It’s the second semi-final of Food Glorious Food.
Three regional heat winners compete to win the last place in the final by cooking a whopping 150 portions of their delicious dishes - for fire and rescue, police, and ambulance workers from the north east.
This week the outrageous Ms G aka Andrew Pearce with his pecorino cheese profiteroles rounds up a crack team of friends and family to help him take on Yorkshire Teacher Rahila with her traditional White Chicken Korma and Angela Wilson’s modern take on a Chicken Tikka.
Our home cooks are feeling the pressure and each has their breaking point as Rahila turns the tables on our life savers with an emergency of her own, whilst Miss G frets over the size of his balls.
Series overview: 
Anyone with a passion for cooking has a favourite dish that they love to cook, be it something they created themselves, or a recipe passed down through the generations.
Now, in this delightful new series for ITV, a team of expert judges have scoured the country for Britain’s best loved recipe, with the winning dish earning a place on the shelves of Marks & Spencer and a £20,000 cash prize. 
Presented by Carol Vorderman, the series will see contestants up and down the country bringing their dishes to be sampled.
The judges, Stacie Stewart from the Beehive Bakery, food writer and editor Tom Parker Bowles, food connoisseur Loyd Grossman and vice chairwoman of the WI Anne Harrison, will be tasting the dishes and choosing their favourites to go through to the next round.
From pasties to pastries, jellies to jalfrezis and cakes to casseroles, any dish is welcome as this colourful series celebrates food, glorious food for the nation. 
This is a show that is not on the lookout for the next British super chef but just one brilliant home cooked recipe that the nation can fall in love with, and anyone and everyone is in with a chance.
