The artisan food challenge
From home brewing and smoking meat to hand-made cheeses, jams and chocolates, the world is in the midst of an artisan food revolution and Top of the Shop with Tom Kerridge aims to discover the finest new food products around.
Over seven heats and a finale, this uplifting, knock-out series pits small scale artisan food producers against each other. They are offered the opportunity to take over a specialist food shop to sell and show off their finely crafted produce. In each themed episode, four producers with similar products hope to tempt local shoppers with their delicious treats but will cold pressed coffee prove to be just too trendy for the tea drinking locals?
Alongside two Michelin-starred chef and presenter Tom Kerridge, food writer and restaurateur Nisha Katona and artisan expert Alison Swan Parente, assess whether their creations have what it takes to sustain a profitable business. But crucially, it’s not just the judges the producers have to impress – making sales in the shop and appealing to the taste buds, and wallets, of the local community are just as important if their product is to be awarded the coveted best in shop title.
