TONIGHT’S the night to find out whether a dish chosen by Mackem baker Stacie Stewart will rise to the challenge and win Simon Cowell’s cookery show.
For the past nine weeks, viewers have seen Stacie, 30, from Roker, and fellow Food Glorious Food judges Loyd Grossman, Tom Parker Bowles and Anne Harrison from the WI, choose their favourite recipes out of thousands submitted from around the country.
From the first episode, Stacie has championed a Pimm’s summer jelly which was invented by a group of Gloucestershire students.
It will go head to head in the final against a white chicken korma, submitted by a Yorkshire law teacher.
The winner will scoop £20,000 and will see their recipe on the shelves of Marks & Spencer. Stacie was chosen as a judge on the show after production company Syco, headed by Simon Cowell, was impressed by her outspoken views and passion for food.
Food Glorious Food will be on ITV tonight at 8pm.
