Episode 1: Crowd Pleasers

Summary

The double Michelin-starred chef creates new versions of some of Britain's favourite recipes, elevating everyday, ordinary food with his impressive flair. In the first episode, Tom focuses on crowd-pleasing dishes, perfect for sharing at a party, including crispy stuffed potato skins with Roquefort and pancetta, pulled beef brisket with garlic coleslaw, and barbecued mackerel. He finishes off with an indulgent chocolate tart that is not only delicious, but also deceptively easy to rustle up.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Tom Kerridge makes no bones about it. He loves his grub and he likes it hearty. So food is lush, proper tasty or hard-core, while spices are “bad boys” and a chocolate filling is “ramped right up”. Think Jamie rather than Delia.

His mission is to demonstrate how we can make good food great with a bit of effort and a few crafty tricks. He starts with party food but there are no namby-pamby canapés on his menu.

Instead, he serves potato skins loaded with a rich creamy filling that’s like “all the best flavours of packet crisps rolled into one and put into 3D”, slow cooked beef brisket burger with spicy coleslaw and an impressively decorated chocolate tart he promises our friends will love (“and if they don’t, get new friends”). His blokey style is not to everyone’s taste but his food is.
