Another quirky and inventive series from Heston
8 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this series on Channel 4 two years ago and being captivated by it. More recently I have re-visited the series on 4OD and I found it just as entertaining as I did first time around, my favourite episodes being the big breakfast one, the giant sweet factory one (although this was the second episode of a Heston series where he used 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' for inspiration), the pub in a pie one and the giant packed lunch one.

Instead of serving up historical feasts to celebrities, Heston produces colossal versions of childhood food favourites such as a 99 ice cream cone and a Christmas pudding (the remainder of which went to homeless shelters) to serve to members of the public, usually in places that had a rich history of sweets or ice cream. The footage of Heston's trial and error experiments, discussing his ideas with experts in fields such as tea and bakery and getting help from members of the public has been perfectly balanced with clips from archived advertisements and old film-style clips of a younger Heston (portrayed convincingly by George Hill) finding a prize in breakfast cereal or visiting a sweet shop for example. I also like the whimsical theme tune (which was used again for Heston's Great British Food), the animated opening sequence and Heston accessing his secret lab via a giant fridge.

All in all, this series uses the same quirky principles from Heston's feast and the same theme as one of his feasts but I liked the overall concept of Heston super-sizing childhood food favourites to get the public excited about them again. 9/10.
