About the series - Recipe for Success
Mentor in this series of Recipe for Success is Oliver Peyton
Mayo man, Peyton has profited from his many business ventures from nightclubs to drink imports. He now owns a string of successful London restaurants and cafés and a chain of bakeries called Peyton and Byrne.
Each week our budding entrepreneurs will be advised on all aspects of the food business, from perfecting the concept to testing feasibility, refining the recipe and ultimately, pitching to Supervalu chiefs in a bid to have their dish scaled up for mass production.
In the sixth programme the final five participants will design their own packaging and learn the tricks of the trade from a food stylist and a food photographer before facing the boardroom for the last time.
Over the course of the six shows, one recipe will be chosen and put into mass production by Supervalu, with the eventual winner getting an on-going royalty for as long as the product remains on the shelves.
