Keo Films’ cooking competition format, Britain’s Best Home Cook, has been recommissioned by BBC1.

Mary Berry, returns with chef Dan Doherty and produce expert, Chris Bavin, to judge more of the nation’s best home cooks in the search to crown one of them the winner.  Claudia Winkleman also returns as presenter as the contestants create dishes celebrating modern British home cooking. 

Commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director BBC Content and David Brindley, Head of Commissioning, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment, the eight-part series will see the cooks showcase recipes that have been passed down through generations and that they share with family and friends every day.

Charlotte Moore said: "It’s a delicious recipe: one Mary Berry, add two judges, ten contestants and then Claudia Winkelman. And it’s exciting to be growing a new cooking show on BBC One; the search for Britain’s Best Home Cook continues."

David Brindley added: “This competition truly celebrated what home cooks are creating daily, up and down the country. What we saw in the last series were incredibly passionate cooks who’s influences from their experiences and cultural backgrounds were the basis for a range of recipes that wowed our judges. We’re delighted to be bringing another series back to BBC One.”

KEO Films Chief Creative Officer and Executive Producer, Andrew Palmer, said: “What made this series so endearing was that the food being made was from the heart. Our contestants demonstrated cooking that we haven’t seen in other cookery shows and we are looking forward to seeing what our next home cooks will create.”

The commissioning editor for Britain’s Best Home Cook is Catherine Catton.
