Episode 2: Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feast
"We have an Absolutely Fabulous guest this week,'' announces Jamie Oliver to the expectant diners in the pier-end caff. Joanna Lumley is following in the footsteps of her co-star Jennifer Saunders who shared the kitchen with Jamie and Jimmy Doherty back in 2014. And because Joanna's been a vegetarian for 45 years, he and Jimmy have devised an all-veggie menu.
First up is M'hanncha - no, me neither. It's a spicy, coiled butternuts quash pie from Morocco that weirdly has icing sugar sprinkled over the top. Lumley dips in and out of her Patsy character - much to the delight of the diners who are extremely attentive this week - as she tries to curry favour with a Malaysian aubergine dish called kuzi. It's served with lacy pancakes that Jimmy says are "like food lingerie''. The dish goes down well: "I’d go round her house for dinner,'' says one man. I bet you would.
