In the penultimate episode of The Big Family Cooking Showdown, airing on Thursday 26 October on BBC Two, it’s the last of the semi-finals. Three more families return to the studio kitchen where they go head to head with each other – but with a surprise twist. The Piggotts and the Bellamores are joined by a wildcard family, chosen by Giorgio and Rosemary from the runner-ups. They’ve been given another chance to get to the final.
The families face three demanding, new challenges: Perfect Puddings, Nation’s Favourite With A Twist and What’s In The Fridge? While tonight’s episode is packed with eye-wateringly tasty dishes by talented home cooks – meatballs, moussaka, lemon meringue pie and chocolate fondant – the one thing that almost breaks the families is poached egg.
Which team will have what it takes to earn a place in next week’s final showdown?
The Big Family Cooking Showdown Episode 11 (of 12) airs on Thursday 26 October 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on BBC Two.
