The 20th edition of coolcucumber tv is now served. It’s ready and waiting at www.coolcucumber.tv.
We begins with a visit to a hidden gem in Soho. Alexis Gauthier’s restaurant is very like a club, with a front door that looks more like the private house it once was. But it’s a club where you don’t have to be a member. Alexis shows us round and talks about his food and his influences.
Robert Cook talks about growing up in a hotel and new talent at his Hotel du Vin chain.
After years at places like Le Gavroche, Thierry Tomasin has set up on his own with Angelus, next door to the stables of Hyde Park.
Gerard Basset, the world’s best sommelier, suggests that English wine is worth a try.
A round up of our favourite European cafes offers suggestions for those autumn weekend breaks.
And finally, Steve Drake talks about his creations on a plate.
That’s it for this time. All the previous programmes remain on the web site, and can all be downloaded for viewing at your leisure. The download video is an iPod, iPhone and Android friendly mp4 video.
