4 x 60 minutes for Channel 4
There’s a food revolution going on with new hidden restaurants opening in far flung places and extraordinary venues. And last summer, as a challenge to himself, Michel Roux Jr is setting up his own hidden restaurant far away from his 2 Michelin starred London restaurant, Le Gavroche.
In each episode Michel visits three different restaurants and from each he takes the inspiration; creating a unique three course menu that he serves at the end of the programme to a crowd of locals who have booked into his summer long hidden Oast House restaurant.
Helping him on this adventure is chef Freddy Bird; a man who created his own hidden restaurant in a once dilapidated Lido in a back street of Bristol. Michel sets Freddy the mission to leave no stone unturned to find the unlikeliest venues, from a self-build restaurant in the wilds of Scotland, to a smart restaurant hidden in a caravan park and a four seater bistro in a Citroen van. With new hidden restaurants opening every week, Freddy also checks in on young hopefuls who are creating their own unique dining rooms and eateries; from a cable car street food stall to a Latin American Bustaurant.
