Early Evening

Cookery and food programming have been a successful staple of schedules for as long as there has been TV. 

Reflecting the nations tastes and sensibilities over the years, it seamlessly moves from practical to flamboyant; competitive to journalistic, attracting broad and loyal audiences year after year. One of the richest genres on television, it’s launched celebrity chefs as famous as movie stars, instigated political change and gripped the nation with show stoppers and soggy bottoms.

So what is it about food on television that is so compelling? What are the must have ingredients for a successful food show and just how important is the food itself? In world of Netflix and Instagram how is the genre evolving and who will be the big names of the future?

To discuss we have Channel 4’s Head of Features & Formats, Sarah Lazenby; Managing Director of Shine TV (makers of MasterChef), Tanya Shaw; restauranteur, food writer and presenter and cook, Nisha Katona MBE and cook, bestselling author and champion of sustainable, nourishing food Melissa Hemsley.
