Singer Damien Leith will host New Idea Test Kitchen, the new cookery and craft show to air nationally on 7TWO and Seven from next month.
The show will feature recipes for Christmas and summer entertaining, will road test kitchen gadgets and give information about fresh produce. Each week a celebrity will also shop for ingredients and whip up one of their favourite meals.
New Idea’s food director, Barbara Northwood and food editor, Pamela Jones, will also be cooking alongside Leith in the kitchen.
Kim Wilson, Editor in Chief, New Idea commented, “We know how passionate our readers are about food and cooking, so we’re thrilled to bring the pages to life and be able to offer yet another way for Australians to feast on the magazine’s content in this dynamic format.”
“I’m just thrilled, excited and can’t wait,” Leith added.
This is the second format for the magazine following New Idea TV.
