Two Best Loved Chefs Will Compete In This Season’s Great British Menu

BBC Two’s Great British Menu will be back again this year for Season 11, and we are delighted to have two Best Loved chefs in competition.

Tommy Banks from Black Swan at Oldstead will be representing the North East in the regional competitions and Andrew Birth from Fishmore Hall in Ludlow will be representing Wales.

In the regional heats, dishes will be judged by a team of former winners who are now among the most acclaimed chefs in the UK. The top two from each region will then present their dishes to judges Matthew Fort, Prue Leith and Oliver Peyton, who will pick an overall winner.

The eight regional winners will then have the chance to cook for the banquet held in the House of Commons Members Dining Room – the first time the Palace of Westminster has opened its doors for a live televised banquet. This exceptional banquet will be in honour of Queen Elizabeth’s ‘Great Britons’ – men and women from all walks of life who have been honoured in the Queen’s Birthday or New Year honours list for their outstanding dedication to charity, community or the service of their country.

More information on exact airing times will be forthcoming – stay tuned!
