New series. Gregg Wallace, Monica Galetti and Marcus Wareing search for the UK's most exciting cooking talent of 2018. In this opening heat, six professional chefs from all over the UK put their reputations on the line. This first skills test has been set by Monica - the contestants cook tempura squid with a roasted garlic and saffron mayonnaise. The remaining three chefs face Marcus' test - cook a cauliflower steak with two cauliflower garnishes and a nut butter. Finally all six participants can redeem any earlier mistakes when they cook their own signature dish.
