Channel 5 seeking successful catering couples

Channel 5 seeking successful catering couples

A new Channel 5 TV series is looking for couples who work together to run an eating establishment, which can be anything from a restaurant, to a café, gastro pub, hotel restaurant, bistro, curry house and more besides.

The series is a contest, to see which couple can prove its restaurant and its skills as a couple are the best. It’s not just about the cooking, it’s a team effort with the pair having to work together to impress the judges who, apparently, include an award-winning chef – his/her identity is currently under wraps. Involving a series of cookery and service challenges, couples will compete against each other to get through to a grand studio finale.

It could be that one half of the couple is the chef and the other runs front of house – if they have a working relationship that is hard to beat, then Channel 5 wants to hear from them.

Couples do not have to be of the married variety – they can comprise friends, relatives, partners, siblings etc. “We’re looking for contestants aged 18+, who run a restaurant as a couple, have a passion for cooking and want to demonstrate their skills and compete in this exciting new show,” said Channel 5.

If you or anyone you know would like to apply to take part, simply call 0207 308 5454 or email and give your names, restaurant name and location, ages and contact details.

A member of the team will get back to you as soon as possible. Deadline is 17 February 2012.
