Colin McGurran returns to defend Great British Menu title on BBC2
TOP North Lincolnshire chef Colin McGurran has returned to our television screens in this year's Great British Menu competition.
Winteringham Fields chef and owner Colin McGurran entered the Great British Menu contest last year, to test his skills, and ended up winning the competition.
Now, back in the competition for a second year running, Colin appeared on BBC2 in the North East regional heats last night at 7.30pm.
With this year's competition having a Comic Relief theme, Colin cooked a tomato gazpacho and garden salad in the first North Eastern heat.

He received mixed feedback from judge Jason Atherton, who praised the flavour of the dish but questioned its innovation.
Colin wowed judges last year with his 'Quail in the Woods' starter, and went on to win the grand final of the competition, which saw 24 of the finest chefs in the country battle in eight regional heats for the opportunity to create a four course Olympic menu.
The winning menu was then served at a prestigious event at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, hosted by Sir Steve Redgrave.
He will appear on Great British Menu again this evening, at 7.30pm on BBC2. In tonight's show Colin will cook his fish course of cockles, mussels and salmon.
