Rachel Allen: Home Cooking

If you think family food is bland and boring and always head to restaurants for your foodie kicks then you and your family are, quite literally, missing a treat. Staying in is the new going out, and over the new series, chef Rachel Allen will be proving why.

Rachel will be tempting us with a host of mouth-wateringly delicious home-cooked recipes that the whole family will adore, from snacks and starters to roasts and puds, there is something scrumptious here for everyone.

As well as sharing her latest delectable recipes from her home in east Cork, Rachel will be running her own cookery school where viewers can learn to cook along with seven lucky families who will be getting the very best tips and secrets from Rachel herself.

Rachel will also be out and about visiting the homes of the most exciting, innovative and creative chefs across the UK to find out what they cook for their own families, including Galton Blackiston (Morston Hall), Jason Atherton (Maze), Atul Kochhar (Benares) and Gennaro Contaldo (Jamie's Italian).

So get your apron on and turn your oven up high - the family's home and they're hungry.
