Tom Kerridge to search for Britain’s best artisan food producers

 

Gloucester chef Tom Kerridge will front a new show searching for Britain’s best artisan food producers.

The amateurs will promote and sell their wares in a real shop in the Yorkshire Dales – and showcase their offerings to two judges.

The BBC Two eight-part series has a working title of ‘The Finest In The Deli: Yorkshire’s Choice’.

At the end of the series, the shop will be filled with the seven winning products from seven different categories and the judges will ask the locals to help them choose the best overall.

Kerridge said: “The huge rise in interest around artisan food products in this country has been phenomenal over the past few years.

“This has led to a great many more amateur food lovers having a go at making goods themselves, with some outstanding results.

“I cannot wait to see the range of artisan products on the shop shelf and seeing if they are well received by the local community!”
