Tin Roof’s Outline Productions is switching its food and travel format, Remarkable Places to Eat, from the BBC to a new home at More 4 and Channel 4, in partnership with Italian beer brand Birrificio Angelo Poretti.
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.
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.
Laura Mansfield and Helen Veale, Creative Directors, Outline Productions said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Channel 4 and Birrificio Angelo Poretti on Remarkable Places to Eat. Experiencing fantastic food is something we all think about when deciding on visiting somewhere new, and this series will inspire viewers to search out hidden gems as well as established stars, whether they’re looking for a simple, authentic snack from a hole-in-the wall bar to a sumptuous banquet in a beautiful location.”
Fred Sirieix adds: “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. This is not just about restaurants but travel and special shared moments.”
Kate Thomas, who commissioned the series for Channel 4 said: “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.”
Remarkable Places to Eat is an Outline (Wales) production commissioned by commissioning editor Kate Thomas and Jo Street, Head of Daytime & Features, for Channel 4. It is being made in partnership with Birrificio Angelo Poretti (part of Carlsberg group). The format and finished shows are distributed by All3Media International. Initiative, Poretti’s media agency, assisted in facilitating the partnership with Outline Productions and Channel 4.
