Series 15: 13. Episode 13

After four weeks of fierce competition in the heats, the amateur cooks have been whittled down to just 16. Tonight, the heat dials up a notch for these talented cooks as they come together for the first time to cook against each other across two shows.

In tonight’s episode the amateurs are split into two groups – the blue group and the red group – with eight cooks in each. Both groups face a daunting cook-off based on a brief given by John and Gregg. Their challenge is to create one dish inspired by a personal or family favourite recipe. After cooking, John and Gregg will decide who’s good enough to continue in the competition.
