The search to find the best home cooked recipe in Great Britain continues. This week it’s the turn of home cooks from Yorkshire and the North East to show off their favourite recipes in the hope that their dish will make it on to the shelves of Marks and Spencer. 
This week Food Writer Andi Oliver joins history boffin Tom Parker-Bowles, W.I Top Brass Anne Harrison and Beehive Baker Stacie Stuart.
As usual the entrants are just as enjoyable as the food - from a trophy wielding Yorkshire man with his east meets west Yorkshire puds; a young postmaster whose twist on a trifle fails to impress Parker Bowles and a steaming line up of the nation’s favourite dish, curry.
Only the best win rosettes and with Northern pride at stake some of the home cooks find it hard to take no for an answer. 
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.
