It’s the final of Food Glorious Food.
 
Yorkshire school teacher Rahila with her traditional White Chicken Korma and the students from Star Bistro with their summer fruit jelly, will go head to head and compete for the ultimate home cook’s prize - a place on the supermarket shelves and £20 000 
 
The fate of the winner will be decided by the Great British public in secret in-store trails up and down the country.
 
As both are transformed from their home cooked kitchen recipes to dishes that can be made in their thousands and things don’t go to plan as Rahila’s spices prove problematic and Star Bistro’s boozy jelly pushes the development team over the limit.  
 
Series overview: 
 
Anyone with a passion for cooking has a favourite dish that they love to cook, be it something they created themselves, or a recipe passed down through the generations.
 
Now, in this delightful new series for ITV, a team of expert judges have scoured the country for Britain’s best loved recipe, with the winning dish earning a place on the shelves of Marks & Spencer and a £20,000 cash prize. 
 
Presented by Carol Vorderman, the series will see contestants up and down the country bringing their dishes to be sampled.
 
The judges, Stacie Stewart from the Beehive Bakery, food writer and editor Tom Parker Bowles, food connoisseur Loyd Grossman and vice chairwoman of the WI Anne Harrison, will be tasting the dishes and choosing their favourites to go through to the next round.
 
From pasties to pastries, jellies to jalfrezis and cakes to casseroles, any dish is welcome as this colourful series celebrates food, glorious food for the nation. 
 
This is a show that is not on the lookout for the next British super chef but just one brilliant home cooked recipe that the nation can fall in love with, and anyone and everyone is in with a chance.
