Great British Menu

About the Show

Having established a reputation for providing an addictive insight into the highly-competitive world of fine dining, Great British Menu is back and the competition is fiercer than ever.  This year the chefs must plate up perfection, as they fight it out for the chance to cook at a glorious banquet marking 100 years of the Women’s Institute at London's historic Drapers Hall. The challenge is produce 21st-century dishes that honour the custodians of first-class home cooking, and pay tribute to the generations of women who have helped make Britain the great culinary nation it is today. The chefs have taken inspiration from the women in their families - their mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers - and the pioneering women of the Institute, to turn home-cooked classics into modern masterpieces.

Just watched the Welsh dessert edition and the final results on who gets to ccok for the judges. It was a joke, the judge had no idea and gave enough points to a guy who cooked Rice Pudding as a Summer banquet Dessert....What the....!!!!! Maybe he paid her enough to get through!!

Have to admit I think the judges are so far up themselves it's not funny. Please explain to me how a fellow chef can give a dish high marks and high praise and dopey Oliver 'bags' it. I live for the day the judges cook for the (Michelin starred) chefs and have their culinary 'delights' tasted and judged; sadly I know this won't happen but wouldn't you just love to see it and hear the comments!

I agree with Andrew. A Great Australian Menu would be fantastic. Especially in digging up some quality producers to small to get into the big markets.
But there is going to be a definite downside to an Aussie version if we get a silly production company putting it together, and that is the over inflated ego chefs that we see and hear to much of already - Perry, Evans, Moran, Bill, Manu, et al. *** off I've had enough.
Get out there and find some chefs who are cooks first, Puskas and Fassnidge come to mind.
Come on Rupert, make it happen.

My husband and I love most of the cooking shows, and this is probably our favourite. Each episode we have a little bet between ourselves as to which chef will win on the night (so far I'm in front). We also like to critique the judges, although most of the time they pretty well agree with our views.
