The Great British Menu returned to BBC Two in 2019 along with some of the UK’s finest chefs.

The 2019 series began back in March, and the final episode (Friday, May 17th) saw the final four chefs take their dishes to the grand banquet at Abbey Road Studios for one last battle to find the ‘chef of chefs’!

So, who is the Great British Menu finalist Lorna McNee? Here’s everything you need to know…

Who is Lorna McNee?

Lorna McNee was crowned the winner of the Great British Menu 2019.

Lorna was a returning chef to the show and wanted to prove a point after she narrowly missed out on the banquet in Great British Menu 2018.

It’s safe to say she nailed it!

What is Lorna McNee’s menu inspired by?

Her menu hoped to achieve the impossible and showcase the very best modern techniques.

Lorna aimed to create a meal that would never be forgotten and her ‘Club Tropicana’-inspired dessert certainly won’t be!

The dessert scored her tens across the board and was a joyous way to end the banquet.
