Monday 18th April – Friday 22nd April
BBC2 - 6:30pm
Watch out for Lisa Allen on BBC TWO Daytime's popular series Great British Menu. Lisa is competing in the North West regional heat which will be on television from Monday 18th April to Friday 22nd April at 6.30pm.
This year the theme for the series is cooking for the people. Britain's best chefs from across the country are vying for a place in the final. The chefs' challenge: to create awe inspiring food that can be shared at the ultimate street party: The People's Banquet.
The series is working with The Big Lunch, a funded community street party initiative, run by The Eden Project. Last year the best part of a million people took part in a nationwide one day event that encourages people to cook and eat with their neighbours. Inspired by this, the Great British Menu chefs are battling to create spectacular sharing dishes, platters that will get everyone talking, proving food has the power to bring us all together for the best street party ever.
If Lisa makes it to the final, her dishes will be paraded down the ancient cobbled streets of Leadenhall Market in London to about 100 expectant guests. But first they must persuade Marcus Wareing (chef/judge mentor) and then face the Great British Menu judges, Oliver Peyton, Prue Leith and Matthew Fort in the regional final.
Lisa's Menu for the competition is:
- Starter – Crispy Shoulder of Suckling Pig, Pancakes & Dip
- Fish Course – Whole Salt Baked Sea Trout to Share, Cockles, Potato Salad, Fennel & Samphire
- Main Course – Barbeque "Beer Can" Cornfed Chicken, Summer Beans, Potato Skins, Tear & Share Bread
- Dessert - Raspberry & Chocolate Pavlova, Sheep's Milk & Nut Ice Cream Pots
