Great British Menu 2022 episode 28 - The Finals - Dessert

Great British Menu 2022 episode 28 – The Finals – Dessert: The eight regional champions cook their desserts in a bid to secure the last place on the menu at a banquet celebrating British broadcasting. Newsreader Huw Edwards is the guest judge. It’s national finals week, where the winners from the regional heats compete to earn a place on the menu of a spectacular banquet celebrating 100 years of brilliant British broadcasting. Each episode will see the eight rivals compete over a different course, from starter through to dessert, where they will be marked out of ten by an expert judging panel, which features a different well-known guest judge each episode.



The guest judge for the dessert course is journalist and News at 10 presenter Huw Edwards. He joins Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge, restaurateur Nisha Katona and food podcast host and comedian Ed Gamble on the judging panel to select the menu’s grand finale. This is the last chance the chefs have of cooking a course at the banquet, so tensions are running high as the rivals battle it out for the final time. Each chef produces a dessert that celebrates a broadcast with links to their nation or region – and with desserts infamously tricky to pull off in the heat of the Great British Menu kitchen, they have their work cut out.

Once a winner has been decided, one chef will be surprised by being asked to cook the banquet’s mini dishes – the canape and pre-dessert. Will this be additional work for an existing winner, or a chance of cooking at the banquet for a chef who hasn’t won a course?


Great British Menu 2022 episode 28 – The Finals – Dessert


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.
