In four-part ITV series The Secret Chef, Britain’s worst cooks are set to be transformed into impressive chefs, to the utter astonishment of their family and friends.
Each week someone with minimal cooking skills is given 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 has one close friend to help them with the burden of keeping their mission under wraps, while providing a kitchen in which to practice their culinary skills.
The final episode of the series features single dad Steve, who is a loving father but a useless cook. After years of kitchen catastrophes, he would like to surprise his daughters and parents with a truly memorable meal. It is up to chef Nigel Haworth (pictured right) – chef patron of Northcote Manor in the Ribble Valley – to show market trader Steve how it is done and how to truly impress his nearest and dearest.
The Secret Chef Episode 4 (of 4) airs on Tuesday 21st March 2017 from 8.00pm-9.00pm on ITV.
