Breaking down the barriers of disability to reach the life-changing goal of a dream job. Featuring two-star Michelin chef and former MasterChef: The Professionals judge Michel Roux Jr., The Diner follows a group of people with a range of disabilities or long-term conditions, as they strive to pursue careers in the hospitality business. 

Mentored by the chef himself, and with the support of a number of back-to-work charities, the contributors are trained, undertake work experience and attempt to secure work placements or full-time employment.

It's a unique project that celebrates people's abilities, challenges perceptions and aims to transform lives.

The UK transmission version of the series is titled Kitchen Impossible.

 Format and finished programme rights available.

“It is totally different to any cooking show you’ve seen. It’s a celebration of humanity, and there are moments that will move you to tears.” – Daily Mail Weekend

 “Kitchen Impossible doesn’t aim to create a winner but simply to advance the participants’ self-esteem…” – Radio Times
