Great British Menu 2017 Wales Dessert ep.29

This year on Great British Menu, the ultimate professional cooking competition, 24 of Britain's top chefs are competing for the chance to cook at a prestigious Taste of Summer banquet celebrating 140 years of the iconic Wimbledon Championships. The chefs have been challenged to create outstanding dishes that capture a 'taste of summer'. Their menus must reflect the tastes, smells and colours of everybody's favourite time of year and pay tribute to the incredible history and prestige of the tournament.


 This week is the Wales regional heat and two determined newcomers, Paul Croasdale and Nick Brodie, take on returning chef to the competition Phil Carmichael for a place in the national finals. It is Phil's third time in the competition and this year he is determined to make it to the banquet. Today they are cooking their starters for this week's veteran judge. Phil, executive chef at Berners Tavern in London, is under pressure to impress as he is competing against his former head chef Paul.

 The three chefs are all producing complex starters with many elements that they need to execute perfectly. Both Paul and Phil are championing the tomato, creating technically challenging consommes, whilst Nick hopes his rabbit and carrot dish will have the edge over the other two. Who will succeed in impressing the veteran and who will crumble under the pressure of the Great British Menu kitchen?
