Yes Chef is brand new BBC One Daytime series hosted by Sheree Murphy in which 16 chefs – all with Michelin stars to their name – mentor amateur home cooks to do battle in the kitchen.

For the amateurs, it’s a chance to work alongside the best in the business. For the professionals, it’s an opportunity to train their partner and lead them to victory in an industry where ego is king.

Monday to Thursday sees a different chef put four home cooks through their paces in a series of challenges, with each day’s winner going forward to Friday’s final.

In the final, the four professional chefs will pair up with their winning home cook to go head-to-head in the ultimate professional-amateur cooking showdown. And to pile on the pressure, culinary royalty – in the form of three-star Michelin chef Pierre Koffmann – will judge their final dishes. Only one duo will reign supreme each week and claim the title as champions of Yes Chef.

“The professional chefs are at the forefront of gastronomy in the UK,” says Pierre Hoffmann. “This is a chance for home cooks to learn from the best in the business.”

Yes Chef was recorded on location at the Cheshire Cookery School in Altrincham. It is on BBC One at 3.45pm. The episodes featuring Aiden Byrne will be broadcast on the 13 and 16 September.

The other chefs in the series are Atul Kochhar, Bryn Williams, Frances Atkins, Galton Blackiston, Luke Tipping, Mary Ann Gilchrist, Matt Gillan, Michael O’Hare, Nathan Outlaw, Nigel Haworth, Paul Ainsworth, Rupert Rowley, Ryan Simpson, Stephen Terry and Theo Randall.
