Great British Menu, Series 6 Episode 8 of 45

In Great British Menu, the nation's top chefs are being challenged to cook for the ultimate street party: The People's Banquet.

The chefs are battling to create spectacular sharing platters, dishes that will get everyone talking, proving that food has the power to bring us all together. If they win, their dishes will be paraded down the ancient cobbled streets of London's Leadenhall Market and served at a magnificent street party: a banquet for the people and inspired by the people.

Each week three chefs battle it out in the kitchen for a chance to cook at the banquet, and a veteran of the competition tastes and scores their dishes every day. The pressure is on, as only two chefs can make it through to cook for the Great British Menu judges at the end of the week, and one will be going home on Thursday.

The chefs from Northern Ireland battle it out with their main courses. Chris Bell, Brian McCann and Chris Fearon are determined to win, and prepare the following dishes: roast crown of lamb, potato bake, asparagus, peas, morels and new season onions, 'my fancy dressed piggy', broken down in five ways, roast loin, crackling, crispy fritter, sticky ribs, black pudding and apple tartlet; and suckling pig, hash brown, crab apples and sage.
