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, groundbreaking food that will celebrate the Olympic ideal?
It's decision time for the chefs from the North East region. One chef left the competition on the previous day and only two remain to cook their entire menus for the Great British Menu judges Prue Leith, Matthew Fort and Oliver Peyton. The judges aren't easily pleased and only world-class cooking will do.
Only one chef can make it through to the national finals to represent the North East region and get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cook at a glittering Olympic banquet.
If they win, one of their dishes could be on the menu at the Olympic Feast, a stunning dinner hosted by Sir Steve Redgrave, to honour the hopes and achievements of Britain's sporting heroes, willing them on to success in the Olympic Games and celebrating our country's extraordinary culinary talents.
