Two top chefs seek out the nation’s best recipes
In one nation there are millions of homes; in those homes there are millions of kitchens and in those kitchens are millions of secret recipes – some of which have been handed down from generation to generation and have only been enjoyed by a few close family friends and relatives – until now.
Two of the nation’s favorite chefs want to lift the lid on the secrets that set some recipes apart and show viewers the only way to prepare the nation’s most cherished dishes. The best-ever version of a particular food – such as bread, rice or chicken – is the subject of each episode.
Our crack culinary experts sift through thousands of recipes, taste them and make a shortlist of five of their most delicious and tantalizing discoveries. The owners of these recipes are then invited into the studio to tell the story of their dishes and the special ingredients or techniques that make them worthy of the title of The Recipe. Then our chefs will taste them face to face. They must rate the dishes – and after some intense deliberation – choose the winner.
The guardian of the winning recipe then steps into the chefs’ professional kitchen to make the dish with our experts. Full of priceless hints and tips, The Recipe is the ideal show not just for budding chefs, but for all food lovers. Full of opportunities for product placement and digital extensions, it is a flexible format which can work as a stripped daily show, or in weekly instalments.
