The competitive show will be broadcast on BBC One and presented by Claudia Winkleman
Over eight 60-minute episodes, 10 contestants will be asked to serve meals that reflect both the modern and classic dishes of British home cooking, in a battle to be crowned the best home cook in Britain.
Their efforts will be assessed by lead judge Mary Berry, along with chef and food writer Dan Doherty and Chris Bavin, a TV presenter and fresh produce importer, best known for co-presenting BBC One’s ‘Eat Well for Less?’
In the clip, which aired this week, Claudia is filmed strolling through the kitchens of the contestants, complimenting their dishes as she explains the premise of the series. In the final shot, Mary is seen discussing a meal with fellow judges Dan and Chris.
Claudia says: “We’ve been finding some of Britain’s best home cooks – whether it’s an everyday meal or something more special – extraordinary people making ordinary food taste amazing. The search is on for Britain’s best home cook.”
A transmission date for the show has not yet been released but Amazon currently lists a hardcover from BBC Books entitled ‘Britain’s Best Home Cook: Great Food Every Day’. Featuring recipes by Jordan Bourke and a foreword by Claudia Winkleman, the title comes out on April 19.
