The Staff Canteen

Great British Menu 2018 returns to BBC2 this summer - it will be back on our screens on August 13th at 7.30pm

Once again the Great British Menu chefs will battle to show off their culinary skills and recipes at a banquet celebrating the NHS.

When does Great British Menu 2018 start?

It will be on BBC 2 from August 13 2018. Chefs from regions across the UK will compete to make it to finals week and ultimately cook at this year's banquet - they will bring their best dishes to regionals and they will be judged by veteran chefs who have previously competed in the competition. 

We've also heard there could be a twist this year so keep your eyes on The Staff Canteen for the latest Great British Menu 2018  announcements.
