Jayde Adams to host Netflix & Channel 4 show Crazy Delicious

It’s all go for the Funny Women Awards winners today! 2014 winner Jayde Adams will be presenting a brand new show, an innovative and imaginative food competition set on the world’s first edible set. In a culture where many British families eat the same meals every week, this show aims to inspire viewers to turn everyday dishes into Crazy Delicious creations. Jayde will be joined by chefs Heston Blumenthal, Carla Hall and Niklas Ekstedt who will take on the roles of ‘Food Gods’ in Channel 4 and Netflix’s magical food competition, Crazy Delicious.

Each week, three passionate and inventive cooks work magic with commonplace ingredients, such as the humble carrot, some of which they will pick, pluck and snip from an enchanted garden on the stunning Crazy Delicious set which also contains edible blossom, chocolate soil, and a drinkable babbling brook. Inspired by the vibrant and viral world of #foodporn, the competition challenges the cooks to create dishes that are both a taste sensation and a feast for the eyes.

Crazy Delicious is presided over by world-renowned Gods of Food, Heston Blumenthal, Carla Hall and Niklas Ekstedt. The trio sit amongst the clouds and judge which ingenious cook will reign victorious and be awarded the golden apple.

Together, the gods judge the concept, visual appeal and taste of each dish, with their complement of expertise combining to choose their favourite creation. While British chef Heston Blumenthal is known for putting science into cookery to create surprising and elaborate dishes, famed American chef Carla Hall is passionate about soul food and cooking with love, with renowned Swedish chef and restaurateur Niklas Ekstedt valuing the simplicity of ingredients and traditional techniques.

As the competitive cooks create new takes on recognisable meals such as chicken pie and pizza, presenter Jayde Adams oversees the garden, speaking to the competitors about their recipes as they go about making their extraordinary culinary innovations.

Jayde Adams commented: “This show is like nothing you’ve seen before, from the incredible, edible set to the crazy and delicious meals created by our cooks. I love food and working with real-life food gods Heston, Carla and Niklas has been brilliant, I’ve learnt so much as well as being able to try so much wonderful food. I said to the universe a year ago that I wanted to host a food show and here it is! I feel like one of the luckiest women in the world. I cannot wait for you all to see it.”

Crazy Delicious will air on Channel 4, and be available on Netflix worldwide (excluding UK), in early 2020.
