Great British Menu, Series 7 Episode 12 of 45

Duration: 29 minutes

Great British Menu continues as the nation's greatest chefs battle for the chance to cook a glittering Olympic banquet.

This summer, another chapter will be added to Britain's sporting history when London hosts the Summer Olympic Games. Great British Menu: The Olympic Feast will give some of our greatest chefs a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a very special feast to celebrate the games coming to our shores and showcase contemporary British cooking at its absolute best.

The chefs' task is to create a menu that captures the Olympic spirit - food that is breathtaking and awe-inspiring. Every great Olympian pushes their discipline on to new levels of excellence and that's the challenge for the 2012 Great British Menu chefs: can they create world-class, ground-breaking food that will celebrate the Olympic ideal?

This week it's the battle of the North East chefs - returning contender Stephanie Moon and newcomers Colin McGurran and Charlie Lakin. All of them are determined to knock out their rivals in the race to the banquet. Here, they cook their fish course; which one is going to be first off the blocks? Will it be Stephanie's 'see food', Charlie's beetroot marinated monkfish with cauliflower and sea radish, or Colin's mullet on the sea bed?

Also, Olympic hopefuls the Brownlee Brothers take time out to meet Stephanie and give her valuable tips on competing at the highest level.

Great British Menu veteran Nigel Howarth decides who goes through to the judges on Friday.
