LONDON, England – July 31, 2020 –With 40% of Brits [1] currently reigniting their passion for cooking, there’s never been a better time for a culinary challenge and Samsung KX has it covered. The hub of innovation has collaborated with Jessie Ware to host an exclusive episode of her leading ‘Table Manners’ podcast in the connected kitchen. Usually held from her dining room table, the London singer along with her mum Lennie, welcome a special guest each week to cover everything from food to music, culture and politics.


For this specially connected edition, Jessie and Lennie Ware interview professional basketball player and Love Island head chef, Ovie Soko. Having previously starred on the likes of ITV’s This Morning, revealing his ‘infamous egg recipe’, the pair were excited to hear of the culinary king’s latest specialities and unlock the secrets to effortless at-home entertaining.


Located in the heart of the experience space which opened exactly a year ago on 31st July 2019, the duo gets busy whipping up Jessie’s signature dish, a creamy cheese and onion quiche with roasted vegetables, for their special guest Ovie. This was made using Samsung’s latest culinary technology, showing viewers how easy and enjoyable it can be to host friends and family from the comfort of home.


Using a Samsung mobile paired with the Smart Things app, they were able to control the temperature of the Samsung Dual Cook Flex Oven with a simple swipe, setting it to two different temperatures simultaneously. The seamless integration made serving the final dish effortless, heroing the use of connected living when it comes to home cooking whether entertaining or simple everyday dining.


Talking all things food, Ovie also shared top tips for creating his signature roast chicken dish;


  • ‘Mix up a blend of spices, a little bit of olive oil and melted butter. Marinate the chicken and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator.’ See the Samsung KX website here for more culinary inspiration
  • Cooks can also keep check on how the chicken is marinating using the Samsung Family Hub fridge, which lets users view the contents of the inside from a Samsung mobile


Following the cookout, there was plenty of time left to chat with topics including school dinner favourites and Ovie’s motivational self-care book to inspire positive energy and self-love.


Check out the exclusive video on the Samsung KX hub from Friday 31st July.
