Canadian public broadcaster the CBC has grabbed competition reality series Recipe to Riches (pictured) from Shaw Media’s Food Network, adding the show to its winter 2014 line-up.

Recipe to Riches comes from Canuck indie Temple Street Productions, which produced earlier CBC reality shows such as Over the Rainbow and How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?

Also joining the net’s roster of new series for winter is Four Rooms, a reality series that features art buyers vying for Canadians’ prized possessions, including art, antiques and memorabilia. The format originally aired on Channel 4 in the UK.

Elsewhere, the CBC is betting on the return of Battle of the Blades for a fourth season on Sunday nights, with MacLean and Kurt Browning returning to host.

The series, which pairs figure skaters with hockey players in a skating competition for charity, will be supported through integrated multiplatform technology to reintroduce the show to viewers, according to the CBC.

Also returning to the pubcaster’s primetime lineup are 20 new episodes of Dragons’ Den, along with the fifth estate, The Nature of Things with David Suzuki, the pubcaster’s flagship documentary series Doc Zone, and George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.
