BBC Two bringing cooking home in major new series

BBC Two has commissioned Voltage TV to cook up a major new competitive food show.

The series, with a working title of ‘The Big Family Cooking Challenge’, will comprise 12 episodes of 60 minutes each. Already in pre-production, it is due to air in summer 2017.

In the programmes, family teams of passionate amateurs will battle it out for the chance to be crowned the nation’s best home cooks.

The judges will visit family homes and whittle down the teams of cooks through a series of challenges based on the realities of everyday meals.

BBC Two acting head of formats and features Donna Clark said: “I’m thrilled to be taking food competitions in a different direction. A passion for food starts in the family kitchen and this format will take us into homes up and down the country, where we’ll meet Britain’s most passionate and exciting families of cooks.”

Voltage TV chief executive Sanjay Singhal added: “Our ambition is to create a ‘feel good’ show full of character and warmth, with authentic home cooking at its heart.”
