Episode 2: Takeaways

Summary

The Michelin-starred chef creates dishes inspired by some of his favourite takeaway foods, starting with a puff pastry pizza topped with crispy beef. He cooks an upmarket version of a doner kebab in which he swaps the usual lamb for duck and shows how to make a grown-up doughnut stuffed with an innovative chocolate filling that tastes of Turkish delight. Tom also comes up with a twist on the traditional Cornish pasty by replacing meat with smoked haddock and prepares burgers made with real ham to feed spectators at a greyhound track.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

It's impossible not to be swept up in Tom Kerridge's enthusiasm for his food. “This is the best morning of my life,” he says, as he tucks into a honeycomb-stuffed gourmet doughnut that leaves him with sugary whiskers and a grin on his face. 

His theme this week is takeaway food, “but with the volume turned right up”. His smoked haddock pasty looks, to quote him, “proper lush”, but his version of pizza (using Bovril, soured red onions and a creamy blue cheese dressing) is downright scary. As is the amount of salt he shovels into his “real ham” hamburgers. There's nothing remotely namby-pamby about Tom's grub.
