Great British Menu 2022 episode 23 - Northern Ireland Mains and Dessert

Great British Menu 2022 episode 23 – Northern Ireland Mains and Dessert: The three chefs are halfway through their heat, and the pressure is mounting. Once again, they each serve their unique interpretations of the brief celebrating 100 years of British broadcasting.



For mains, one chef is taking inspiration from Game of Thrones in a medieval Winterfell feast, another is paying homage to the Eurovision Song Contest in an eclectic taco and BBQ beef dish, and there’s a celebration of the Apollo 11 moon landing and a sophisticated take on one of the astronauts’ first meals.

Meanwhile, for dessert, there’s a celebration of comedy series Derry Girls in the form of a sherry-laced trifle with roasted vanilla gelato and a chocolate moelleux, a magical sesame- and cherry-flavoured mushroom, which is an ode to children’s series Sesame Tree, Northern Ireland’s version of Sesame Street, and a layered gingerbread, barbecued pineapple and coconut parfait, inspired by the launch of satellite television in 1989. Which chef will get the plaudits, and who will go home? Only two will proceed to cook for the judges and have a chance to represent Northern Ireland at the regional finals.

Great British Menu is back for an incredible seventeenth series, highlighting the amazing culinary talent found across the UK and pitting chefs against one another in a bid to get a spot at the coveted banquet. While the format is staying the same as last year, there are a good few changes, including a brand new judging team and of course a fresh new brief for the judges to tailor their dishes to. Here’s everything you need to know in advance of the series starting.

This year the chef’s will be tasked with creating dishes that reflect ‘100 Years of Great British Broadcasting’. The BBC’s first ever radio broadcast was in 1922, kickstarting a complete overhaul of how we all consume media and culture ever since. We’re expecting plenty of TV and radio-themed props, as well as dishes that pay homage to some of the most iconic British TV shows ever made. The final banquet will be held at Alexandra Palace in London, attended by all sorts of famous faces from TV and radio.

It’s all changing this year, with last year’s line-up of Matthew Forte, Oliver Peyton and Rachel Khoo being replaced by some fresh new faces. Instead, we have Tom Kerridge, the multi-Michelin-starred chef behind The Hand and Flowers, The Coach and Kerridge’s Bar and Grill; Nisha Katona, the chef behind the very popular Mowgli Street Food restaurants and the author of four cookbooks; and Ed Gamble, who many will know from his role hosting the Off Menu podcast with fellow comedian James Acaster. Andi Oliver will still be in amongst the action in the Great British Menu kitchen, acting as host. Each week the regular judges will be joined by a guest judge connected to the broadcasting theme.
