Our lives were forever changed when regent queen of cooking competition hosts Mary Berry said “ta-ta” to our beloved The Great British Baking Show last year. At long last, BBC finally answered our prayers by casting Berry as the lead judge on a new, bigger and better cooking competition series, Britain’s Best Cook.
The show will air on BBC One and follows the journey of several amateur chefs as they execute cooking challenges in an attempt to impress Berry's critical delightful taste buds. Lucky for us, she's ready and raring to go. “I am never more at home than when I have my judging hat on. This series is going to encourage proper home cooking, which I have always championed and I cannot wait to start,” she said in a statement released by BBC One.
Claudia Winkleman (The Great British Sewing Bee) joins Berry as host, a decision the pastry perfectionist fully supports. “Claudia, for me, is the icing on the cake,” Berry continued. That Bezza, so punny.
