We’re rather excited about this month’s food TV. Not only is MasterChef: The Professionals back on our screens, but Heston Blumenthal’s here with a brand spanking new series, Heston’s Fantastical Food, supersizing some of Britain’s favourite childhood meals and treats. There are plenty of foodie delights to keep you entertained this November…
Great British Food Revival
The Great British Food Revival continues this month. From James Martin’s watercress knowledge to Ainsley Harriott’s love of British mustard, we’ve really enjoyed following each well-known chef as they’ve championed a different British ingredient. Still to come this month: John Torode sets out to revive duck, Glynn Purnel stands up for British shrimp, Monica Galetti takes on the asparagus, Tom Kerridge champions cured ham, Angela Harnett looks at ale and Michael Caines celebrates the British carrot.
When’s it on? BBC2, times vary
MasterChef: The Professionals
MasterChef is back and this time it’s professional. Judge Gregg Wallace is joined by two Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr to search for a professional chef with enough talent to become Britain’s next culinary superstar. Joined by the formidable Monica Galetti, ten chefs from restaurants across Britain battle it out in the kitchen. From invention tests to skills tests, these chefs have got their work cut out for them and we just can’t wait to see the drama – and all that lovely food – unfold!
When’s it on? Starts Monday 5th, BBC2, 8.30pm weekdays
Heston’s Fantastical Food
Where has Heston been hiding? Back with his brand new series Heston’s Fantastical Food, it looks as though he’s pulling out the big guns and going supersize! This series sees amazing supersized versions of childhood favourites to bring excitement back into food. In the first episode Heston tackles a full English breakfast, including meter long sausages and jumbo baked beans. We’ll definitely be watching.
