Perfect... about the show

Which world class chef is the master of the perfect roast? Which top foodie can pull off perfect Italian cuisine every time? We'll find out in Perfect... , the show which invites two great cooking icons to pit their perfect dishes against each other.

Each episode will focus on a particular cuisine or type of food, and over three rounds two chefs famed for their utterly delicious food will challenge each other to be crowned king or queen of the chosen genre – it might be roasts, pies, picnics or puddings.

Top chefs including Ken Hom, Allegra McEvedy, Maria Elia and Mark Sargeant will cook on adjacent hobs, taking turns to explain what they're doing and how it will make their dish the best. A specially selected judging panel - we're talking butchers for the roasts, the Women's Institute for the cakes, and so on - will taste each dish and decide which one comes out on top.

The chefs' infectious enthusiasm and years of experience will deliver the inspiration and secrets needed to turn every good cook in to a great one.

And because every dish is something that viewers will be able to make at home, we'll all be cooking Perfect dinners before long...

From the land down under: I love watching your show - such a perfect mix of competition and camaraderie. The dishes are interesting and delicious and I love watching them being created. But what I find most perfect is the lack of bitchiness and put-downs between the competing chefs - they seem to always be generous in their comments and support of each other - that is so refreshing in these days of "reality" shows. It's hard to decide which chef I like best!

Hi do you ever have ordinary people as your judges. I am a keen cook and I have been following your programme and love it. We have tried several of the recipes and even paused the programme one night to make the simple brunch of french toast and caramalised bananas and watched the remaining show whilst munching the delicious meal. I would love to take part and give my opinion and score the chefs.

I'm having friends over for nibbles & stuff but one of them is coeliac. I'd like to have a variety of food that she can eat too without getting sick! Please help!

Is there a marker somewhere to indicate which course won the judges vote please? I am really enjoying the series but cant remember who won which round when I come to look at the recipes.
