Great British Menu 2012, Final Banquet Preview

by Mecca Ibrahim 04 June 2012

For the last eight weeks in the seventh series of The Great British Menu we've watched twenty four of Britain's finest chefs battle it out. Now eight chefs are hoping they'll be representing their region to serve at an Olympic banquet at the end of the week.

This week (starting 4th June 2012) we will finally get to see who will go through to cook at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. Here's a round up of the chefs in the final. Nathan Outlaw who won the South West round. Joining Alan Murchison who won the Scottish round, Daniel Clifford who won the Central round, Colin McGurran who won the North East round, Chris Fearon who won the Northern Ireland round, Simon Rogan who won the North West round, Phil Howard who won the London and South East round and Stephen Terry who won the Wales round.

In Monday's show the finalists prepare their starters, to be tasted and scored by the Great British Menu judges and veteran judge Richard Corrigan.

On Tuesday, the remaining finalists cook their fish dishes, which will be tasted and scored by the Great British Menu judges and veteran judge Marcus Wareing.

On Wednesday, the chosen finalists will prepare their main courses, with veteran judge Tom Kerridge tasting and scoring alongside the other Great British Menu judges.

On Thursday it's the final chance to impress the judges with desserts. The Great British Menu judges will be joined by veteran judge Angela Hartnett.

On Friday, the four winners will have been announced and the final show follows the successful chefs in the run-up to the banquet. You'll see their painstaking preparations for what is likely to be one of the most important meals they will ever cook.

Plus don't forget our special Great British Menu Recipe Collection. The definitive collection of recipes for Great British Menu fans, featuring old favourites like Nigel Haworth's Lancashire hotpot, Lisa Allen's rabbit turnover and Paul Ainsworth's Taste of the Fairground, as well as newer classics from Great British Menu 2012 like Daniel Clifford's stuffed red mullet dish and Alan Murchison's veal sweetbreads.

We wish all competing chefs the best of luck in the run up to the banquet.
