Great British Menu logo

The Great British mMenu is set to return to our screens this spring with the aim to produce the perfect British Olympic feast.

Twenty four top chefs from around Britain will be creating dishes that showcase the region they come from, and competing for the chance to serve them to top British sports stars at an extravagant feast hosted by Sir Steve Redgrave.

We’re sure you know the format for Great British Menu, but there will be a few twists along the way with this Olympics special. Chefs will get the chance to meet some of their sporting heroes as the competition progresses, and some surprising similarities between the two professions approach to achieving perfection will shine through.

You can expect to see Great British Menu veterans and first timers competing in this Olympic showdown to find some of the best talent in Britain.
