TV Taco

DID YOU know that left to their own devices, asparagus spears will grow to the height of a man? -This was but one fact revealed to me by Andrew Webb, 'curator, narrator and designated driver' for Channel Four's 'Big British Food Map'. I introduced the culinarily curious chap to the Royal Academy's temporary dining room, 'Flash' [REVIEW] on Thursday. After lunch we met restaurateur David Waddington ('Bistroteque') and executive Chef, Tom Collins. Tom gleaned plentiful inspiration from a salivating West Coast tour, taking in 'Chez Panisse' and the 'French Laundry'...
Yo can read Andrew's report, 'Feeling Flash', HERE.
