Matthew, Samuel and Edward Pigott were runners-up in the final of 2017’s The Great Family Cooking Showdown on BBC2. Masters of meat and outdoor cookery and influenced by cuisines from all over the world, the Pigotts impressed the judges with their big, bold flavours and dishes such as Jerk Chicken Kebabs and Flatbreads, Smoked Chilli Pork Tacos with Apple and Avocado Salsa, and Baked Beans with Bubble and Squeak Hash Browns, which judge Georgio Locatelli described as ‘The best cooked breakfast I have ever tasted’.
Originally from Banbury in Oxfordshire and now living in Manchester (Sam), London (Matt) and Birmingham (Ed) the Pigotts meet whenever they can to shop for ingredients and cook elaborate meals together. They specialise in food for sharing, street food and barbecues, and are particularly interested in Spanish, Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese and Indian cuisines. Dab hands at DIY, they also build their own cooking equipment such as barbecues and rotisseries.
The brothers are a big draw at live events and have appeared at Blenheim Palace Food Festival, Malton Food Festival and RHS Tatton Park. They have also starred in an ad campaign for Campo Viejo Wine featured on The Guardian website www.theguardian.com/lifes-made-for-sharing/video/2018/sep/10/a-picture-taken-a-memory-shared-the-pigott-brothers-video
