Best Home Cook
Best Home Cook is back.
The 8-part series returns with a new lease of life; brand new kitchens, tougher challenges and an exciting and tense finale each week. There’s also a new addition to the judging line-up with Michelin starred chef Angela Hartnett joining the queen of home cooking, Mary Berry and fruit and veg expert Chris Bavin. Hosted with wit and warmth by Claudia Winkleman; ten talented home cooks embark on the ultimate immersive cooking competition, living together in a shared house and competing against each other whilst the trio of judges look on and put their cooking prowess to the test.
Each week the cooks are faced with two challenges, starting with Mary’s ULTIMATE round where the contestants produce their tried and tested food for special occasions.
Up next, it’s Chris’s incredibly difficult RUSTLE UP challenge; one star ingredient and one hour to create a mid-week masterpiece.
Those who haven’t impressed enough across these two challenges will be picked to take part in Angela’s dreaded ELIMINATOR where the cooks go head to head and must follow one of Angela’s recipes, perfectly. Easier said than done when the decision of who goes home is based on that dish alone. The Eliminator is judged blind, and the judges will send home the cook responsible for making their least favourite version of the dish. They will not know which cook has cooked which dish until they’ve made their decision.
