Heston Blumenthal cooks for the public at Great Yarmouth Market Place

Published: 15 Aug 2013

The restaurateur and television chef visited the market place, famous for its chip stalls, to film for his new Channel 4 show, Heston's Fantastical Food. 
The programme, due to air later this year, focuses on dishes that built Britain and sees Heston travelling the country, taking a different iconic British dish each week, deconstructing it and rebuilding it with a suitably Blumenthal-twist. 
In Yarmouth this afternoon, he headed to the well-established Pie and Pea stall where he grabbed a pan and set about cooking mushy peas for an episode all about fish and chips. 
The chef also posed for photographs and chatted to members of the public, before offering samples of his pea-dish to passers-by. 
Duncan Mallett, market manager at Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said: "I had a quick chat with him and I thanked for coming to Yarmouth when he could have chosen north Norfolk, which is a bit Chelsea-on-Sea. He said he was happy to be here."
