Wednesday 14 January 2009 at 10:00pm on C4

Fergus Henderson and Jeremy Lee have been mates for a long time. With Fergus running his celebrated restaurant St John, and Jeremy’s position as head chef at top eatery Blueprint Café, the two friends are at the foodie frontline. Now Fergus and Jeremy are being sent on an epic culinary journey across Europe, Asia and Africa to find their culinary ceiling as they attempt to eat their way up through the ladder of animals that are considered taboo for consumption in Britain but very much part of the daily diet in other parts of the world. The programme offers a serious look at different cultures through the food they serve, exploring where some British food taboos stem from.
