Sean’s culinary adventure of the North is back throughout August on the Food Network channel. Tune in tomorrow morning to see Sean board The Scarborough Flyer, a classic locomotive from the 1920s. His challenge is to cook lunch for a carriage full of local dignitaries but this is a lot easier said than done, since the train’s kitchen is only just big enough for Sean to turn around in. To make matters worse, Sean has a disaster with his gelatin. All in all, the train is not the only thing that works up a head of steam on the trip from Crewe to Scarborough!
Sean’s next culinary challenge is to persuade 30 guests at a Blackpool B&B to rekindle their love affair for a local delicacy by serving up the best black pudding in the North for breakfast. Will the plates come back to the kitchen clean or will Sean be left with a mountain of blood sausage?
From Blackpool he heads to Manchester, to work an eight-hour night shift at Smithfield Market, packing and selling veg. He then cooks up a vegetarian Indian feast in the car park for 120 of his co-workers. He ends up in Ripon, where he challenges the city’s residents to a traditional apple and cheese pie bake-off. It appears that Sean’s biggest challenger is a four year-old!
