With The Big Family Cooking Showdown kicking off a season of cooking content on our telly screens, here’s a selection of the food series to look out for in the coming months…
The Great British Bake Off
It’s back, but not as we know it… Can Prue Leith win over the cynics as she steps into Mary Berry’s floral bomber jackets? Will Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding whisk up the baking puns as well as Mel and Sue? Only time will tell as Bake Off returns very soon to Channel 4.
Gregg Wallace and John Torode are back on BBC1 this week with the 12th series of the celebrity cooking contest, which sees the likes of popstar Rachel Stevens, comedian Vic Reeves, snooker player Stephen Hendry and Gogglebox vicar Kate Bottley fight it out.
Jamie’s Quick And Easy Food
Jamie Oliver is back on C4 later this month to inspire us to ditch the takeaways and whip up some simple family favourites — using just five ingredients. Covering meat, fish, veggie dishes and sweet treats, if anyone’s going to convince the nation to delete the Deliveroo app and get cooking it’s Jamie.
Britain’s Best Cook
The BBC has created a new show to put Mary Berry back on our screens. Due next year, this will also focus on family cooks, with Berry celebrating the food people make for their loved ones every day. Berry’s charm combined with the wit of Claudia Winkleman is surely a recipe for success.
