Best bites from the British food champion and pub owner, Tom Kerridge.
Tom Kerridge in his own words...
" If you could only eat one again, would it be crisps or chips?
Neither because I’m not doing carbs at the minute, but if I was it would definitely, definitely be chips!
Sunday lunch or Friday curry?
*bellows* SUNDAY LUNCH! Sunday luuuunch!
Croissant or full English?
Full English! Absolutely!
Bacon sandwich or beans on toast?
Bacon sandwich. A place without bacon is a really bad place.
What’s the ultimate way to cook toast?
On a stick in front of a campfire.
When did you last eat a kebab?
A long time ago. From a proper greasy kebab van? About three years ago. But actually I had one last year from a place in Shepherd's Bush and it was amazing.
What’s your favourite cookbook?
Marco Pierre White’s 'White Heat', without a shadow of a doubt. Without that book I wouldn’t be where I am now.
Tomatoes or onions?
What would you order from a cocktail menu?
A non-alcoholic lime and soda as I don’t drink at the minute.
What’s the best birthday cake you’ve ever had?
A fridge cake that was made for me for my 40th by my good mate Nicky. She never cooks anything but she melted down a load of Maltesers and Mars Bars, stuck them together and put them in the fridge."
