BBC to launch new cookery show

Nadiya Hussain cookbook

Many fans of The Great British Bake Off were saddened when they learned the program would move to Channel 4 from its home on the BBC. But it looks like viewers might be able to have their cake and eat it, too. The BBC has just announced a new show that could rival the beloved GBBO, because it stars one of that program's most beloved winners, Nadiya Hussain

Hussain and Zoë Ball will co-host a program called The Big Family Cooking Showdown. The show's premise is  families competing against each other with their best family recipes. Instead of a tent, the hosts and judges - chefs Rosemary Shrager and Giorgio Locatelli - will be invited into the competitors' homes.

The Big Family Cooking Showdown will premiere this autumn, and will run for 12 episodes. The new version of GBBO will also air this fall, so fans of cookery shows will have twice as much to look forward to viewing. Even better, Nadiya has a three-cookbook deal as a tie-in to the new program!
