Pub chef Tom Kerridge is hosting a new BBC One show starting this week.

Spring Kitchen, which will run for three weeks and is a sister show to Saturday Kitchen presented by James Martin, sees Kerridge and his guests cook and demonstrate a range of recipes which showcase the best spring ingredients.

Kerridge, whose pub the Hand & Flowers in Marlow, is the only pub in the UK to hold two Michelin stars, also interviews guests including well-known restaurant chefs and celebrities.

He is also currently featuring as a judge in BBC Two’s Great British Menu 2014. Kerridge’s main course won Great British Menu 2010 and his winning dish of slow cooked duck with duck fat chips and gravy  is still among the pub’s best-selling main courses.


The Hand & Flowers was voted the UK’s top gastropub for the third consecutive year in January in the Budweiser Budvar Top 50 Gastropub Awards 2014, organised by the Publican’s Morning Advertiser.

This week’s Great British Menu sees three pub chefs battling it out to win the South West heat. Chefs Josh Eggleton of the Pony & Trap in Chew Magna, near Bristol; Emily Watkins of the Kingham Plough, Kingham, Oxfordshire and Dominic Chapman of the Royal Oak in Paley Street, Berkshire are creating dishes that mark the 70th​ anniversary of D-Day to win a place in the final.

James Durrant of the Plough, Longparish, Hampshire, will feature in the South East heat later this month.

The next edition of Spring Kitchen is on BBC2 at 12pm on Saturday. Great British Menu is on every night this week on BBC2 at 7.30pm.
