My favourite cooking show. Judged by my favourite chef. What’s not to love? The skills tests this year were pretty brutal, and the departure of Monica Galletti was ably covered by Anna Haugh, who’s forged a formidable place for herself in the lineup. This year’s contestants all seemed pretty green (although notable to see how confident Marcus was from the outset about the eventual winner), but as the field was whittled down some real culinary talents shone. This is reality television done right, and a celebration of the UK’s finest young talent.
