Cooking, competition and drama in this reality based cooking format!

Watch the spatulas fly, as four pairs of larger than life characters are put through their paces on a week-long cookery course, under the instruction of star chefs Rosemary Shrager and Great British Bake Off winner, John Whaite. Across the week, they learn essential kitchen skills and compete against other pairs in the school. At the end of the week, the pair judged to be the best walk away with skills to rival the best chefs and an incredible cash prize. But this is more than just a cook-off.

In a radical new combination of competition and actuality, cameras capture the drama and tensions that spill over once the cooking day is done.
