Top chef and restaurateur John Torode and food writer and ingredients expert Gregg Wallace are searching for the country's best amateur cook.

The 12 contestants, picked from thousands of hopeful amateurs, face three high-pressure tests to see who has the passion, the skill and the creativity to make it to the quarter finals.

In the first heat the contestants face the pressure of the professional kitchen at Le Pont De La Tour, and in the second they must master Indian tapas at Imli.
