Great British Menu 2013, Scotland Heat Preview

by Mecca Ibrahim 02 February 2013

For week two it's the turn of Scotland to raise a laugh on The Great British Menu to celebrate the fun of Comic Relief. The three chefs will be creating a menu that is not only excellent food, but has to make the judges smile too.

More from this series:

Mecca is Head of Marketing & Social Media at Great British Chefs.

Twenty four of the finest chefs in the country including many chefs from Great British Chefs site are competing in eight regional heats for the opportunity to create a four course menu at special banquet at the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate 25 years of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day.

As with previous years, the show follows the familiar format with three chefs from each region cooking a starter, fish course, main course and dessert for a veteran judge who will select two chefs to cook their menu again on Friday's show for the judges Matthew Fort, Oliver Peyton & Prue Leith. On Friday the three judges will be joined by a comedian or comedy writer to see how funny the dishes really are.

Representing Scotland are Michael Smith (who recently joined Great British Chefs site) from The Three Chimneys in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, consultant chef, Tony Singh and Edinburgh's Mark Greenaway from Restaurant Mark Greenaway. All three chefs are veterans to the show, but it'll be the first time that laughter is part of the brief.

Monday's episode leads with starters. There's a warm chicken salad with a twist, spiced ham and rabbit terrine.

Monty Python is the inspiration for Tony Singh's dish.

Fish courses on Tuesday include traditional Scottish soup Cullen Skink, mackerel and a chowder.

On Wednesday the chefs will be tempting judge & mentor Angela Hartnett with a beef dish inspired by a cartoon, goat tagine and Mark will be presenting a duck dish with a comedy twist.

Thursday it's desserts and the menus include a sumptuous chocolate dessert, doughnuts with a Scottish twist and a comedy custard pie!

We hope you'll be watching the Scottish heat when it starts at 7.30pm each weekday night on BBC2 from 4th February 2013. At Great British Chefs we'll be cheering on Michael for the week ahead.
