BBC announces new cooking show

GBBO books 

Fans of The Great British Bake Off who were disappointed that the show was leaving the BBC now have something to look forward to watching. The network has just announced that it will be producing a new reality cooking show begininng in 2017.

Called ‘The Big Family Cooking Challenge’, the program will follow multi-generational family teams of amateur cooks, who will participate via their home kitchens, each facing a weekly culinary challenge. One by one the teams will be eliminated until one family stands as the winner. Twelve episodes have been ordered for the show, which has not yet cast any judges or started filming.

It’s not clear whether this is the program hinted at last month that would star Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc, and Sue Perkins. Last week, the BBC announced it had struck a development deal with GBBO winner Nadiya Hussain, so GBBO fans also have that to console them.
