Big Cook, Little Cook to return to CBeebies

Big Cook Little Cook CBeebies

Children’s cookery programme Big Cook, Little Cook is set to return to CBeebies after nearly 20 years.

Dot to Dot Productions has been commissioned to make a revamped series of the show for CBeebies, which is based at MediaCity in Salford, with new talent. 

The show is aimed at pre-school children and will be presented by Big Cook Jen, who is played by Ibinabo Jack, and Little Cook Small, played by Courtney Bowman.

Each episode aims to take the viewer on an educational, comical journey and features a ‘make’, animation and a location piece shot in fields and factories around the UK.

Jo Killingley creator and Executive Producer said:  “We made the original iconic ‘Big Cook Little Cook’ nearly 20 years ago, it was the most fun series I’ve ever worked on. With brand new talent in 2022, it’s continuing to be a joy. We’re celebrating British ingredients and food producers, plus a host of World recipes. We’re hoping this will be a delicious treat for kids and their grown up helpers and encourage everyone to pick up a wooden spoon and create some magic in the kitchen (and maybe a little mess!)”
