As John Torode and Gregg Wallace get ready to taste the food cooked for them by this year’s three finalists - Jack, Luke and Ping - they (and their digestive systems) must be mightily relieved that finally, whatever they fork into their mouths, it should taste really good.
It’s about time. Over the past eight weeks they’ve endured banana paired with duck, salted pears, an almost inedible plum dumpling, ravioli made with instant potato, a beetroot sludge that was “like something I put my foot into on a farmyard” and more deconstructed dishes and chocolate fondants than you can shake a spoon at.
As is traditional, this week’s challenges have raised the culinary standards considerably. Preparing a meal for five of this country’s finest chefs was tough but simply standing in the same kitchen as legendary pastry chef Christian Escribà and Michelin-starred Carles Abellán would make most amateur cooks throw in the apron as well as the towel.
Now just one more three-course meal stands between the finalists and victory. Let’s hope nobody is tempted to serve a deconstructed fondant made from instant mash and salty pear.
Eight weeks ago, the distinctive husky tones of India Fisher marked the start of another series of
. Since then, 57 of the original 60 amateur cooks have fallen by the wayside, leaving tonight's trio battling it out to succeed last year's victor Natalie Coleman as champion. All that stands between them and the title are three courses of perfect grub, so they'll be pulling out all the stops to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace with spicy starters, mouth-watering mains and delicious desserts.
