Berry happy new year for Jamie and Jimmy

Manchester Evening News - - TODAY’S TV -

BEST pals Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Do­herty are back in the café at the end of Southend Pier, ready for an­other run of their Fri­day Night Feast.

This is se­ries seven, but there’s no sign of them run­ning out of top-notch celebrity guests to join them in the kitchen yet. Com­ing up over the next few weeks will be the likes of Ant and Dec, Clau­dia Win­kle­man,

Jack Dee, Joe Lycett, Saoirse Ro­nan, Rob Beck­ett, and Su­san Saran­don. And kick­ing things off is Bake Off leg­end and na­tional trea­sure – and one of Jamie’s culi­nary he­roes – the one and only Mary Berry. Which will make the ‘Jamie teaches the celeb how to cook one of their fave dishes’ seg­ment a bit tricky, as let’s be hon­est there’s no way he can teach Bezza any­thing.

The café has had a makeover and got a brand new bar area and this week the boys will be cook­ing up dishes in­clud­ing a gor­geous-look­ing Beef Welling­ton for two and a gooey aro­matic sun­dried tomato, olive, pesto and moz­zarella tear and share bread. With Mary keep­ing an ea­gle eye on pro­ceed­ings and of­fer­ing a lit­tle help, Jamie will recre­ate a nos­tal­gic seafood feast, based on her favourite mem­o­ries of fam­ily hol­i­days spent in the West Coun­try. They’ve pre­par­ing pot­ted shrimp, a retro crab cock­tail and a whole stuffed trout.

J&J also get to in­dulge their child­hood fan­tasies, cook­ing for the troops at RAF Wit­ter­ing.
