Last year the fight was on as some of the nation’s greatest chefs battled for the chance to cook a glittering Olympic banquet.
London hosted the summer Olympic Games. Great British Menu: The Olympic Feast gave the chefs a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a special banquet to celebrate the Games coming to our shores and showcase contemporary British cooking at its absolute best.
In 2010, up to one million people took part in The Big Lunch – a nationwide one-day event that encouraged people to cook and eat with their neighbours.
Inspired by this, last year the GBR chefs battled to create spectacular sharing platters, dishes that got everyone talking, proving that food has the power to bring us all together, for the most magnificent street party ever held.
Each week three chefs battled it out in the kitchen, for a chance to cook at the banquet.
The North East chefs were Andrew Pern, Stephanie Moon and Tim Bilton. Supervised by former champion Nigel Haworth.
