We won't be watching it this year as the events become less & less prestigious. As the point of it was to find the best menu cooked by the best chefs for VIP's this becoming less & less the case.
Also I think it is time the judges were changed.They have become very boring & very snobby.
Why does it matter how prestigious the event is? For me it's an opportunity to see some of the best chefs in the country coming up with innovative dishes.
