PRODUCTION is currently underway for the second series of Britain’s Best Home Cook on BBC One and you could be involved.
They are extremely keen to find brilliant cooks from all over the country and have opened the opportunity to our readers and food lovers in the Llanelli area who may have the skills and the passion to become Britain’s Best Home Cook.
Mary Berry will return to the series alongside top chef Dan Doherty and produce expert, Chris Bavin. Claudia Winkleman will also return as presenter.
They are looking for passionate and talented home cooks who love making delicious food for their friends and family to apply for the programme.
Commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director BBC Content and David Brindley, Head of Commissioning, 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.
Charlotte Moore says: “It’s a delicious recipe: one Mary Berry, add two judges, ten contestants and then Claudia Winkleman. And it’s exciting to be growing a new cooking show on BBC One; the search for Britain’s Best Home Cook continues.”
David Brindley says: “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.”
KEO Films’ Chief Creative Officer and Executive Producer, Andrew Palmer, says: “What made this series so endearing was that the food being made was from the heart. Our contestants demonstrated cooking that we haven’t seen in other cookery shows and we are looking forward to seeing what our next home cooks will create.”
The contestants will compete to follow in the footsteps of Oncology Research Biobank Technician, Pippa Middlehurst, who won the competitionwith 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. Her dishes inspired by her grandmother and grandfather who introduced her to Asian cuisine at an early age.
