Food, glorious food

9 November 2022

As we head into autumn, the days are getting decidedly chillier, the leaves are turning orange and summer is a fading memory. We’re switching ice creams and salads for hot soups and coffees and our thoughts are definitely turning to home cooked, comfort food. If you’re looking for some cooking tips or simply need inspiration for some autumn warming recipes, there is a full menu of cookery shows on offer.

Saturday Kitchen Live

Where better to start than with Saturday Kitchen Live. The show was launched on 26 January 2002 and was hosted by Gregg Wallace. He was joined by a celebrity chef each week, and the show was pre-recorded and low budget. Like a tried and trusted recipe, the show and the format has stood the test of time and continues to delight us with mouth-watering food, wonderful chefs and celebrity guests.

Calling all food enthusiasts 

Food Network is a dedicated food channel featuring world famous chefs, mouth-watering recipes to satisfy our food cravings and passionate foodie personalities. Travelling from top US eateries in Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, to the Texan ranch in The Pioneer Woman, to the British kitchens of expert chefs in My Greatest Dishes, the network caters to pretty much every taste. 

Let them eat cake

If you have a sweet tooth or baking is more your passion, the thirteenth series of The Great British Bake Off is well underway. We’ve seen the talented bakers create cake sensations, beautiful bread, delicious desserts and perfect (or not so perfect) pastry. We’ve definitely been inspired by this year’s contestants.

Dinner for five

If you’re looking for some dinner party classics or a twist on old favourites, Come Dine With Me may give you some inspiration. There have been some amazing, disappointing and some very questionable dishes served throughout this long-running show but let’s hope your guests will be supportive rather than critical if something doesn’t go quite to plan.
