UKTV commissions cooking format for new channel

UKTV has commissioned a new competitive cooking format from Shine TV which will be partly funded by the Food Standards Agency (FSA). The 10 x 60-minute series, tentatively titled Family Cook Off, will debut on UKTV's new food channel Good Food which launches June 22. Teams of two family members each will compete against each other to see who will convince the judges (Amanda Lamb and chef Paul Merret) that they are 'Britain's Best Cooking Family.' The deal was put together by UKTV's head of commercial partnerships Sally Quick, Shine TV's Sara Brailsford and Paolo Proto and Richard Spence on behalf of the FSA.
