Richard Corrigan made it through to the final of the Great British Menu - but it was nail-bitingly close! They detested Richard's poached salmon but Noel McMeel's lamb was unfortunately tough, they weren't crazy about the 80's decoration on his dessert plate (hmmm, I am glad I was right on that count!) and I think overall they believed Richard's menu was "more Irish" than Noel's despite Noel currently actually working in Northern Ireland.
It's a shame that Richard's salmon was apparently so awful when he won last year on a simpler salmon dish that everyone admired so much. But I guess it proves that there's no guaranteed winner on the Great British Menu.
