UK net BBC2 is bringing back the long-running series Food and Drink (6 x 30-minutes) in 2013.

The series, which originally ran from 1982 to 2001, will be produced by the BBC and presented by chef Michel Roux Jr., who was previously a judge on the British broadcaster’s Masterchef – The Professionals.

Each episode will feature recipes cooked by Roux and appearances by personalities from the world of food and drink, who will debate and discuss the gastronomical issues of the day.

“The original program inspired many and with Britain’s appreciation for good food having grown so much in the last 30 years, I am looking forward to exploring fantastic food and drink with old and new friends,” Roux said in a statement.

“I will be cooking up some classics, like my signature SoufflĂ© Suissesse which will reflect the program’s heritage. There will be lots of new and exciting recipes and ingredients for viewers to try at home and some surprising modern twists to traditional dishes.”
