As announced back in July, Channel 4 is to air its own version of ABC America’s The Taste.
Three of the world’s greatest culinary talents – multi award-winning food writer, TV cook Nigella Lawson; critically acclaimed chef Ludo Lefebvre; and legendary food maverick Anthony Bourdain begin their search for the first British winner of The Taste – the high stakes cooking competition where The Taste is the only thing that matters.
Each week, a collision of fiery cookery challenges, blind-taste eliminations and simmering egos are cooked up as contestants battle it out to please the palates of the mentors. But the pressure is on as they can only present one spoonful of their food – and every tasting is done blind, so Anthony, Ludo and Nigella never know whose food they are eating.
Internationally The Taste has been commissioned for a second US series by ABC as well as being sold to CTV in Canada, Australia’s Nine Network, Germany’s Sat.1 and M6 in France.
I’m thrilled that Nigella is returning to Channel 4 alongside Anthony and Ludo. The Taste promises to be a hugely exciting and compelling competition with stellar talent and exceptional cooking at its heart. – Channel 4 Head of Formats, Dominic Bird
The Taste will air from the 7th of January on Channel 4
