Great British Menu 2017 Northern Ireland Starter ep.36

 Great British Menu continues as the nation's top chefs compete for a chance to show off their culinary skills at the Taste of Summer banquet honouring 140 years of the iconic Wimbledon Championships. There is only one spot left in the national finals and it is the turn of the chefs from Northern Ireland to battle it out. Returning chef Eddie Attwell, who cooks at St Kyrans Country House, Country Cavan, competed in 2016 but failed to make it through to cook the judges on Friday.


 He is taking on two newcomers - experimental chef Joery Castel, originally from Holland but now working in Belfast, and Tommy Heaney, who has cooked for some of the country's biggest chefs and now cooks at The Great House Hotel in Bridgend.

 The chefs meet their surprise veteran judge and cook their starters. Eddie is hoping to do better than last year and starts the week with his Wombles Common, using a number of modern techniques - but will his earthy flavours hit the summer brief? Joery is hoping to impress with a tribute to Richard Krajicek, the only Dutchman to win the Wimbledon Men's Singles title, and is combing cheese with sweet elements including carrot meringues. Tommy is creating a warm salad - but will his unusual pigeon presentation be too much for the veteran judge?
