A Festive Knockout: Episode 1



Some of the most memorable chefs from past series return to compete in two festive-themed specials, in a year when the hospitality industry has faced the most critical time in its history. Returning to cook for judges Monica Galetti, Marcus Wareing and Gregg Wallace are 2014 finalist Danny Parker, 2017 finalist Louisa Ellis, 2009 finalist Marianne Lumb and 2018 semi-finalist William Chilila. They are first set a skills test by Monica: from a bench full of festive ingredients, Marcus asks the chefs to come up with a dish inspired by Christmas leftovers. This is a chance for them to show the judges how their careers have progressed since they took part in the competition, and to show off their skill, flair and imagination using seasonal ingredients. Then they must impress the judges with a seasonally themed two-course menu that reveals their culinary personality, technical skills, creativity and mastery of flavour.
