With just one more chance to impress their veteran judge, the chefs are all hoping to use their pastry skills to deliver technically complex desserts. Tom’s cooking an Invalid Fruit Tart, inspired by a 1950s recipe, while Jude is making six different apple elements for his An Apple a Day. Olivia is using stout in reference to an outdated old wives’ tale which suggested the drink was a healthy source of iron during pregnancy.
Great British Menu episode 29 2018 – South West – Dessert
This week it is the turn of three chefs representing the south west, including two who have competed before but meet in the kitchen this week for the very first time. First up is Jude Kereama, who competed in 2015 and 2016, and is back for a third bite of the cherry. New Zealand-born Jude moved to the UK 22 years ago eventually settling in Porthleven, Cornwall, where he runs Kota restaurant, which boasts two AA rosettes and a Michelin bib gourmand.
He goes up against last year’s regional champion Tom Brown, a protege of Nathan Outlaw who has just launched his own restaurant Cornerstone in London’s East End, and Olivia Barry, who trained under Michelin-starred Angela Hartnett before opening Adelina Yard in Bristol, which has earned two AA rosettes.
