Food & Drink (BBC Two, tomorrow, 8.30pm) | THERE are so many
cookery shows on British TV at the moment, it's amazing it took the
BBC over a decade to revive their popular magazine show, the
self-explanatory Food & Drink. If you can't quite remember the
original, it ran from the early 1980s to 2002, and made a star of wine
critic Jilly Goolden, who became famous for her florid descriptions of
cheeky little vintages. Maybe the revamped show's new drinks expert
Kate Goodman will turn out to have an equally unusual way with words, as
she joins the show's other new presenter, Michel Roux Jr, pictured.
In the first episode, they are joined by guest chef Tom Kerridge, who
explains what makes the perfect roast, and restaurateur Oliver Peyton,
who thinks we're still not making the most of British produce,
despite a slew of programmes encouraging us to do just that.
