John Torode hosts this weeks Saturday Kitchen – a cookery show full of mouth-watering food, great chefs and celebrity guests. Viewers get to vote on which recipe will be prepared for the guest at the end of the episode. Also featured is a regular wine-tasting segment.
Saturday Kitchen has become a national institution and its enduring popularity shows how food has moved from functional niche to ‘mainstream lifestyle’. Its theme tune is now as much a signifier of a Saturday as a leisurely late breakfast, visiting the shops or Match of the Day.
Millions start the weekend by waking up to Saturday Kitchen and an assortment of chefs and celebrities with books or films to promote, with the show competing with the more traditional talk show formats as a number one choice for agents. Meanwhile the Saturday Kitchen recipes, the memorable ‘food heaven and hell’ and the ongoing ‘omelette challenge’ are now part of the national lexicon.
