Summary Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal is back with a brand new series where he explores the stories behind Britain's favourite dishes. Britain is home to some of the most iconic dishes in the world. From fish and chips to spotted dick, pie and mash to roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, these are the meals that have kept stomachs full and satisfied for centuries.In Heston's Great British Food, the boundary pushing chef goes looking for answers to: Why did roast beef become Britain's national dish? How were fish and chips used to keep moral up during the war? And what (or who) was the most unusual filling served up in a pie? On his travels around the country Heston discovers why these dishes are so deeply rooted in British culture. Unlocking their secret histories, he uses what he learns to help inspire an epic culinary salute to each one... but all with a Heston twist of course. From edible rock pools to sweet hot dogs, real jack in the box pies to chocolate tea pots a host of amazing, unexpected and incredible creations are served up in a celebration of all the things that have helped make British food great.Heston wants to reveal the incredible stories and discover the origins of British favourite, fish and chips. He travels from the Bluebell Railway to Brixham, Devon while recreating the typical fish and chip meal with his signature atypical Heston-style. Heston cooks up a tribute to memories of seaside holidays with an edible rock pool and creates a life like mussel, complete with edible shell and a lobster flavoured star fish, surrounded with other rock pool favourites - from edible sea sponges, to drinkable rock pool water. From eating giant eyeballs from a monster fish and enormous chips, to edible rock pools and mushy pea ice-cream, a trip to the local chippie will never seem the same again.
