The search is on for Britain’s Best Home Cook, in a brand new BBC One cookery competition judged by the queen of home cooking Mary Berry, produce expert Chris Bavin, top chef Dan Doherty, and hosted with wit and warmth by Claudia Winkleman.

This is the ultimate immersive cooking competition with home at its heart, bringing 10 passionate home cooks from across the country together to live in a shared house while they compete for the crown. Over the weeks they will face a comprehensive range of culinary challenges, from fabulous feasts to the nation's favourite dishes, and all things in between.

Over eight episodes Mary, Chris and Dan will set challenges that will ask the cooks to demonstrate individual flair, skill, creativity and breadth in their home cooking. The themes chosen get increasingly more challenging and technically advanced, setting the cooks apart in terms of their abilities and skills. Each week they must make an ultimate home favourite and then create an improvised dish around a single ingredient - before it boils down to the elimination round to decide who is going to leave the competition for good.

Britain’s Best Cook (8x60') was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director of Content, and David Brindley, Head of Commissioning, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment. It is being made by KEO Films where the Executive Producers are Andrew Palmer, Matt Cole, Claire Nosworthy, Clare Paterson. The BBC Commissioning Editor is Catherine Catton. There is a BBC book that will accompany the series.
