Take a look at what's in store for the Central heat week on Great British Menu.

This week returning Great British Menu chefs contenders Aktar Islam and Great British Chefs' Daniel Clifford, will be joined by contest newcomer Paul Foster. Will their starters be enough to impress veteran judge Glyn Purnell? On the menu is pork neck with ribwort plantain and pork scratchings, veal tartare with caramelised sweetbread and burnt onions, and breast of squab with confit leg and chilli and sweetcorn shoots. On Tuesday, the chefs will cook a fish course, on Wednesday main course and on Thursday it's desserts.

On Friday the two chefs with the most points for the week will cook their dishes again for restaurateur and businessman, Oliver Peyton, fellow restaurateur and cookery writer, Prue Leith and food journalist and author, Matthew Fort. Matthew is Great British Chefs strategic advisor who also blogs for us and write the introductions for a number of our ingredient collections. The winner will go into the finals (joining Alan Murchison who won the Scottish round).

We hope you'll be watching the show when it starts at 7.30pm each weekday night on BBC2. At Great British Chefs we'll be cheering on Daniel Clifford of Midsummer House - you can see more about his cooking style in our video below.

It's Daniel's third appearance on Great British Menu, previously he appeared in the 2009 and 2010 series.
