U's to be on TV on February 7th.
Colchester United’s players and staff will feature on Channel 4 in a couple of weeks time, following the return of Jamie & Jimmy’s Food Fight Club.
Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty came to the Weston Homes Community Stadium in August to find out more about how the club work with local suppliers and to see how the U’s Head Chef Karl Smith might be able to slot the Colchester Pudding into the U’s matchday menus.
The Colchester Pudding was revealed to a VIP audience – featuring the U’s management and players – at the Town Hall and is set to feature at the Weston Homes Community Stadium in 2014.
The tapioca and summer fruits dish went down a storm and is one of a number of recipes that Jamie and Jimmy are trying to revive and, following their appearance in Colchester, the duo were presented with U’s shirts to take with them on their travels.
Jamie added: "Colchester is a bubble of wonderful produce - great seafood, lovely local wine, Tiptree and jam making - it's an amazing part of the country.
"Colchester Pudding is a great pudding that's been lost, it's been forgotten and it should be on every gastro-pub menu in this city. The great thing about the recipe, apart from being delicious, is that it can be expressed in lots of different ways."
The U’s and the show based in Colchester is due on air on Friday, February 7th.
