With a £1000 prize on the line, the competition is sure to be fierce and full of flavor!

A Taste of Sheffield

The season 2 premiere takes us to the vibrant city of Sheffield and its surrounding areas, where three local eateries will open their doors to host their rivals for a meal that promises to impress. Kicking things off is the husband-and-wife duo, Pansy and Jeremy, at their seafood restaurant, Plesters. Guests are in for an international culinary journey, and the revelation of Jeremy’s missing appendages is sure to spark curiosity and conversation. However, the couple is taken aback by criticism of their seasoning, reminding us that even the smallest details can make or break a dining experience.

The Garrison’s Romantic Ramblings

For the second night, we head to The Garrison, where owner Elliott and manager Sam aim to showcase their fun side. The dynamic duo presents a fine-dining menu, but it’s their romantic ramblings and a rugby revelation that might steal the spotlight from the food. Will their guests be charmed or distracted by these unexpected twists?

Butcher and Catch: A Confident Finale?

The final night of this culinary competition sees front-of-house Rebecca and head chef Stephen of Butcher and Catch step up to the plate. Despite their confidence, the pair has only worked together for four months. Will their inexperience as a team impact their chances of clinching the grand prize, or will they prove that their skills and creativity are a recipe for success?

“Come Dine with Me: The Professionals” offers a unique twist on the traditional cooking competition format. Each self-contained episode features three restaurants going head-to-head, with two representatives from each establishment—such as the owner and head chef—welcoming their competitors for dinner during normal service. This provides a glimpse into the atmosphere, food, and service that each restaurant offers. The iconic voice of Dave Lamb, known for his sarcastic quips, will once again narrate the action, bringing his signature wit to the proceedings.
