Series 9

Episode 41: Finals Starter

Duration: 1 hour

First broadcast: on BBC Two HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Two England

It's finals week on Great British Menu as the victorious regional chefs do battle for a place on the banquet menu. The winners will cook their dishes at a reception for WWII heroes commemorating 70 years since the D-Day landings, held at St Paul's Cathedral, a bastion of British wartime resilience.

Each day, the chefs must cook one of their four courses again to impress not only the judges Matthew Fort, Oliver Peyton and Prue Leith, but also a banquet guest of honour who has memories of the war, and their fellow chefs, who will also be marking the dishes.

The three top-scoring creations will be placed on that course's shortlist and be in contention for the banquet. The final menu will be chosen by the judges from the dishes on the shortlists, so to be in with a chance of cooking at St Paul's, the chefs have to secure a place in the top three.

In this episode, it's the starter course and as the chefs arrive, they discover there's added competition following the London and South East region's shock result. The judges are joined by D-Day veteran George Batts, a royal engineer who landed on Gold Beach and who helped judge the North West heats. With the chefs all determined to start the week strongly and secure their first place on the banquet shortlist, who will make it into the top three? Show less
