ITV cookery programme “There’s No Taste Like Home” in a competition to find the best home cooked meal from three local home cooks.

Waterhead played host to TV chef Gino D’Acampo and film crew in March and the results can be seen at 4pm November 3 on ITV1.

The yet to be revealed winning dish will then have the honour of being featured on the Waterhead’s menu for a whole month after the programme airs.

The show aims to celebrate unsung traditional family recipes and prove they can still have a place in modern restaurants.

Barbara Baty, 59, from Carlisle; Cecelia Campbell, 47, from Grasmere and Andrew Sharp, 47, from Ambleside all had to impress with their choice of home cooked dishes.

Paying diners at Waterhead had to judge between the three dishes before Gino awarded the winner a coveted place on the restaurant’s menu.

Mark Needham, general manager of the Waterhead, said: “It was great fun having Gino and the crew here filming and the diners really got into the spirit of the occasion.

”We can’t wait to have the winning dish on the menu and expect it to go down really well with customers.”

Waterhead is a boutique hotel on the shores of Windermere with an award winning restaurant that has views over the lake.

The restaurant has just been given a modern makeover and transformed into a new bar and grill with a fresh new menu that uses the best local produce to serve up classic bistro dishes with a creative twist.
