Great British Menu 2017 Finals Fish ep.42

 It is finals week and the competition reaches its thrilling climax. The eight winning regional chefs now battle it out for the honour of a spot on this year's banquet menu, celebrating 140 years of the iconic Wimbledon Championships. The regional champions now face each other for the first time in the kitchen.


Each day, they cook one of their courses for the discerning panel of judges - Matthew Fort, Andi Oliver and Oliver Peyton. They are joined by a host of guest judges who know what it takes to be a Wimbledon champion.

 The chefs need to convince the judges that their dish is worthy of a place on the final menu and that they have listened to any feedback the judges gave them in the regional heats. At the end of each round, when all the dishes have been cooked, the points are added together and the highest scoring chef wins the honour of cooking that course at the Wimbledon banquet.

 Today the chefs cook their fish courses but with some exceptionally high scoring dishes in the regional heats, each chef needs to deliver perfection in order to see off the competition.
The judges are joined by guest judge Tim Henman, former British number one, who competed in Wimbledon's semi-final on four separate occasions and now commentates for the BBC.
