Chef Nigella Lawson is bringing her hit US cookery contest The Taste to Channel 4.

In The Taste, contestants must impress blindfolded judges with just a spoonful of food, meaning the judges could send home members of their own team.

The show features team and individual challenges and weekly eliminations.

The 10-part series will see Lawson reunited with chefs Anthony Bourdain and Ludo Lefebvre, who worked with her as mentors and judges on the US show.

The Taste will mark the first time Lawson has worked with Channel 4 in a decade.

Channel 4's Head of Formats, Dominic Bird, said: "I'm thrilled that Nigella is returning to Channel 4 alongside Anthony and Ludo. The Taste promises to be a hugely exciting and compelling competition with stellar talent and exceptional cooking at its heart."

The series will be shown on Channel 4 next year, with the broadcaster also set to screen the US version of the show.
