New Channel 4 Food Quiz

Are you a culinary whiz? Can your rustle up a feast from a limited larder?

This could be your chance to shine on an exciting new food quiz for Channel 4.

Plum Pictures is looking for teams of two to apply to take part in a brand new food quiz presented by top celebrity chef, Simon Rimmer!

In each episode, two teams of two people will compete against one another in a game of knowledge and cooking skill.

Quiz rounds will win you ingredients to cook with; answer correctly and you could win a prized ingredient. Answer incorrectly and you might end up with an undesirable ingredient. Once all the ingredients have been won, it’s up to each pair of contestants to create and cook a tasty dish with whatever they've won.

The show is open to both home cooks as well as seasoned professionals.

If you think you have the knowledge or the cooking skill to come out on top then we want to hear from you.
