Big Chef Takes On Little Chef premiered on PLG on January 6, 2010. Little Chef has been a British institution for decades, but the restaurant chain has been on the verge of financial collapse for years. Enter Heston Blumenthal, an acclaimed three Michelin-starred chef. Can he make the British public fall in love with Little Chef all over again while reviving classic English food in the process? In Big Chef Takes On Little Chef, Chef Blumenthal takes an extraordinary culinary challenge: he has six months to come up with a new menu and design to help put the old-fashioned chain of roadside cafes back on the map. He must forget fine dining and get a grip on the real cuisine ordinary people want to eat.
