The ultimate culinary challenge for Britain's top chefs. Two chefs go head-to-head buying food, preparing dishes and selling them to diners at some of the country's most diverse and high-end restaurants. Selling more dishes than their rival and winning the competition has never been more important.
The chefs putting their own money and reputations on the line are John Burton-Race, Nick Nairn, Gino D'Acampo, Aldo Zilli, James Tanner, Paul Rankin, Ed Baines, Atul Kochhar, Richard Phillips and Galton Blackiston.
John Burton Race and Atul Kochhar take each other on. Their challenge takes them onto a ferry on the River Thames. Cooking in this functional kitchen will be the least of their worries, as they have to produce food that a room full of exacting guests will want to order: one starter, one main course and one dessert each. The diners choose between the dishes, and whoever makes the most profit wins. The question is, who will win over their dinner guests, and who will make the most money across the week?
