You can catch me again on BBC TWO’s Great British Menu which is back later in the summer and this year the chefs must plate up perfection, as they fight it out for the chance to cook at a glorious banquet marking 100 years of the Women’s Institute at London’s historic Drapers Hall.
The challenge is to produce 21st century dishes that honour the custodians of first class home cooking, and pay tribute to the generations of women who have helped make Britain the great culinary nation it is today. The chefs have taken inspiration from the women in their families – their mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers – and the pioneering women of the Institute, to turn home-cooked classics, into modern masterpieces.
I will be competing for the central region against Pip Lacey (Murano) and Jason Hodnett (Raven Hotel)
The Great British Menu Veterans who’ll be judging the chefs are:
Restaurant Sat Bains, Nottingham
Midsummer House, Cambridge
Corrigan’s Mayfair & Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill, London
The Square, London
The Hand & Flowers, Marlow
The Three Chimneys, Isle of Skye
