Discovery has commissioned Blink Films to produce brand new food show, Tom Kerridge Barbecues, for Food Network.

Tom Kerridge Barbecues (12×30) follows Kerridge as he shares his passion for BBQs and cooking with fire, showing viewers how to prepare his favourite dishes – both classics and new inventions.

Clare Laycock, VP Head of Lifestyle and Entertainment Brands said: “It’s a joy to welcome one of Britain’s best loved chefs back to Food Network with this new series. Tom is an expert at seeking out the most unique recipes. With more and more people turning to BBQs to feed their families this summer, it’s the perfect time for him to help Britain up its BBQ game and create truly stunning meals.”

Tom Kerridge said: “Who doesn’t like outdoor food? Sunshine, the sound of food cooking, and most of all, the incredible smells!  I’m going to be cooking a wide range of dishes, lots of different flavours, but all of it focused on outdoor eating.”

Dan Chambers, Creative Director at Blink Films said: “I defy anyone to watch the show without having an overwhelming desire to get creative with their tongs and coals.”

Tom Kerridge Barbecues was ordered by Clare Laycock and commissioned by Charlotte Reid, Head of Commissioning for Lifestyle & Entertainment channels. Matt Reid is Commissioning Executive for Food Network and Dan Chambers for Blink Films.
