The Topps are back on TV!

Posted in: Television
By staff - 12th May 2014


Lynda and Jools Topp have taken a culinary journey around New Zealand meeting passionate food producers, home cooks and lovers of life.

In their factual series with heart, Topp Country, the Topp Twins seek out the real people behind NZ cooking to bring us tales from the countryside through the universal pleasure of food and love.

The Twins appeal to a diverse range of people and relate well to one and all: from free-range pig farmers in the deep rural south to urban taco-trucking hipsters. On their journey around New Zealand they warm their way into the hearts and homes of everyday kiwis and discover people unified in their love of life, of each other and of the food they are producing, cooking and eating. Original music features throughout as these gals invariably end up singing for their supper.

The Twins’ comedy characters make cameo appearances – Camp Mother and Camp Leader present Saucy Tips, while rural blokes the Kens close each episode with a poem celebrating the country lifestyle and what it means to be a Kiwi, in love with our land and its bounty.

Topp Country is on TV1 on Sundays at 8PM.
