New series. Tom Kerridge challenges eight families to ditch convenience food and cook from scratch at home, as he believes it will make them fitter, happier and healthier. In the opening episode, Tom meets the eight volunteer families for the first time, and introduces them to the plan he wants them to follow for the next 12 weeks. The first step of his plan is to simply get the families cooking more, and he presents all the families with a starter pack of easy recipes and the ingredients for sausage and mash. Later, Tom prepares two dishes to inspire the group, a tomato salad packed with Mediterranean flavours, and a chicken and peanut stirfry.
