I know there are lots of you out there who love food and cooking. You may have considered applying for 'Masterchef' but decided against it when you realised it was really only for those who wanted to be professional cooks. And you may even have considered putting yourself forward for 'Come Dine with Me' only to change your mind when you discovered you’d be ridiculed on national TV.
If only there were a TV show out there for the likes of you…
Well, now there is. I was sent a press release this morning about a new cooking series on Sky which is currently looking for people to take part. It’s aiming to find the best regional amateur cooking teams of two in Ireland and the UK. It’s not about professional chefs. Instead, it’s all about real people who have a passion for food, who like to host dinner parties, who are constantly trying new things and love showcasing their reagion and local produce.
If that sounds like you, here’s what they have to say:
Are you passionate about cooking great food?
Do you have a friend or partner who shares your enthusiasm for entertaining and cooking up a storm in the kitchen?
Boundless Productions, the production company behind The Apprentice, are on the hunt for the best amateur cooking couples from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales for a new Sky One series.
If selected, each amateur cooking team will be asked to showcase their cooking and entertaining skills in front of some of the country’s top professional chefs.
We are looking for REAL homemade food, cooked by REAL people with REAL passion.
Whether you’re siblings, work colleagues, life-long friends or romantically involved we’re looking for couples who share a history and the ability to serve up some exceptional food.
If you think you and your cooking partner has what it takes to represent your region in the UK and Ireland’s ultimate cooking test we’d love to hear from you.
