London and South East - Starter
This week, it is the turn of three chefs from London and south east England. 2017’s banquet champion Selin Kiazim, a rising star of the London scene renowned for her Turkish Cypriot fusion flavours, is back hoping to join the elite group of chefs who have made it to the banquet twice. She is up against James Cochran, who has worked at some of London’s toughest kitchens, including two Michelin-starred The Ledbury, and Scott Goss from The Twenty Six in Tunbridge Wells, renowned for his use of local Kent ingredients.
Today, the three chefs meet their surprise veteran judge and one chef in particular is in for a shock. But who can conquer their nerves score well? Selin hopes to elevate a Turkish-style breakfast into a starter fit for a banquet. James serves a deeply personal mushroom dish, dedicated to the NHS staff who cared for his late mother through cancer, and inspired by her love of foraging. While Scott attempts a creative reimagining of tea and biscuits, dedicated to NHS shift workers.
