Renowned celeb chef Jamie Oliver and his longtime mate Jimmy Doherty have a love for great times spent with good friends while eating, and who can fault them. In this decidedly light-hearted series, the two pals take that spirit of bonhomie to a business venture – a pop-up cafe in Southend Pier – and use the experience to trumpet the virtues of various examples of British cuisine, ranging from sausages to bull testicles, to their eager bevy of customers, which occasionally includes a famous friend or two.
