I cannot believe it as I watched the programmes this week (yes we get to see the end result at the same time as everyone else no sneak preview!). It was so close!
I loved Friday’s programme with the judges. Having been in the chambers once before, I knew the pressure and the feeling of competing in there.
Tim Brooke Taylor from The Goodies joined as the fourth judge and this was great news for me. A childhood favourite from my younger TV viewing years. He rocks as far as I am concerned!
The programme seemed to be very even and the judges comments were mostly phenomenal.
Oliver Peyton– After eating my starter
“Great job, flying start, we are in for a good day”
Matthew Fort – After eating my fish course
“This custard doesn’t quite cut the mustard!”
Tim Brooke Taylor – After eating my fish course
Tim Brooke Taylor – And main course
“Very even but I know who is leading in my book- come on Steph!”
Pru Leith - After eating my pudding
“I love it and the biscuit is so short, perfect, highly enjoyable”
I really did give Colin a run for his money.
Here are my four recipes from the Great British Menu. As you will see they are complex and will take you a while even if you are an experienced chef. They are hard core!
Great British Menu has been supporting Comic Relief . Throughout filming I have learnt much more about the work they do. Rudding Park have also been supporting Comic Relief with their Menu Relief Afternoon Tea.
Finally, I would like to thank all the team from Great British Menu for an experience I will never forget and thank you to everyone for their wonderful support.
