Priced at £35, tickets include eight croqueta, one from each finalist, and two gin and tonics or welcome beers, brought to us in partnership with Franklin & Sons tonic, Gin Mare and Estrella.

This year’s Grand Final will be held at Ember Yard from 6.30pm to 8pm on Tuesday 1st October 2019.

The restaurants who have so far made it through are: Dehesa, Ember Yard, Paradise, Inko Nito, The Coach and Galvin, with the last two finalists decided at next Tuesday’s Fitzrovia Heat.

Judges responsible for crowning this year’s winning Croqueta are Catherine Hanley, Co-Founder, Hot Dinners; Lulu Grimes, BBC Good Food and Martha de Lacey, supper club host and food writer. The ever-charismatic and respected restaurant writer, editor and broadcaster Joe Warwick will be the evening’s host with the most.

The winner of this year’s challenge will have their very own grand final champion croqueta added to each of the Salt Yard Group’s restaurant’s menus for two weeks so that everyone will have the chance to try it.
