We’re all familiar with Morgan Spurlock’s Super Size Me, but this series from UK celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal takes the concept of “super-sizing” to new and indeed, fantastic, heights. As a foodie who loves a challenge, Blumenthal sets out here to create giant versions of cherished meals and treats, in order to restore the wonder and excitement over food that we had as children. Expect to see more-than-generous portions of pub grub, the world’s biggest packet of Rolos, and a tea bag that could potentially serve all of London in this whimsical, appetite-whetting series.
