Heston's Feasts is a cooking program that features a group of celebrity dinner guests eating foods prepared by Chef Heston Blumenthal. Chef Blumenthal is no stranger to preparing interesting and delicious fare. His restaurants in the United Kingdom have won numerous awards for its outstanding foods.
In each show, Blumenthal puts his own spin on ancient recipes that date back hundreds of years. The chef does his best to duplicate the foods with the exact ingredients, all the way down to the spices. On the occasion he cannot find an item, he chooses a substitute that will suffice. The chef also sometimes combines conventional cooking techniques with ancient techniques to preserve a sense of nostalgia. Blumenthal travels to many areas including Rome, medieval Britain, and Victorian England to find delicious and interesting recipes that were ancestral favorites. He manages to duplicate feasts from King Henry VIII and Caligula. The chef also creates menu themes based on books and historical events such as Alice in Wonderland, Heston's 70s Feast, Heston's Titanic Feast, Heston's Gothic Horror Feast, and Heston's Chocolate Factory Feast. Blumenthal prepares an appetizer, starter, main course, and pudding. Some of the foods he prepares include blackbird pie, meatfruit, mock turtle soup, pig's nipple scratchings, doormouse lollipop, and rice pudding.
Once the food is prepared, the chef invites food critics, historians, British nobles, comedians, and celebrities to sample the dishes and get their assessment. Celebrity guests include Alex Snow, Fay Ripley, Adam Garcia, Edwina Curry, Nicholas Parsons, Philip Rhys, and Mark Watson. Chef Blumenthal first brings out the appetizer to tantalize the guests' pallet and raise the curiosity of what's to come next. He follows the menu with the delicious starter, followed by the main course, which is usually the biggest hit. After guests have had time to absorb the meal, dessert is served. Blumenthal never disappoints as the diners seem to thoroughly enjoy the fare.
