Nine’s upcoming food reality series, as first revealed by TV Tonight, now has a name: The Hot Plate.
The stripped Endemol-produced series will feature UK food writer and critic, Tom Parker Bowles (pictured) -son of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. He was previously a judge on the ITV Food series Food Glorious Food.
He will judge the series alongside Melbourne restaurateur Scott Pickett.
Nine exec Andrew Backwell told News Corp, “The Hot Plate is an exciting new original food format and we are thrilled to have Tom and Scott on board with their top notch culinary pedigrees.”
Details of the mystery format are being kept under wraps, but the series is expected to see state-based restaurants with teams travelling the country to dine in and score each others’ restaurants.
