It seems incredibly cruel to expect an untrained fast food cook to pass himself off as a professional chef after just a month’s tutelage from one of our best chefs. But that’s the basis of this series.
And so Carl, who serves “lorry driver grub” from his roadside snack van is packed off to Daniel Clifford’s Michelin-starred restaurant. There are moments when the potential for humiliation is unbearable but Carl gamely rises to the challenge – most of the time. But if a novice, after intense training, can cope in one of the world’s best restaurants, it makes you wonder what all the Michelin fuss is about.
Fast-food cooks with no formal training are taught by some of Britain's most refined chefs, before posing as seasoned professionals working in world-class kitchens. Burger-van owner Carl is paired with notorious perfectionist Daniel Clifford at the two Michelin-starred restaurant Midsummer House in Cambridge. Enduring 18-hour days, intense pressure and time away from his family, will Carl be able to pass himself off as one of Daniel's best chefs at the renowned Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy?
