DAME PRUE LEITH LANDS NEW ITV WEEKEND COOKING SERIES
Cooking grandee Dame Prue Leith will debut a brand new cooking series, Prue Leith’s Cotswold Kitchen on ITV1 and ITVX in February 2024.
Set in her own idyllic Cotswolds home kitchen, the national treasure will celebrate and cook some of her all-time favourite dishes. More than a cookery show, Prue, alongside her right-hand man and husband, John, will share their top kitchen hacks and culinary short-cuts to help simplify cooking.
The ten-part series will see Prue treat viewers to an array of dishes, from easy-to-make mid-week meals, to dinner party-inspired dishes or even a simple dessert, that’s always worth the calories.
In Prue’s own words, it will be a ‘simply delicious romp’ through a recipe folder she’s been building up over 60 years in the culinary world, with a few tantalising stories served up in Prue’s unique style.
Along the way, John will share a few of his own gems of wisdom garnered from their years of country living - everything from showing viewers how best to grow and harvest your own fruit and veg to how to whip up the perfect ‘wow factor’ gin martini.
In each episode, Prue will invite a special guest into her home kitchen to cook and share one of their own favourite recipes. As they sit down to enjoy the dish around the family table, they will ‘chew the fat’ on everyday issues that may be especially pertinent to them.
Prue will also celebrate a cast of incredible Food Heroes throughout the series; impressive entrepreneurs in the Cotswolds and around the UK who make delicious products that she’ll showcase in an array of delectable dishes for her and John to enjoy.
Prue Leith said: “All in all Prue’s Cotswold Kitchen is about the things that matter to me in my dotage: family, friends, home, farm and food. And I’m such an egotist, I’m looking forward to sharing them all with the world.”
Leanne Clarke, ITV Entertainment said: “I am thrilled for us to be invited into Prue Leith’s Cotswold Kitchen for an ITV1 Daytime first! Having the legend that is Dame Prue Leith on our screens from her own home every Saturday morning, sharing never before heard anecdotes and many of her all-time favourite recipes is a real treat that will show the culinary icon in a whole new light. Let’s get cooking!”
Sarah Stevenson, Yeti Television said: “It’s a real privilege to be making this series alongside Prue and ITV. Prue is such a talented, inspirational woman and natural raconteur, we can’t wait to share all her fascinating tips and tales with viewers.”
Prue Leith’s Cotswold Kitchen will air on ITV1 and ITVX from February 2024.
