The Best Of British Takeaways: Chinese (BBC-2 21 Mar 2017)

Published

on

Episode two of The Best of British Takeaways, airing on Tuesday 21 March at 7.00pm on BBC Two, looks at our current favourite takeaway food – Chinese.

As a nation we eat an incredible eight million Chinese takeaways a week. Michelin star Chef Tom Kerridge travels the country to find out what makes the best and the trade secrets behind it, while Cherry Healey explores the fascinating stories that shaped our communities as well as our palates. She discovers how the home washing machine kick-started the takeaway and how Billy Butlin introduced Chinese food to the masses for the first time.

Three of the nation’s award-winning Chinese takeaways are invited to take part in a contest in the heart of London’s China Town. Each is passionate about their own style of cooking, but they all have very different ideas about what makes the best Chinese dishes: for one it’s the classic recipes we are familiar with here in the UK, handed down through three generations; for another it’s a fusion of styles from across Asia; and for the third it’s traditional Chinese home-cooking using exotic ingredients.

Each believes their version of the takeaway is the best, but it’s down to Tom and his expert judge, writer and chef Ching He-Huang, to decide a winner.

The Best Of British Takeaways: Chinese Episode 2 (of 3) airs on Tuesday 21 March 2017 from 7.00-8.00pm on BBC Two.
