Making A Meal Of It

Food TV – Saturdays from 3 May, 8.30pm

Running a restaurant seems like a dream job and as chefs become more like celebrities everyone wants a slice of this 30 billion pound pie. Making A Meal Of It gives a couple the chance to live the dream and run a restaurant for real. Each day a different couple are given their own restaurant, a restaurant team and even money for supplies. They have to take these ingredients and produce a lunch and dinner service for 40 hungry diners. There’s up to £1000 per day to be made and the couple who makes the most money that week can take home the week’s ‘pot’ of up to £5000 – as only one couple gets the entire week’s takings. But it’s the diners who decide how much they would pay for the meal so the couple could walk away with nothing.
