Mn Pound Menu is out on Netflix

Attention foodies, fans of cooking shows, and fans of Dragons’ Den. “Mn Pound Menu” — one of the best cooking shows we’ve seen in quite some time — is now out on Netflix. The concept of the BBC 2-produced show blends the sensory culinary delight that comes with watching a good cooking show and the drama that comes with intense cooking competitions like Masterchef, with the business side thrown in there in the vein of Dragons’ Den.

The format: The show starts investors and restaurateurs gathering to pick restaurant concepts pitched by up and coming cooks. These cooks will then be given a pop-up restaurant to run for three days in a bid to impress the investors. After sampling the food, discussing the business plan and financials, and seeing the entrepreneurs manage a full day’s restaurant work, investors interested will make an offer at the end of the episode. You can view the trailer here (watch, runtime: 0:30).
