frank Rosin.

In The Taste, 16 amateur and professional chefs from across Germany will compete for the judges’ approval based on the blind taste of a single spoonful of food, for the chance to win €50,000 and their own cookbook.

The format was originally created and produced by Kinetic Content for ABC (US), and has now been distributed by Red Arrow Studios International to over 40 territories worldwide.
