This week in Great British Menu episode 7 2017, it is the south west heats as two ambitious newcomers, Tom Brown and Andy Clatworthy, take on returning chef Dominic Chapman. Today it is the fish course and with a seafood specialist in the kitchen, the competition is stepping up a gear. Tom, head chef at Outlaw’s at The Capital in Knightsbridge, is hoping he will be able to elevate the humble mackerel to the standards required for the Wimbledon banquet.
His competitors are looking to score highly with their more luxurious dishes. Dom is eager to impress with his turbot dish, which uses both traditional and modern cooking techniques. Andy takes a risk preparing lobster three ways, adding some unusual flavours.
