Tricks of the Restaurant Trade, the smart guide to eating out, goes behind the scenes at big high street brands to secure viewers the best dining experience for their money. Sophie Morgan explores what’s new in the rapidly expanding world of home delivery. She meets Will Shu, CEO of Deliveroo, and discovers that the company that has transformed the delivery sector is now opening takeaway kitchens. What will it mean for consumers and restaurants?
Simon Rimmer exposes the surprising hidden sugars in our favourite restaurant meals and the challenges in meeting the government’s target for sugar reduction. And with the rise in new single-dish restaurants, Simon searches out the original success story and meets a London pie and mash master whose family has been in business for more than 100 years. What does he think of the new dishes on offer and what advice does he have for creating a long-running business?
Plus: reporter Adam Pearson creates his own single-dish innovation, inspired by a packet of crisps.
