Michelin-starred Birmingham chef Richard Turner will make his bid to create Britain’s Best Dish when he cooks for an audience of millions on Monday. (December 5)

Richard Turner, who runs Turners Restaurant, in Harbourne, will battle it out in front of Ed Baines, Jilly Goolden and John Burton Race.

He hopes to impress the three hard-to-please judges so that he can win a place in the Grand Final. However, he faces a tough challenge because the series has featured some of the best chefs in the UK, many of whom have Michelin stars.
Richard Turner said: “Appearing on Britain’s Best Dish marks something of a departure for me because I very rarely step out of the kitchen.
At Turners, the food comes first: all day and every day. However, we were asked to feature in the present series of Britain’s Best Dish, without affecting service to our customers,  and I hope the judges and the public will enjoy my food.”
The show is presented each week night at 5pm on ITV1 by Mary Nightingale and chefs from across the country battle it out in a series of keenly contested cooking duels to find out who has the Best Main Course and the Best Pudding.
Regional winners are entered into the national finals where they will be pushed to their limits as they take on the fight of a lifetime. The pressure mounts as the chefs’ reputations – and the restaurants they represent –battle it out for one the most coveted accolades in cooking.

Monday starts the ‘Midlands Heats’ showing all week, and also features Birmingham Chefs Andy Waters of Edmunds Restaurant, and Steve Love, of Loves Restaurant. It promises to be a gripping weeks’ viewing.

The competition culminates in a nail-biting grand final that sees the talented chefs face the ultimate test – cooking for the expert judges and a 100-strong studio audience to prove they have the Best Dish.
