Beat the Chef returns for a brand-new series. Presenter and restaurateur Andi Oliver hosts the culinary combat, as skilful amateur cooks compete in two fast-paced cook-offs to win up to £10,000, as they go head-to-head with one of our four professional chefs: award-winning Mark Sargeant, Roux Scholar Frederick Forster, executive chef Sophie Michell and Michelin-starred Hrishikesh Desai. In the kitchen today, former fighter pilot Chris Topham hopes that his beef stroganoff can hit the heights of £10,000. But chef Mark Sargeant is out to prove that he’s the top gun when it comes to cooking. Will Chris rise to the challenge of Mark’s whole plaice with bourguignon sauce?
