New to the schedule are competition series Sugar Dome, in which food artist teams go to battle to create visually stunning food displays; Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals, in which Brit chef Jamie Oliver builds on his 30 Minute Meals show by creating two fast and healthy back-to-back meals; and Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cookery Course (pictured above), in which episodes will focus on different themes and techniques that are essential for modern cooks, like roasting, baking and cooking with various spices. The series airs on Channel 4 in the UK.

Returning Canuck series include Chef Michael’s Kitchen, Mondays at 6 p.m. (starting January 7); Bitchin’ Kitchen with Nadia Giosia, Mondays at 7 p.m. (also January 7); Pitchin’ In, featuring Canadian chef Lynn Crawford, Mondays at 11 p.m (January 7); and another season of Lone Eagle Entertainment’s You Gotta Eat Here, Fridays at 9 p.m. (February 15), which sees comedian John Catucci going across the country to find Canada’s best comfort food.
