BBC1 has MasterChef: The Finals, so what? This is where the real culinary skill is on show.
Tom Brown and Dominic Chapman go head-to-head as they vie to represent the south west in the national finals. To get there, they must impress the formidable panel of judges – Oliver Peyton, Matthew Fort and for the first time this year, broadcaster and restaurateur Andi Oliver. Today they are joined in the chamber by guest judge Marion Regan, whose farm provides the famous Wimbledon strawberries to the championships.
Tom has been consistently excellent throughout the week but Dominic has headed kitchens at some of the UK’s most creative restaurants and is a veteran of this competition. Tune in to find out who cuts the mustard and who gets hard cheese.
Great British Menu – Friday 7.30pm on BBC2.
