Emily Watkins, co-owner of the Kingham Plough in Oxfordshire; Dominic Chapman, executive chef of the Royal Oak at Paley Street, Berkshire; and Josh Eggleton, chef proprietor of the Pony & Trap in Chew Magna, Bristol will cook their best dish from the show for guests at a series of Great British Menu dinners at £100 a head. The brief from this year’s programme was to create a menu to honour the men and women involved in the D-Day landings at a banquet to be held at St Paul’s Cathedral.
"The Great British Menu dinners have sold well and we will be releasing more dates soon," said Chapman, who has done TV work before. "The dishes served will be a selection from those we cooked for the competition.
"The competition was a great experience and I really enjoyed being part of it."
Eggleton will cook at his venue on Tuesday 29 April, Watkins on Wednesday 30 April and Chapman on Wednesday 7 May.
The series starts on Monday 7 April on BBC2 at 7.30pm with the south-west heat airing on 21 April to determine which pub chef will represent that region in the finals.
