Remarkable Places To Eat | Preview (Channel 4)
Outline Productions is bringing its food and travel format Remarkable Places to Eat to a new home at More4 and Channel 4, in partnership with Italian beer brand Birrificio Angelo Poretti. The series previously aired on BBC Two.
Each episode of Remarkable Places to Eat sees one of Britain’s best-known foodies – including chefs and restaurateurs - taking Fred Sirieix to a city in the UK or abroad that is home to three of the restaurants where they most love to eat – whether it’s a high-end Michelin-starred meal or something lower budget that brings back strong personal memories.
At each location, they share some of the unmissable food experiences the place has to offer, from meeting suppliers and artisan craftspeople to exploring some of the incredible urban settings or beautiful natural landscapes which provide the local produce that goes into their meals.
During its most recent BBC2 season, Remarkable Places to Eat attracted a nine percent audience share. Previous co-hosts showing Fred around have included Michel Roux Jr, Nisha Katona, Rachel Khoo, Angela Hartnett and Nadiya Hussein.
Laura Mansfield and Helen Veale, Creative Directors, Outline Productions said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Channel 4 and Birrificio Angelo Poretti on Remarkable Places to Eat. Experiencing fantastic food is something we all think about when deciding on visiting somewhere new, and this series will inspire viewers to search out hidden gems as well as established stars, whether they’re looking for a simple, authentic snack from a hole-in-the wall bar to a sumptuous banquet in a beautiful location.”
Fred Sirieix adds: “I’m so excited to get back on the road to go and discover Remarkable Places to Eat with an array of wonderful co-hosts. This is not just about restaurants but travel and special shared moments.”
Kate Thomas, who commissioned the series for Channel 4 said: “I am delighted that this brilliant show will find a home at Channel 4 so it can continue to inspire viewers and share the most mouth-watering places to eat in the UK and around the world.”
Remarkable Places To Eat airs on More4 and Channel 4 this August.
