Outline Productions is in production with a second series of its hit format "Remarkable Places To Eat" for BBC Two. In each visually stunning episode of Remarkable Places To Eat, one of Britain’s best-known food experts takes Maitre D’ Fred Sirieix to a city in the UK or abroad that is home to the restaurants where they most love to eat. There they share what they believe are the most unmissable food experiences the location has to offer, and explain why they are so extraordinary.
The first two episodes - filmed pre-lockdown - feature TV chef Andi Oliver, whose love of soul food has led to an obsession with Marrakech’s rich culinary heritage; and food writer Rachel Khoo who wants to prove to Fred that Viennese cuisine is vibrant and exciting and deserves international recognition. Filming for the rest of the series is currently on hold due to Covid-19.
Catherine Catton, Head of Commissioning, Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment said: “We are very pleased to be back with Fred as some of the nation’s favourite foodies open their little black books to reveal incredible restaurant destinations”.
Laura Mansfield and Helen Veale, Creative Directors commented: “We are thrilled to be in production of a second season of Remarkable Places To Eat, which proved so popular with viewers the first time round. Although there’s a delay between the starter and the rest of the courses this time, we’re sure the sumptuous food and restaurants that Andi and Rachel take Fred to will leave audiences looking forward to the remainder of the series and the further treats we have in store.”
