One of TV’s most colourful characters brought the cameras to Queens Park in Crewe on Saturday (June 16).
Heston Blumenthal, the popular chef who has featured in a number of series on Channel 4, made an appearance in preparation for his new TV series, which is to be launched on Channel 4 towards the end of the year.
Known for his multi-sensory approach to cooking, Heston has previously shown his ground-breaking techniques in the How To Cook Like Heston programme as well as his incredible historic feasts.
In Crewe, Heston spoke to park visitors about their childhood memories of ice cream.
His new TV series aims to bring back to life the fun and nostalgia of Britain’s favourite foods. In each episode, Heston researches people’s favourite eating experiences and puts his unique creative on them.
Through fun and nostalgia he makes people take time out of their busy lives and come together as a community to rekindle their fond food memories.
Heston used Queens Park to host an Ice Cream Olympics and found out what visitors remembered about their favourite ice creams. Free ice creams were served by Whitby Morrison, of Crewe Gates Farm, courtesy of Channel Four.
