What has Rachel Khoo said about Great British Menu 2021?
Khoo told Radio Times: “I got to meet so many incredible people,” of her experience as a Great British Menu judge.
“We had such a wide range of guests – an astronaut, architects, designers.
“All I had to do was sit and judge the best restaurant food the UK has to offer, without travelling anywhere. I was absolutely spoiled – I’d eat eight courses in a day!
“I literally rolled home afterwards. I kept thinking, ‘How did this happen? It’s so cool.’”
