Next Episode of Britain's Best Home Cook is
Claudia Winkleman hosts as Mary Berry, Dan Doherty and Chris Bavin put ten of the nation's best home cooks through their paces. Each week the judges set two challenges--an ultimate home favourite and an improvised dish around a single ingredient--before the weakest cooks face the elimination round.
It is then time for the cooks' challenge, which tests their inventiveness and creativity with a key ingredient. The cooks with the best chocolate from challenge one are given the advantage by the judges as they determine the key ingredient in the next round, choosing between aubergine and tofu. The cooks must then invent one dish celebrating the central ingredient and have one hour to win over the trio of judges and avoid the elimination round.
It is week six, and Mary Berry, Dan Doherty and Chris Bavin test the remaining five home cooks on their finest dishes. The cooks have two and a half hours to prepare their ultimate sharing feast, which must contain at least four dishes designed to showcase their individual personality. The cooks are up against it as they try to impress the judges with the complementary dishes that must come together as a complete meal.
It's the semi-final and Mary Berry, Dan Doherty and Chris Bavin continue to test the last four home cooks. The semi-finalists have two and a half hours to prepare their ultimate drinks party with a selection of four savoury canapes, one sweet canape and a drink designed to showcase their individual personality. Then it's the cooks' challenge which tests their inventiveness and creativity with a key ingredient. The cooks with the most perfect drinks parties from challenge one determine the key ingredient choice between orange or ginger. In the morning the cooks return, and in just one hour must win over the judges and avoid the elimination round. Based on their performance in these two challenges, the judges decide who deserves to be in the final and who must cook again. The judges have chosen a classic Italian dish that requires precision, care and skill. At the end one cook must part from the group, leaving just three finalists in contention for the title of Britain's best home cook.
It's the final and Mary Berry, Dan Doherty and Chris Bavin raise the bar for the last time for the three remaining cooks before one of them is crowned the winner. They will have to excel in all three challenges that count towards the final decision and determine the overall winner. First it's the recipe challenge when the cooks must follow the recipe to the letter. The judges have chosen a summer classic and picnic favourite that requires precision, care and skill. Next it's the cooks' challenge which tests the cooks' inventiveness and creativity with a key ingredient. This time the judges are not offering a choice but instead the finalists must make a dish that showcases chicken and mushrooms and create a dish in one hour. Then the cooks have three hours to prepare their ultimate main and pudding. They'll also have to set their tables and play the host with just Claudia as back-up when serving. The judges must then make their final decision and crown one of them the winner.
