Olivia Barry Great British Menu

Bristol-born chef Olivia Barry is representing the South West region on Great British Menu 2022 for series 17. This is Olivia’s second appearance in the competition. The Adelina Yard chef first appeared on Great British Menu in 2018.

The Bristol chef announced on social media that she will be returning to the BBC show Great British Menu. She wrote: “Guess who’s back in the @greatbritishmenu kitchen..? Proud, pleased and pretty psyched to be representing the South West as part of the first all female line-up and alongside some of the South West’s best: @charlotte_vincent_food_ @ellywentworth @nattallentschef.

“My last outing on Great British Menu didn’t quite go to plan, so I am really excited to have a second chance. Can’t wait to show you what I’ve been cooking up to celebrate 100 years of British broadcasting. Tune in from Tuesday at 8pm on BBC 2 or BBC iPlayer. #GreatBritishMenu #GBM.”

Olivia explained to Women In the Food Industry how she got onto Great British Menu and how she prepared for the broadcasting theme.

“I have been on the show before. It was three years before. But you have to speak to quite a few people about the food you are going to to. I then got a phone call saying I was on.

“To prepare for it is almost impossible, as you kind of know what you are going into and you kind of don’t. I tried to stay focussed on what I wanted to achieve and make sure I was happy with the dishes I was doing.”
