'Food Glorious Food' stars preview new series

Carol Vorderman is set to present a new ITV series tonight. 'Food Glorious Food' is produced by Simon Cowell's SyCo and see's Tom Parker Bowles, Loyd Grossman, Anne Harrison and Stacie Stewart set out on a mission to find Britain's best home cooked dish.

Carol and the judges spend the first six episodes of the series travelling the length and breadth of the country with anyone of any cooking ability and any age are invited to take part in roadshows displaying their culinary techniques.

Loyd Grossman has spoken out about the new series saying; 

"We have a lot of programmes on TV with guys in white jackets shouting at members of the public. 

But on this programme, it's not about chefs. It's about the love of food."

On moving away from a typical British cooking competition,Carol Vorderman went onto add;

"I don't like things that get shouty or when you get four people cooking a steak with caramelised onions like it's life or death. 

It's not life or death, it's a bit of meat. 'Oh this is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life'. No it's not! You've cooked a bit of meat. I can't deal with that.

I don't like shows with aggression."

The winner of the series will win £20,000 and their product will appear on the shelves of supermarket Marks & Spencer in the future. The show begins tonight on ITV at 8pm.

To me it looks like 'Great British Bake Off' may have some competition, but what do you think?

Not even in the slightest. It's a Simon Cowell production and it's on ITV, it'll be trash reality rubbish with a feel good tinge like all their other guff. No focus on food, finesse or production values just like their other food competition franchise "Best Dish..." Vorders comments have become cliché to say the least and it shows the unimaginative narrative that will run throughout the program.
