Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feast

Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feast

Series 5 - Episode 3



Mark Hamill is remembering how he and Harrison Ford ordered spotted dick at a restaurant called the Hungry Horse when they were making Star Wars. You don’t get that with Nigella. But Jamie’s pulling power means a visit from sci-fi royalty turns into an enjoyably knockabout occasion on the Southend Pier café.

Hamill does a lightsaber impression with a whole horseradish and makes Yorkshire puddings that could “sink the Death Star”. There’s also a brilliant recipe for caesar salad using brined chicken, and this week Jimmy’s slightly daft-looking DIY “make” involves cooking whelks in a wheelbarrow. It’ll never catch on.


Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty feel the force as they're joined in their Southend cafe by veteran Star Wars actor Mark Hamill, hoping to create a menu that can be considered `out of this world' for their childhood hero, aka Luke Skywalker. Jamie becomes the Jedi Master as he teaches Mark to cook perfect Yorkshire pudding and roast beef. There's also a Caesar salad that really pushes the boat out. Meanwhile, Jimmy creates a bespoke seafood feast. Away from the sci-fi action, the boys uncover an innovative way to put some of the UK's food-waste mountain to good use, helping those who need it the most.
