Do you have what it takes to become Britain’s best home cook? If so, you could be what a hit BBC primetime TV series are looking for.

The production company behind the channel’s show will be on the hunt for contestants for the new series of ‘Britain’s Best Home Cook’ at the Wrexham Food and Drink Festival – which returns to the town centre later this month.

Queen of home cooking and television legend Mary Berry, produce expert Chris Bavin, top chef Dan Doherty and presenter Claudia Winkleman are back and will be judging the next group of contestants who will battle it out for the title of Britain’s Best Home Cook, with the hope people from Wrexham will be featured in the next series.

This year Wrexham’s Food and Drink Festival has undergone a reboot; bringing with it a host of exhibitors, live entertainment and a fireworks display.

Taking place on Llwyn Isaf on Saturday the 22nd of September and Sunday the 23rd, this year’s event has been organised by a team of local businesses in partnership with This is Wrexham.

Sam Regan, of the This Is Wrexham Tourism Partnership who are putting on the event said : “When we heard Britain’s Best Home Cook wanted to come along and look for Wrexham’s foodies we immediately said yes, we will have a range of traders on the day not just selling food and drink to eat but also ingredients.

“There are demo kitchens and cookery school sessions too, so the perfect combination would be Mary Berry selecting a Wrexham home cook winner using skills and food they discovered at the Festival!”

Organisers have created new discounted weekend tickets to make it cheaper than ever for anyone wanting to attend both days, along with family ticket promotions that have gone live on www.WrexhamFoodFestival.wales and promotions on @WrexhamFood on social media.

The This is Wrexham Food and Drink Festival will take place until 9pm on Saturday 22nd September – before culminating in a firework display. The festival will be open until 6pm on Sunday 23rd September.

Wrexham Council have also announced free parking across all car parks owned by them for the weekend of the 22nd September that the Festival is on.
