Marco Pierre White’s Great British Feast

From traditional classics to long forgotten dishes, Marco Pierre White is on a mission to rediscover all that is great about British food.

He goes on the road to hunt out the finest ingredients the British countryside has to offer, and meets some colourful characters along the way. It’s all part of his bid to create and cook simple, delicious recipes for an unforgettable one-off event: his very own great British Feast.

Since handing back his Michelin stars and retiring full-time from the kitchen, Marco has found culinary inspiration from the countryside and the people around him. Now he wants to share his knowledge.

Over four episodes Marco shoots, fishes and forages for choice ingredients from some of the most picturesque locations, including venison he’s stalked through the woods to seaweed he has collected from the shore. Then, using what he’s found, he will create amazing all-British dishes that people can cook at home. As well as updating popular classics such as steak with oysters and fish pie, Marco also rediscovers the tastes of his youth and gives them a modern twist – including braised rabbit, herring, and even spatchcock squirrel!

The series climaxes in a memorable feast for 200 lucky diners from all around the country – presided over by Marco in the kitchen. With a menu featuring the very best dishes he’s found along the way, this is the ultimate celebration of British cuisine.

Viewers will be able to win tickets to join Marco at this special one-off event.
