Great British Menu 2021 episode 28

Great British Menu 2021 episode 28 – The Finals: Dessert: At the end of the show, one chef will be surprised by being asked to cook the banquet’s mini dishes – but will this be additional work for an existing winner, or a final chance of reaching the banquet for a chef who hasn’t won a course?



In this episode, the guest judge is comedian Ed Gamble, who co-hosts the enormously successful Off Menu podcast. He joins food critic Matthew Fort, restaurateur Oliver Peyton and cook and broadcaster Rachel Khoo to select the menu’s final flourish – the dessert course. This is the last chance the chefs have of cooking a course at the banquet, so tensions are running high as the rivals cook against each other for the final time. The stunning dishes pay tribute to a broad spectrum of innovators from celebrated 19th century chemists to icons of 21st century computing.

Along with Masterchef, Great British Menu is a cooking show that has been running so long it is basically a national institution by now. However, even after all these years, Great British Menu manages to keep fresh with new ingredients for season 16 – former judge Andi Oliver is now presenter, with cook, writer and broadcaster Rachel Khoo taking her place on the judging panel.

It’s a very formidable line-up – so can the chefs impress with a menu based on innovation to celebrate thirty years of the world wide web?
