Cooking shows to feast on this autumn

The new series of Great British Bake Off might be the talk of the telly but what other cooking shows will whet your appetite this autumn? We’ve lined up a list of Freeview favourites to satisfy your cravings. Stay tuned, you’re in for a treat…

Come Dine With Me

Switch over to Channel 4 for three courses of blood, sweat and beers. While the quality of food is questionable, the bickering and point-scoring makes it a sure-fire hit. What’s more, who doesn’t enjoy watching a group of strangers come together for a side of entertainment ranging from opera singing to a neon rave party?

The Big Family Cooking Showdown

Bake Off favourite Nadiyah Hussain has teamed up with Zoe Ball for BBC 2’s fun-filled show where families across the UK endeavour to turn ordinary food into something extraordinary. There’s conflict and comradery in the kitchen as the families go head-to-head. The competition gets heated, but it’s set to warm your heart.

Great British Bake Off Series 1


Mary Berry withdrawal symptoms? Fear not… Series 1 of The Great British Bake Off is available on Freeview’s Really channel. The original gang, Mel and Sue included, are back together on our screens this autumn. For Bake Off veterans, series 8 is also available on Channel 4 – you really can have your cake and eat it!

Dinner Date

Think lovechild of First Dates and Come Dine With Me and there you have it: ITV’s Dinner Date. The show’s singleton must pick their favourite three menus before embarking on a series of blind dates. The favourite is rewarded with a meal out while the losers are forced to eat their ready meals with only the cameraman for company. Love and lasagne – what more do you need?

Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares USA


After a fiery cooking show? Look no further: Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares USA on More4 is the hottest of the lot. Gordon Ramsay visits failing restaurants and whips them into shape. However, hell hath no fury like Chef Ramsay, so viewers beware of his potty mouth. The food might not be so appetising but for entertainment value it’s 10/10.
