Great British Menu is back, and the competition is fiercer than ever as the nation's top chefs are being challenged to cook for the ultimate street party.
Last summer, the best part of million people took part in The Big Lunch - a nationwide one-day event that encourages people to cook and eat with their neighbours.
Inspired by this, our 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, for a magnificent street party: The People's Banquet.
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 the north west - Lisa Allen, Bruno Birkbeck and Johnnie Mountain - battle it out with their main courses. Johnnie Mountain, Lisa Allen and Bruno Birkbeck are determined to win but which dish will take poll position? Will it be: stuffed saddle of Southdown lamb with broad beans, peas, asparagus and truffle; barbecued 'beer can' cornfed chicken, summer beans and tear and share bread or Kitridding farm hay-baked leg of lamb, mini shepherd's pie?
