About the Show

Brand new live cookery show where the audience decides what the chefs make

Series 1 Summary

Matt Tebbutt and Gizzi Erskine present an exciting, entertaining cooking show, featuring some of the country's most talented chefs and its best-loved celebrities, where the studio audience gets to decide what's cooked.

Each time there's a dish to be made, the giant Drop Down Menu offers the audience three options to choose from, and it's their vote which dictates what happens next.

Drop Down Menu also features classic cooking moments from some of Britain's most popular chefs.

The show also serves up an unsung food hero - a food producer whose ingredients the chefs use to work some magic - as well as a well-known celebrity guest, who gets stuck in with the cooking at the end of the show in a game of high-energy Tag Team Cuisine.
