Great British Menu Christmas 2020 episode 6: Andi Oliver hosts as the top three chefs from yesterday’s dessert and petit four rounds compete for the final courses of a special Christmas feast for some of the key workers who were the heroes of the pandemic.
Ahead for the judges are two rounds of fantastic festive dishes, with everything from the deep earthy tastes of root vegetable mince pies to the technical virtuosity of blown-sugar snow globes.
Actor and comedian Kerry Godliman and regular judges Matthew Fort and Oliver Peyton are joined this week by special guest judge Beverly Knight MBE. Both Beverly’s mother and brother were taken to hospital after contracting coronavirus, and she has also been active in raising over £30,000 for musical theatre performers unable to work because of the pandemic.
An incredible roll call of British chefs, all former winners of the competition, compete to prepare an extra special festive feast for some of the heroes of this year’s pandemic, with a total of 17 Michelin stars competing across the series. Great British Menu judge Andi Oliver takes charge of proceedings as the show’s host.
