• Back with new presenter Susan Calman and boasting an exciting new format with more chefs and more dishes.

    BBC Two’s Great British Menu celebrates the iconic food from children’s literature. From Willy Wonka’s Three-Course Dinner Gum to Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, children’s literature is packed full of imaginative foods to inspire the talented professional chefs coming from all corners of the UK to compete in this year’s Great British Menu.

    The question is: which chefs will come up with the most creative menu to earn a place at the banquet held at the University of Oxford’s stunning Exeter Colleges dinging hall.

  • Great British Menu has a new look, new chefs and an ambitious new theme to test the very best culinary skills of the competitors. For 2019, to mark the 50th anniversary of the last time The Beatles played live together, the nation’s most talented chefs will compete to win a once in a life-time opportunity to cook at a star studded banquet at Abbey Road Studios.

    Across eight regional heats, 24 chefs must serve up culinary, smash hits with dishes designed to celebrate Britain’s continuing worldwide success in popular music. But only four chefs can finally make it to the Abbey Road banquet with their dishes and only one chef will be crowned champion of champions there.
