Episode Summary

The banquet is finally here. In preparation for the big event the chefs research life during World War II, visiting the scene of the invasion in Normandy with D-Day veteran Ken Sturdy. When the chefs first arrive at St Paul's Cathedral there is a nasty shock when they discover the kitchens aren't quite up to banquet standards. With some help from judges Oliver Peyton and Matthew Fort the situation is soon rectified but the delay puts the chefs under pressure forcing one of them to work long into the night. On the day of the banquet, the victorious four chefs must put their finest hours on a plate for those who served both on the front line and the home front, such as D-Day veterans Ken Sturdy and George Batts, one of Churchill's secretaries Joy Hunter and Bletchley Park cypher clerk Baroness Trumpington, as well as others including Churchill's granddaughter Celia Sandys.moreless
