With a working title of ‘Beat The Chef’, the 20-part series of 30 minute episodes will see amateur cooks go head to head against professional chefs in fast-paced cook offs in a bid to win a £10,000 cash prize.
The four chefs to beat are Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Mark Sargeant, celebrity chef Clodagh McKenna, award-winning chef James Tanner and Roux scholar Frederick Forster.
The broadcaster said: ‘Each round sees passionate home cooks battling to win over members of a tasting jury who will blind taste the dishes. It’s a gastronomic gamble – if they cook well, they’ll climb up the money ladder, but lose, and they walk away with nothing. This brand new format promises to unite game show and cookery competition in a unique and compelling way.’
Transmission dates for the show are to be confirmed.
