In Great British Menu episode 19 2017, the dessert course is the last chance for the chefs to secure a place cooking for the judges and the pressure in the kitchen is intense. All the chefs are using unusual ingredients in their desserts. Inspired by his summers spent on his family’s Yorkshire farm, Tommy is cooking a dessert flavoured with hay.
Both Danny and Josh are making panna cottas – whose will impress the veteran chef? Danny is under pressure to complete his six strawberry-flavoured accompaniments, as well as a dandelion and burdock cocktail. Josh is using the flavours of foraged herbs in the hope of creating a dessert that isn’t too sweet. Only the two highest scorers will go through to cook for the judges tomorrow.
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.
