Great British Menu 2017 Finals Starter ep.41

 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.
With finals week ahead of them, judge Andi Oliver first summons the chefs to Wimbledon to take a look at where they could be cooking if they win.

 Back in the kitchen, it is down to the chefs to prepare their starters. With three returning finalists, including former banquet winner Tommy Banks, taking on a host of chefs who have made it this far for the first time, the competition is fierce. The judges are joined by guest judge Sue Barker, host of the BBC's Wimbledon coverage for more than 20 years and a former British number one.
