Show Summary
Incredibly there are over 1000 new restaurants that open every year in Britain, more than any other kind of business, unfortunately 900 close within a year.

It’s a dream that every couple has entertained. Why? Because secretly we all think we could do it. It’s so simple. Lots of us can cook, we’ve all been to restaurants and we all think we know what people like to eat, if only we had the money and the opportunity.

For nine couples that opportunity has arrived. Britain’s most celebrated restaurateur Raymond Blanc is going to give them a chance to make their dream come true.

The chance to go into the restaurant business with Raymond.

Nine couples who dream of running their own restaurant will each be given a business in nine different locations.

They have to create their perfect restaurant and then open the doors to the paying public.

Every decision, every mistake they make, every argument they have, will be caught on camera. They are working and living together 24 hours a day.

Every week each restaurant is visited by Raymond Blanc's two inspectors. Drawing on their feedback and his own observations, Raymond selects the three poorest performing restaurants and sets them a specific challenge. One of these restaurants will be closed at the end of the week.

After seven weeks just one couple and one restaurant is left open. The winners get a prize that money can not buy - they will go into the restaurant business with Raymond and run their own place.
