During its most recent BBC2 season, "Remarkable Places to Eat" attracted a nine percent audience share. Previous co-hosts showing Fred around have included Michel Roux Jr, Nisha Katona, Rachel Khoo, Angela Hartnett and Nadiya Hussein.“I’m so excited to get back on the road to go and discover 'Remarkable Places to Eat' with an array of wonderful co-hosts," Fred Sirieix said. "This is not just about restaurants but travel and special shared moments.”
Each episode of "Remarkable Places" to Eat sees one of Britain’s best-known foodies, including chefs and restaurateurs - taking Fred Sirieix to a city in the UK or abroad that is home to three of the restaurants where they most love to eat, whether it’s a high-end Michelin-starred meal or something lower budget that brings back strong personal memories. At each location, they share some of the unmissable food experiences the place has to offer, from meeting suppliers and artisan craftspeople to exploring some of the incredible urban settings or beautiful natural landscapes which provide the local produce that goes into their meals. “I am delighted that this brilliant show will find a home at Channel 4 so it can continue to inspire viewers and share the most mouth-watering places to eat in the UK and around the world," Kate Thomas, who commissioned the series for Channel 4 said.
“Birrificio Angelo Poretti is the perfect accompaniment to food, brewed specifically to enhance dining moments for over 140 years.

"We are delighted therefore to partner with Remarkable Places to Eat, the series that takes viewers on a gastronomic journey, revealing the best places to eat from hidden gem restaurants at a range of budgets, championing amazing food, which is what Birrificio Angelo Poretti is all about.”
