Fans of the BBC show were left unimpressed with Michelin star chef Tony Parkin’s dish which he created to honour vegetarian Ricky Gervaisa Thai green curry.

He first started by blanching the cauliflower, then roasted it, and went on to create a punching curry paste for the sauce.

Tony told the camera: “If there’s not enough spice in it, it kind of defies the point of the hot seat, veramente…”

The chef then added chicken stock to give it a bit of a kick.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to share their confusion over his decision.

One questioned: “How is chicken stock vegetarian? #GreatBritishMenu.

Un altro ha detto: “Interesting that a chef on #GreatBritishMenu would make a ‘vegetariandish inspired by @rickygervais and put fucking chicken stock in it.

Un terzo è intervenuto: “@tonyparkinASR how was that vegetarian even a trainee knows Chicken stock isnt vegetarian. You have a Michelin star for heavens sake. #GreatBritishMenu.

Un quarto aggiunto: “WTF #GreatBritishMenu vegetarian #ThaiGreenCurry with chicken stock in it !”

Watching the @GBMofficial and one of the chefs says he’s making a vegetarian Thai green curry. Which was fine, right up to the point he added chicken stock to his curry paste. WTF,” a fifth wrote.

Un altro twittato: “Sorry but that dish should have scored zero, it’s not vegetarian if it had been made with chicken stock.

After Life star Ricky Gervais has been veggie for several years, but has recently turned vegan.

Last month the actor revealed that he had turned to a plant-based diet during an appearance on Jimmy Falcon’s Tonight Show.

He told the host: “Bene, I am vegan so it’s even worse for me, I wouldn’t…”

But luckily his mistake didn’t jeopardise his place in the competition.

At the end of the episode Robbie Lorraine was booted off the show.

The Great British Menu will see 32 chefs in total representing eight different regions or nations.

It will highlight the outstanding culinary talent across the UK with chefs going head to head in a bid to get a spot at the coveted banquet.
