TV Dinners - Channel 4
Highly acclaimed Channel 4 series on dinner parties presented by Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, including internationally controversial programme on Placenta Paté party.
“This extraordinary programme showed there is no need to go off to foreign climes for anthropological exotica.
It’s all happening in a kitchen in Hull”.
“I came to mock and maybe retch. Yes, it was the grossest thing I’ve ever seen on TV but I ended up
curiously moved and enlightened.
“It’s one of the strengths of the series that it combines absolute good manners on location with a complete indifference to viewer’s feelings at home – it completely ignores contemporary taboos.”
Independent on Sunday
“The best cookery show in the world ever.”
