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.

Ed Baines and Galton Blackiston cook in their own style for a roomful of specially invited guests. In the ultimate chef showdown they go head-to-head with one starter, one main course and one dessert each. Exacting customers will choose between the two menus and whoever makes more profit wins. Because they choose the cooking style, expectations are higher than ever. Who will win the day?
