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.
In this final challenge for top chefs Paul Rankin and Richard Phillips, they get the chance to cook their own style of food for a roomful of specially invited guests at a country house hotel. In the ultimate chef showdown, they go head-to-head with one starter, one main course and one dessert each. The exacting customers will choose between the two menus and whoever makes the most profit wins. Because the chefs choose the cooking style, expectations are higher than ever. Who will make the most profit to win the day and ultimately who will have made the most money across the week?
