Great British Menu

Series 7

Episode 4: Scotland Dessert

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC HDLatest broadcast: on BBC One Wales

Great British Menu is back and the fight is on as some of 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 the chefs a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a special banquet to celebrate the Games coming to our shores and showcase contemporary British cooking at its absolute best.

Hosted by Sir Steve Redgrave, the Olympic Feast will honour the hopes and achievements of the country's sporting heroes, and it will be a glorious celebration of Britain's culinary talents.

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 is the challenge for the 2012 Great British Menu chefs - can they create world-class, groundbreaking food that will celebrate the Olympic ideal?

This time it is the battle of the Scottish chefs - returning contender Alan Murchison and newcomers Colin Buchan and Mark Greenaway. All of them are determined to knock out their rivals in the race to the banquet. This is the final chance to impress Great British Menu veteran Jeremy Lee with their dessert dishes - 'Going for Gold', modern-day Eton mess, and beetroot cake with chocolate mousse and fennel ice cream.

Jeremy will decide who goes through to the judges and who goes home. Show less
