UKTV gets government funds for food show

June 4, 2009

As part of UKTV’s rebranding of its channels, UKTV Food became Good Food, and so far it has not been such a bad idea as the Food Standards Agency is putting funds into a new family cooking competition on the channel.

The ‘Family Cook Off’ is a programme that is being made by the same team behind the successful BBC cookery show ‘Masterchef’.

This is the first time that the government or a government funded agency has directly put money into the producing of a television programme.

Family Cook Off will feature two teams of family members, and the object of the game is for them to produce a nutritious meal.

The overall winners will be crowned Britain’s Best Cooking Family.
