Nigella's new TV Series - THE TASTE

(1 Post)
MEDIA: The Taste Wed 28-Aug-13 15:29:17

The Taste is a brand new Channel 4 national cookery contest that puts taste at the forefront of the show. Whether contestants work in the food industry already or simply love to cook at home, we are looking for creative people who are passionate about food and who think they have what it takes to be crowned Britain’s most naturally gifted cook!

The brand new series, based on the US hit format, will see Nigella Lawson and her fellow judges, American chef Anthony Bourdain and French chef Ludo Lefebvre battle it out to find The Taste's first British winner. Contestants will try to please the palates of the professionals with just one spoonful of food, and with the tastings performed blind the pressure is on to make one small, but perfect, serving.

We are looking for a variety of cooks and we want to find the best of what the UK has to offer in amateur cooks, home cooks, supper club cooks, pop-up cooks, food market cooks, student cooks and professional cooks… the list is endless. If you just love to cook then we want to hear from you!
