SIMON Cowell is chewing the fat with TV bosses about a talent show about cooking.

He is understood to be in discussions with ITV about a series called Food Glorious Food in which he aims to find the best British dish.

It would see the winner land a cash prize and the meal would be available to buy through retailer Marks & Spencer.

The programme, which would involve a series of regional heats before the TV finals, would air in February of next year, according to a source.

The cooks would have to convince experts that the dish had a strong British story behind it.

A formal announcement is expected later this month.

It is the latest talent show in Cowell's roster. He is already behind The X Factor, Britain's Got Talent and a new series aimed at finding skilled DJs.
