Best In Food (Food Channel) – Premieres 28th January
A show that follows the finalists competing in a national cooking competition. The programme starts off by revealing what competition it will be following, then giving a brief summary of the history of it and the subdivision of the event the people are competing in.
After showing what the judges will be looking for in a winning entry, the programme then goes through each entrant one at time. Where it follows each person from entering the stage, making their dish and then presenting what they’ve cooked to the judges. During this time the entrant talks about how they’ve come up with what they’re cooking, how and why they came to enter the event, and what they’ll be spending the prize money on if they win.
Then when the programme has gone through all the competitors, it shows some brief shots of the judges deliberating before revealing who won. For what it is, the show is like a brief recap of a tournament where you don’t end up invested in anyone shown, making it a bit of a slow watch.
