C4 adds to the menu with new commission 'Best Chef, Worst Chef' (w/t)
Channel 4 has commissioned betty to make Best Chef, Worst Chef where some of the country’s top Michelin starred chefs will take on the challenge of transforming cooks from greasy spoons, pubs, and cafes to make them world class.
Each episode will chart the ups and downs of one protégé as they attempt to learn all they can from their mentors in just three weeks before being sent abroad to one of Europe’s top restaurants to put their skills to the test.
Can they pass themselves off as a consummate commis chef or will the pressure prove too much?
The new 6 x 60 series was commissioned by Nick Hornby, Commissioning Editor, Features. The executive producer is Neil Smith and the series producer is Zoe Page for betty.
Nick Hornby said: “Best Chef Worst Chef promises to be a thrilling new chapter in Channel 4’s illustrious tradition of insanely entertaining food programmes, taking us to the outer extremes of Britain’s extraordinarily vibrant food culture.”
Neil Smith, executive producer for betty, said: “This doc style format takes us to the real kitchen underbelly seeing the pressures and precision of world class chefs at work and showing just how tough it is to make the grade.”
