Eight chef teams have been announced as finalists in Essential Cuisine's Britain's Best Brigade competition 2017.

The eight teams are: Madingley Hall; Park Community School; Crowne Plaza Heythrop Park Hotel; the Cosy Club; the Rose and Crown; Anisha Grange; Sue Brady Catering; and Restaurant Associates.

Following a paper submission, the entries were judged by a panel including: executive head chef at Hertfordshire's the Grove, Harry Lomas; and executive development chef at the University of Warwick, Graham Crump.

The final eight teams have created a short video to showcase their kitchen.

A public vote is now open to decide on the winner. To vote go to before 27 June 2017.

The winning team will win £1,000 cash plus an exclusive menu development masterclass with a leading UK chef.
