Feasting with Heston

Another food show I got caught by is "Heston's Feasts". Heston Blumenthal is a chef that runs the "greatest restaurant in the world" (according to him).

The format of each show is the same. Heston announces he's going to create a feast, according to some scheme, then six guests arrive. There are four courses, and each segment of the show is showing how Heston creates the particular dish and them it is served and we see the reaction.

There's a lot of strange dishes, all with a lot of flair, and the whole show is a fun time (even if we don't ourselves get to taste the food). Heston ranges over various periods in history (Tudors, Victorian, 1980s...) and also picks on some... not too real dishes (based on Alice in Wonderland or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). (Some of these periods I was already aware of due to Supersizers.)

Fun show, two seasons and a Christmas special, check it out if you can find it...
