LOCAL people are wanted to take part in a new BBC show that will aim to find Britain's best cook judged by Mary Berry.

Presented by Claudia Winkleman, the show will see ten contestants demonstrate “skill under pressure and individual flair,” as they’re asked to serve the most perfect version of classic British dishes as well as create their special take on well-loved classics.

The judges will be looking for specially made dishes - whether it’s roast beef with the perfect roast potatoes, a special twist on chicken curry or an irresistible chocolate pudding.

Each challenge will reveal new tips and techniques as the competing cooks battle to prove that they have the skills and technical ability,

resourcefulness and creativity to get through to the final and be crowned Britain’s Best Cook.
