Matt Gillan, Michelin-starred chef at Matt Gillan at The Pass, South Lodge, an Exclusive Hotel in Horsham, West Sussex is joining the line-up of BBC TWO’s Great British Menu. This year the chefs must plate up perfection, as they fight it out for the chance to cook at a glorious banquet marking 100 years of the Women’s Institute at London’s historic Drapers Hall.
The challenge is to produce 21st century dishes that honour the custodians of first class home cooking, and pay tribute to the generations of women who have helped make Britain the great culinary nation it is today. The chefs have taken inspiration from the women in their families – their mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers – and the pioneering women of the Institute, to turn home-cooked classics into modern masterpieces.
Matt is competing in the London and South East regionals alongside competitors Lee Westcott, Typing Room and Mark Froydenlund, Marcus.
