Channel 4 has commissioned 30 episodes of daytime series Beat the Chef, presented by restaurateur Andi Oliver.
In the updated format, the show takes amateur cooks and pits them against award-winning chefs, Mark Sargeant, Frederick Forster, Hrishikesh Desai and Sophie Michell, with a £10,000 jackpot up for grabs for whoever excels in the fast paced cook-offs.
In the first round of the competition, the contestants make their favourite recipe and the professional chefs create their own version of the contestant’s dish.
Both dishes are then blind taste tested by a jury and each vote a contestant wins from the jury is worth money that is added to their potential prize pot.
In the second round the tables are turned and the chefs choose the dish, but will the contestants version be up to scratch?
The amateur cooks must then guess how many votes they will receive from the tasting jury. If their prediction is right they win the money, and if they get the majority vote they win the £10,000 jackpot.
However, if they lose they will go home with nothing.
Twofour and Motion Content Group produced the series and the director of programmes at Twofour, Rachel Innes-Lumsden, said: “We are delighted to be making another series of Beat the Chef for Channel 4. This re-vamped format ups the chances of the amateur beating some of the UK’s finest chefs.”
