Jim Abbott joins me in the kitchen at Peckham Manor for an eight course tasting menu of food from his motherland Yorkshire and my great city London as we battle it out to see who has the best food. But we need you to eat the food and decide.
THE HEAVYWEIGHT BATTLE
Yorkshire Jim Abbott V London Ronnie Murray
Pease pudding & ham croquettes
Toad in the hole, Lincolnshire poacher, Yorkshire chutney
Whipped Peckham Manor smoked salmon, Graceburn cheese, chives
Roast rib of beef, mushroom gratin
Fish n chips, mushy peas, HP sauce
Jim Abbott hales from Yorkshire and has worked with me for many years he was head chef at Mark Hix Hixter restaurant, before moving to wright brothers as head chef of the Soho site. He is culturally at the newly opened Isabelle in Mayfair. A chef Heavyweight for sure and trust me the boy can cook. He is like all good Yorkshiremen, very proud of his roots. But its time to settle the score and have the cook off we need to find out that we down south have the better food so I'll be cooking up 4 classic London dishes to go alongside Jim's 4 Yorkshire ones. Then after every course, we will have a vote to see what you thought. The points will be added up as we go though the night in the end there can be only one winner but who will it be?
