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.Heston discovers the origins of the great British roast, before serving up a spectacular roast beef dinner to the people who make it possible - butchers and farmers. Heston travels back to late medieval times and tries out a roast chicken dressed as a knight riding a pig into battle. He then finds himself in the early 1800s, uncovering just how important beef was to Nelson and his navy. In Switzerland Heston discovers how mould is being used in laboratories to create the most sublime aged beef. He creates a joint made up of different cuts, all treated differently, and stuck together with meat glue; an edible vegetable garden; a bull shot cocktail; and giant Yorkshire puddings. And Heston reveals the secrets of his signature roast potatoes. The Sunday roast beef dinner will never seem the same again.
