Cooked
BBC Lifestyle
Friday, 8.25pm

The charming, charismatic (and South African) Justin Bonello returns with a brand new series in which he attempts to create a new brand of bush cooking. ­Bonello continues to ­describe himself as a cook rather than a chef, using only local ingredients and extreme cooking methods in order to bring his dishes to life. And he’s not bad to look at either.

The F-Word
BBC Lifestyle
Tuesday, 8.25pm

Gordon Ramsay’s F Word returns with an exciting new mission: a search across the UK for The F Word’s Best Local Restaurant.
The series celebrates the very best independent local restaurants with the help of nominations from thousands of restaurant-goers across the country ... of course, Ramsay’s off-the- wall antics only add to the flavour of this show.
