Woohoo, fans of English mad scientist Chef Heston Blumenthal take note. Next week two of his TV shows begin airing on SBS ONE and ABC1 respectively.
Series 2 of Heston’s Feasts starts on SBS ONE on Thursday August 19 at 8:30pm (taking on the timeslot of another fantastic food programme which ends tonight, The Supersizers Go…) with the first episode of Willie Wonka feast based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Other feasts to come will include fairytales, gothic and Titanic. Those of you who had watched his first series last year, also on SBS ONE, would know it was an incredible TV show. The episode from series one that I loved most was the one where he created a feast of edible cutlery, candles, and napkins – that was just too delicious to watch!
But wait, before that goes to air, on Tuesday August 17, 2010, at 6:00pm Big Chef Takes on Little Chef premieres on ABC1. This one is in the style of Gordon Ramsay-saves-a-restaurant show but probably more civilised. Can’t wait!
Update August 17, 2010: Big Chef Takes on Little Chef was not broadcast tonight due to coverage of Policy Launch for the Election this weekend and it is held over for next week .
