A new season of the cooking contest kicks off tonight. Twenty four of the UK’s top chefs will compete against one another for the title. In this series, the winner additionally has the opportunity to cook a banquet to be served at the 140th anniversary celebration of the Wimbledon Championship. In this first episode, three chefs from London and south east England will go head-to-head. Tasked with making a special starter for their surprise judge, the menus prepared include a dish based on the classic Spanish dish gazpacho, a cucumber sandwich with Turkish Cypriot influences, and a courgette salad inspired by Australian cuisine.
