The ninth series of The Great British Menu marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day. The chefs must create dishes that evoke the wartime spirit of the generation as well as honour the bravery shown throughout the Second World War. Many D Day veterans will also take part as judges bringing their incredible experiences, personal memories and discerning taste buds to the judging chamber.
