About Heston's Fantastical Food

Heston's Fantastical Food

Culinary alchemist Heston Blumenthal brings back the wonder of childhood foods as he builds epic scale versions of Britain's favourites.

In the first episode, Heston tackles breakfast, creating the world's largest boiled egg and cereal. Next, he focuses on the ice cream van, a great British tradition that provided the soundtrack to so many childhoods, and builds the world's largest ice cream cone, complete with a flake.

In episode 3, Heston celebrates the tea break by making the world's biggest packet of biscuits, the largest pyramid tea bag and a drink containing the flavours of cucumber sandwiches and Victoria sponge. Next, it's time for a sugar fix as Heston makes his own Willy Wonka-inspired giant sweet shop.

In episode 5, Heston builds a giant, edible pie and turns it into a fully functioning pub. He also makes a billiard table from cod, tartare sauce and pea mousse, with pickled egg billiard balls. Next, Heston celebrates the packed lunch by building a super-sized sandwich with unexpected 'rogue' fillings. There's also the world's biggest crisps and the world's biggest KitKat.

In the final episode of the series, Heston Blumenthal tackles the challenge of making the ultimate Christmas dinner, with pig's head, edible Christmas decorations and the biggest pudding ever.
