The last regional heat in the competition takes up residence in the grounds of glorious Knebworth House.
 
The judges are looking for a winning recipe from London and the Home Counties.
 
The Londoners are out in for force from Town Crier Tony with his mum’s Bread & Butter Pudding, to a Granny with her gravy browning Christmas pud.
 
Also jostling for a rosette are the young guns - including a picky student whose fused her favourite puddings into one original recipe.
 
All hope for a place in the semi-final and a chance to win £20,000 and a place on the shelves of Marks and Spencer.
 
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.
