BBC One’s cookery competition for home cooks has been recommissioned from KEO Films.
Mary Berry, Dan Doherty and Chris Bavin will judge the nation’s best home cooks in the search to crown one of them the winner. Claudia Winkleman will present.
Commissioned by Charlotte Moore, director BBC content, and David Brindley, head of commissioning for popular factual and factual entertainment, the eight-part series will see the cooks showcase recipes that have been passed down through generations and that they share with family and friends every day.
The contestants will compete to follow in the footsteps of Oncology Research Biobank Technician, Pippa Middlehurst, who won the competition with a winning menu of Massaman curry with jasmine rice, grilled prawns and a Thai herb salad, followed by a Mary Berry inspired Mango and Raspberry cake.
Moore said: “It’s a delicious recipe: one Mary Berry, add two judges, ten contestants and then Claudia Winkelman. And it’s exciting to be growing a new cooking show on BBC One; the search for Britain’s Best Home Cook continues.”
Brindley added: “This competition truly celebrated what home cooks are creating daily, up and down the country. What we saw in the last series were incredibly passionate cooks who’s influences from their experiences and cultural backgrounds were the basis for a range of recipes that wowed our judges. We’re delighted to be bringing another series back to BBC One.”
