With £1,000 in prospect for the week’s most improved amateur cooks, you’d think the mood at John Whaite and Rosemary Shrager’s TV cookery school would be one of quiet endeavour. This most definitely isn’t MasterChef, however, and it seems that hearing the Shrager Shout is enough to make anyone giddy.

In this new series, four pairs of lively cooks take on three daily challenges in a bid to win the week, and it’s guts or glory on their first day; they must perform a grisly beheading on a fresh mackerel and set fire to a pan of boozy bananas. First, though, poached eggs on toast. How wrong could a simple breakfast dish possibly go?


Four competitive couples attend a week-long residential cookery school run by Rosemary Shrager and John Whaite, facing daily challenges to be crowned champions.
