Tonight's hour-long episode sees the finalists face a double whammy of a challenge: first up is a Â£60,000 three-course dinner for 200 special guests at the opening of the Burghley Horse Trials. Next they must cook for eight of the world's best chefs - holders of 16 Michelin stars between them.
Delia, Jamie, Gordon, Nigella, Rick, Gary and Antony - their fame is such that many of us know them by their first names alone. The Money Programme goes behind the scenes of their various empires to find out how these seven individuals turned their cooking skills into vast multimillion-pound businesses and international brands, taking British cooking from the joke book into the record books in the process.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
