Global producer, distributor and content creator Endemol Shine Group announced that Endemol Shine Italy is creating a brand-new cookery format for Sky which will be known internationally as “Cook Academy”. The 6x60’ series will air on Sky Uno and stream on Now TV, hosted by renowned chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo.

The format will see ten young aspiring chefs follow an intense training course with tasks set by Chef Cannavacciuolo that will test both their professional and personal skills in order to prove worthy of a place in the kitchen of one of the most exclusive restaurants in Italy: Villa Crespi. Once there they will prepare dishes based on what they have learnt under the guidance of Cannavacciuolo, as well as via lessons held by guest chefs and experts in different subjects related to the world of catering. At the end of each test the chefs will be assigned a score, the sum of which will determine their final classification, and the contestant who scores the least points will be forced to leave the Academy.

“We are hugely proud to add ‘Cook Academy’ to our slate of successful cookery shows and can’t wait to introduce Italian audiences, who are food fanatics, to a brand-new series. Antonino Cannavacciuolo is a world famous, hugely talented and much beloved chef and the perfect person to put our new recruits through their paces,”  Leonardo Pasquinelli, CEO of Endemol Shine Italy, said.

Lisa Perrin, CEO Creative Networks for Endemol Shine Group, commented: “At Endemol Shine Group we have an unrivalled reputation for creating fresh new food formats and turning them into global, returning smash hits. We’re super excited by the launch of ‘Cook Academy’ and look forward to serving it up internationally”.
