Britain's Best Cook

Britain's Best Cook

We were so sad when Mary Berry left The Great British Bake Off after it moved to Channel 4 so we were very excited when we heard about her new project.

Britain’s Best Cook will see Mary returning to a judging role in this new cooking contest on BBC. The show will put amateur British cooks to the test in cooking traditional British dishes, celebrating all our favourite comfort food dishes our parents and grandparents made for us.

Mary will be judging alongside chef Dan Doherty and food service expert Chris Bavin. Dan is currently chef director at London restaurant, Duck and Waffle, whilst Chris started out as a market trader, and after working in food importing, wholesaling and retailing, he can often be seen on TV programmes such as Eat Well for Less and Food: Truth or Scare.


The three will be judging ten home cooks from across Britain in a range of culinary challenges across the eight-week series, in order to be crown Britain’s Best Cook. The show will be presented by Strictly host, Claudia Winkleman and is set to start on BBC One later this year.
