Next Episode of Celebrity Best Home Cook is
Claudia Winkleman presents a star-studded version of the culinary contest, which sees Mary Berry, Chris Bavin and Angela Hartnett judging 10 famous cooks.
In this first edition, Mary wants to know what home cooking means to the contestants, so she challenges them to produce their ultimate home-cooked dinner.
The remaining nine talented celebrity home cooks are put through their paces as they face a series of challenges. First, Mary Berry tasks the famous faces to make a chocolate dessert fit for a romantic date night, before the competitors take on Chris Bavin's tricky challenge of rustling up a dish using his favourite cut of leftover meat. The judges must then decide, taking both challenges into account, who is safe and who needs to prove themselves by cooking again in Angela Hartnett's dreaded Eliminator.
The search for the first ever Celebrity Best Home Cook continues as Dame Mary Berry, the queen of home cooking, Michelin-starred chef, Angela Hartnett, and fresh produce expert Chris Bavin put the remaining eight talented celebrity home cooks through their paces. On hand to playfully encourage the cooks is Claudia Winkleman.
Day One's Ultimate challenge is all about having friends to stay over, as Mary asks the celebrities to make their very best breakfast. The cooks must go all out to impress and its tortillas at dawn as two celebrities engage in a Mexican stand-off, but will the Quesadilla or the Breakfast Burrito win the day? Meanwhile romance is in the air for one celebrity as he tries to seduce the judges with an edible crossword. At the end of this round each judge picks their favourite dish, but will a Judges Favourite be enough to save them from the dreaded Eliminator?
On Day Two, Chris picks an apple as the secret ingredient for his Rustle Up round and the celebrities must think on their feet to produce a dish that will wow the judges. While some celebrities are excited to show off their crumbles, others are stumped at how to make apple the star of their dish - and disaster strikes when one cook fails to turn on their oven. At the end of the round the judges must then decide, taking both the Ultimate and the Rustle Up into account, who is safe and who needs to prove themselves by cooking again in Angela's Eliminator.
Tasked with following another of Angela's recipes in the Eliminator round, the celebrities asked to cook again have one last chance to save themselves and stay in the competition. The challenge is judged blind, so at the end of the round the judges must agree which dish is their least favourite without knowing who has cooked it. The celebrity who has cooked the worst dish must then leave the competition.
In a shock exit, eight celebrities become seven.
The hunt to find the first Celebrity Best Home Cook is heating up as the competition nears its halfway point. The celebrities will once again be donning their aprons and rolling up their sleeves to impress produce expert, Chris Bavin, Michelin star chef, Angela Hartnett, and queen of home cooking, Dame Mary Berry. All with the socially-distanced support of Claudia Winkleman.
The first challenge takes us away from the dining table and into the living room as Mary Berry challenges the cooks to make their Ultimate Burger and Chips for a TV dinner. Some of the celebrities keep it classic, opting for a good quality beef burger, oozing with melted cheese, whilst the others are hoping a vegetarian option or a delicate fish burger will be enough for them to get a Judges' Favourite and a step closer to avoiding the dreaded Eliminator.
Day two gets off to a frosty start as Chris reveals frozen peas as the secret ingredient that the celebrities must make the star of the dish for his Rustle Up challenge. One cook is particularly dis'pea'sed with the ingredient whilst the others are excited by an Asian-inspired larder. With everything from curry to scones, the judges have a difficult decision deciding who will go through to next week and who will be cooking again for safety in this week's Eliminator challenge.
Taking both challenges into consideration, the three judges decide who will be cooking again in this week's Eliminator, following one of Angela's toughest recipes to date. Judged blind, the tiniest of details can be the difference between survival and going home. Making a dough, deep frying and technical piping push the cooks to their limits and result in a shocking blind tasting by the three expert judges.
The competition reaches the halfway point, where the contestants are challenged by Mary Berry to prepare the ultimate Sunday roast. The only rule is that the meal must involve roasted meat and some form of potatoes - they are otherwise free to do whatever they want. Two cooks compete to produce the best pork crackling, while another adds a Morrocan twist. For the second task, Chris Bavin challenges the cooks to make banana bread without using flour, while the final round involves a classic French dessert.
It's the quarter-final, and the remaining celebrities must prepare a celebration cake, a dish centred on chickpeas and three Asian-inspired recipes.
The semi-final round sees the four remaining celebrities challenged to cook a fish supper, a mushroom dish and crab ravioli with homemade pasta.
Claudia Winkleman welcomes the remaining three cooks back into the kitchen for one last time as they compete in the grand final. The deciding challenge is to prepare the ultimate picnic.
