In brand new four-part series, The Secret Chef, Britain’s worst cooks are set to be transformed into culinary masters to the utter astonishment of their family and friends. Episode 2 airs on Tuesday 7 March 2017 at 8.00pm on ITV.
Each week one kitchen novice will have just five weeks to learn and prepare a show-stopping restaurant meal, taught in secret by a top chef. The trainee’s family and friends will be invited to a restaurant at the end of the show, unaware that the food they are eating is entirely the work of their loved one, who previously struggled to boil an egg.
Each secret chef is allowed one close friend to help them with the burden of keeping their mission under wraps, whilst providing a kitchen in which to practise their culinary skills.
In the second show, businessman Steve goes out on a limb to prove that he has what it takes to master the art of cooking in just five short weeks. In his 27 years of marriage, Steve has never so much as peeled a potato. To make up for the many years she has had to spend as the house cook, he wants to surprise his wife for their wedding anniversary. Fortunately, top chef Glynn Purnell (pictured above left) is on hand to give Steve a crash course in commanding the kitchen.
The Secret Chef Episode 2 (of 4) airs on Tuesday 7 March 2017 at 8.00pm on ITV.
