COME DINE WITH ME: THE PROFESSIONALS RENEWED FOR SECOND SERIES ON CHANNEL 4
In Come Dine With Me: The Professionals, teams of professional chefs and restaurateurs will take on each other in a bid to be crowned the best independent restaurant in their town, county or city.
Each self-contained episode will feature three local eateries competing to claim the prestigious CDWM:TP award and a cash prize shared among the winning restaurant’s staff.
Each restaurant will be represented by a partnership of two – for example the owner and head chef – who will welcome their rivals for a meal that they hope will impress.
The dinner takes place during a normal service, so the visitors will have the chance to check out the atmosphere, the food and the service. At the end of each meal, the visiting restaurant pairs will score the evening out of 20 with the highest scorers overall scooping the prize.
Speaking about the first series, MultiStory Media’s CEO Tim Carter said: "For 15 glorious years, we've been celebrating the culinary creations and epic fails that pour forth from the Nation's home kitchens...
"Now, as they recover from the battering of the last couple of years, Come Dine With Me cheers on Britain's restaurants with its customary love note to gastronomic endeavour".
Previous episodes of Come Dine With Me: The Professionals are available on All4. The recommission was originally reported by Broadcast.
