Come Dine With Me: The Professionals 








Come Dine With Me is to launch a spin-off series featuring professional chefs and restaurateurs.

Channel 4 will broadcast a new version of the amateur cookery show, in which contestants try to throw the best three-course dinner party, this time focusing on local restaurants. 

Each episode will feature three local eateries, each represented by a partnership of two – such as the owner and head chef – vying for a cash prize shared among their staff and to be named the best of their town, county or city. 

They will host their rivals for a meal during normal service, so their visitors will be able to assess the atmosphere, food and quality of service. 

At the end of each meal, the pairs will score the evening out of 20 in a similar manner to the original version of the show. 

Narrator Dave Lamb will return to his humorous observations and scathing criticism of the contestants’ food and interior design. 

Jo Street, Channel 4’s head of daytime and features, said: “Come Dine With Me continues to be one of Channel 4’s best loved programmes with many memorable dinners served all over the UK in over 2,000 episodes. 

“CDWM: The Professionals promises to really raise the stakes and we’re delighted to dish up this new extension on Channel 4 in 2022 to complement existing favourites Come Dine With Me and Couples Come Dine With Me.”
