In an interview with Texas Real Food discussing the show and how it describes the food, series director Norma Buckley (who appeared on this podcast shortly before the show was renewed) said it was set in March 2019, they started planning in June 2019, and finished filming in October, and finished The series is quite right as it closes in March 2020.
