The Taste

Recorded in B Stage at Pinewood Studios for a 10 x 60 series and features TV cook and bestselling author, Nigella Lawson and her fellow judges, American chef Anthony Bourdain and French Chef Ludo Lefebvre.

Each week, Nigella and her fellow mentors will face a collision of fiery cookery challenges, blind-taste eliminations and simmering egos as the contestants' battle it out to please the palates of the professionals with just one spoonful of food. All tastings are blind so the pressure is on to make one small, but perfect, serving.
