ITV Productions are now casting in the South East for a new series of ‘Britain’s Best Dish’, ITV1’s nationwide cooking competition to find Britain’s most mouth-watering dish.
The concept of the programme involves competent, home cooks taking on the challenge of presenting original dishes for our panel of distinguished experts; John Burton Race, Jilly Goolding and Ed Baines. Each week, a different region of the UK is represented and provides us with an opportunity to explore and champion local and seasonal food.
Now into its fifth series, the search has begun to find the next crop of talented cooks. Potential contestants would need to cook their own recipe of a starter, main course or dessert. We will be holding nationwide auditions in January and February 2011 with the overall winner of the series taking away £10,000 in prize money.
Last year saw Jonathan Davies from the North of England take the £10,000 first prize with ‘Seared Masala Spring Lamb’. In the final, he closely fought off the challenge of Sue Van Gaalen with her ‘Trio of Lancashire Treats’ and Stephen Holding’s ‘Smoked Salmon with Pea Puree’.
Regularly attracting viewing figures in excess of two million, we are expecting the fifth series to be bigger than ever, showcasing great regional produce, exciting local ingredients and plenty of taste.
