Beat The Chef Returns To Channel 4

News Image
Channel 4 has commissioned Twofour and Motion Content Group to create a further 30 episodes of Beat the Chef.

Andi Oliver will return with a refreshed format for a bumper run of the daytime series that sees amateur cooks go head-to-head against award winning chefs.

Professional cooks Mark Sargeant, Frederick Forster, Hrishikesh Desai and Sophie Michell will defend the £10,000 jackpot against a different contestant each week.

In the first round contestants will play their own favourite recipe against the chef, who in turn has to cook their version of the amateur's dish. Both meals then go to the tasting jury who blind taste the meals. Every vote the contestant wins from the jury is worth money and adds to their potential prize pot.

Onto the second round and this time the chefs can choose the dish. Can the contestants successfully compete against them to win votes? They must predict how many votes they will get from the tasting jury.

If they get it right they win the money; if they get a majority vote they win the £10,000 jackpot. But lose, and they walk away with nothing.

Rachel Innes-Lumsden, Director of Programmes at Twofour, 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."

The series is commissioned by Jo Street and executive produced by Rachel Innes-Lumsden. The executive producer for Motion Content Group is Melanie Darlaston. The series director is Colin May and the series producer is Stuart Derrick.
