Premiering on September 26, Andy Bates’ Street Feasts marks the first UK-commissioned series for Food Network UK.
The 10-part, half-hour series, starring London chef and market trader Andy Bates and announced last year, will take Britain’s most famous dishes and give them a modern street food makeover.
Bates will visit local markets, events and specialty food producers in the UK, cooking alongside people he meets. Along the way classic British staples, such as scotch eggs and black pudding, are reworked to become a little more modern.
Bates will also include elements from the new British food landscape, with Caribbean, Spanish, Welsh and Indian influences in his new street food creations.
The series was commissioned by Food Network’s head of commissioning and original content, Sue Walton, and is executive produced by Sweet TV’s David Nottage.
“For Food Network UK’s first commissioned series, it’s great that we are creating a series that celebrates traditional British food, and no one does British street food the way Andy Bates does,” said Nick Thorogood, managing director for Food Network EMEA.
