It’s week two of brand new twenty part competitive cookery gameshow Culinary Genius. 
 
Hosted by household favourite presenting legend, Fern Britton, and judged all this week by the queen of haute cuisine and Chairwoman of her own Cookery School, Rosemary Shrager, nine home cooks are whittled down in three increasingly intense culinary battles until one rises to glory to claim the one thousand pound cash prize and win today’s coveted title of Culinary Genius.
 
Set in a contemporary high octane culinary arena with a live audience, today’s first challenge is set by tough taskmaster, Rosemary, and designed to test the contestants' knife skills and sift out the disastrous from those with speed and skill. In a dramatic reveal with illuminating fine dining cloches hiding today’s ingredient for the chop, contestants lift and discover a set of ripe tomatoes.
 
Continues Monday to Friday (weekdays) at 3pm on ITV
