Great British Menu announces biggest series ever

The heat has been turned up in the kitchen of the new BBC Two series of ‘Great British Menu’, as more chefs than ever before compete for the chance to cook for famous names from the literary world.

A total of 32 chefs will be curating literary-based menus, in the hope that they will be chosen by an expert panel of judges to cook at the ‘Great British Menu’ banquet at the end of the series.

Located at Exeter College in Oxford – the city that inspired novelists Phillip Pullman, CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien and Lewis Carroll – the banquet will feature the best dishes from across the series and will see celebrity judges and authors vote on their favourite dish, with one chef ultimately crowned champion of champions.

There are also some format changes for the new series that make the competition more intense than ever, with any mistake potentially leading to an early exit for even the best of chefs.

Airing later this month, ‘Great British Menu’ will also reflect a more contemporary tasting menu, with an amuse-bouche and pre-dessert palate cleanser added to the courses, challenging the chefs’ skills and creativity even further.
