Who or­dered a curry?

JAMIE AND JIMMY RUS­TLE UP A SPICY DISH FOR THE TIMELORD IN FIRST OF A NEW SE­RIES

Western Daily Press - - Today’s Tv -

JAMIE Oliver and pal Jimmy Do­herty are back with more buddy ban­ter and end of the pier hu­mour with the sixth se­ries of their ‘Saf­fend’ foodie show.

Be­gin­ning as ‘just an­other cook­ery pro­gramme’ a few years ago, this has gath­ered pace and now pulls in some top notch guests. Con­firmed for this run is the pretty im­pres­sive line-up of: Sir Pa­trick Ste­wart, Jes­sica En­nis-Hill, Jodie Whit­taker, Mar­tin Free­man, Jes­sica Chas­tain, Harry Hill, Danny DeVito, Romesh Ran­ganathan, Stephen Fry, Rus­sell Howard, Dav­ina McCall and Stephen Man­gan.

The Southend pier cafe seems to be sec­ond only to Gra­ham’s red couch as the place to chat (or pro­mote your lat­est work).

“Let’s get that caff open,” says Jamie, with usual over-the-top lev­els of en­thu­si­asm.

But there’s plenty to en­joy here, with Doc­tor Who’s Jodie Whit­taker drop­ping in first for a cook­ery les­son.

There are plenty of TARDIS jokes in the small cafe as she helps the boys rus­tle up a roast pork, com­plete with a dou­ble help­ing of crispy crack­ling, and an authen­tic Thai beef Mas­saman curry that Jodie’s been dream­ing about since she was 18.

Watch out for Jamie’s face as Jodie re­veals the se­cret in­gre­di­ent to the spag bol her mum made her grow­ing up. And the ac­tress also talks about play­ing one of TV’s big­gest roles.

Mean­while, Jamie and Jimmy are also back on the road. This time they’re cam­paign­ing to keep sus­tain­able Bri­tish brown crabs on the menu. And Jimmy uses his un­her­alded DIY skills to cre­ate a makeshift bar­be­cue out of an old oil drum for the Har­lequins ladies rugby squad.
