STV viewers can soon feast their eyes on brand new cooking series Jak and Eddie's Scottish Kitchen, starting Monday 28 March at 8pm.
 
The mouth watering show is hosted by Great British Menu contestant and owner of The Sisters restaurants in Glasgow, chef Jak O'Donnell and Eddie Boyle, head baker at Whole Foods Market in Glasgow.
 
Jam packed with tasty recipes and inspiration for foodies, the series sees Jak and Eddie welcome a host of celebrities to the studio as they cook up delicious meals for their guests.
 
First to join Jak and Eddie are popular presenter Carol Smillie and STV political editor Bernard Ponsonby, who will tuck into citrus salmon and warm beetroot salad, followed by a chocolate, hazelnut and salted caramel tart.
 
The following week, journalist and broadcaster Tam Cowan and entertainment journalist Bev Lyons pop in for dinner and a chat, with steak pie and boozy rhubarb crumble on the menu.
                                            
In episode three, Jak and Eddie cook up a storm for comedian and presenter Des McLean and legendary children's TV presenter Glen Michael, who enjoy cullen skink and bakewell tart.
                                            
Finally, singer Nicholas McDonald of X-Factor fame and singer-songwriter Horse McDonald feast on roast beef on creamed wild mushrooms, caramelised onions and spiced sweet potato chips, followed by date pudding with caramel sauce.                          
 
The popular cooking series was launched on STV's city TV channels, STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh, last year and is now moving to a peak time slot on STV, available to viewers across Scotland.
 
Jak and Eddie’s Scottish Kitchen will be available to watch live or on catch-up on the STV Player.
 
Viewers at home can access all recipes from the show on stv.tv/jakandeddie.
 
Jak O’Donnell said: “I’m really excited about showcasing the best that the Scottish kitchen can bring to STV viewers.”
 
Elizabeth Partyka, deputy director of channels at STV, said: “Jak and Eddie's Scottish Kitchen is essential viewing for foodies and anyone looking to be inspired in the kitchen for a special occasion. I’m excited to bring the show to STV where it will find a whole new audience and I think viewers will really enjoy this appetising mix of tasty cooking, great guests and chat.”
