Tonight, Jamie and his old mate Jimmy Doherty will appear on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man, before they unleash their new TV project: Food Fight Club. The show, premiering towards the end of this month, takes the pair on a quest across Europe, where they will challenge local cuisine with British food. Partly filmed in front of a live audience on Southend Pier, Jamie and Jimmy’s mission is to bring the country together in their love of British food, and take that passion into Europe. Each week a food theme – be it sausages, desserts or cheeses – will be chosen, and the two will take a road trip looking for Britain’s best examples, before taking it overseas to face off with its Continental counterparts. In Jamie’s words, it’s “set up to be the most exciting, interesting and funny cooking show ever to be shown on TV.”
Tune in tonight on Channel 4 at 10:00pm.
