The Best is a contemporary food show offering viewers the best possible ways to cook and eat well. Cooking together in their urban kitchen, chefs Paul Merrett and Ben O'Donoghue and cook Silvana Franco combine their collective passion and expertise to offer three very different solutions to the challenges they're set.
The first challenge involves a quick and easy dish and the second focuses on a main ingredient. As they create their three very different twists on each dish, Silvana, Paul and Ben are also competing against each other. Each week in this ten-part series, a different panel of tasters judge which dish is the best and throughout, the three cooks offer invaluable tips on choosing, sourcing and cooking the ingredients.
Silvana’s accessible approach to food suggests recipes that take the minimum of time, fuss, and cost, but still look good and taste great; Ben’s global influences and passion for using the best ingredients mean his dishes are stunning yet simple to make; and Paul reveals restaurant secrets that will inspire you and impress your friends and family.
