Hospitality industry veteran Roy Ackerman has teamed up with the Waitrose Good Food Guide to produce a series of exclusive films on some of the top-rated chefs in this year’s guide for Coolcucumber.tv.
Ackerman, winner of the coveted Lifetime Achievement Catey award in 2010 and founder of
Coolcucumber.tv, said: “To be in partnership with this renowned food guide will undoubtedly contribute to raising the profile of all those talented chefs and outstanding restaurants featured on Coolcucumber.tv.”
Coolcucumber.tv is is aimed at food and drink lovers and restaurant followers and features some of the most innovative and exciting people working in hospitality.
Its programmes showcase the best of the UK’s chefs and their restaurants and has a commitment to promoting good food and drink.
Elizabeth Carter, consultant editor of the Waitrose Good Food Guide also commented: “When looking for unbiased, authoritative restaurant recommendations, those in the know turn to Waitrose Good Food Guide.
“If you happen to be looking for a straightforward insight into what it’s like to be one of Britain’s best-known chefs, without the shenanigans displayed by most TV ‘foodie’ programmes, coolcucumber.tv is the place to look.
“That the two got together to collaborate on a fascinating series of films celebrating the Good Food Guide’s top ten chefs and their restaurants was inevitable – and a huge pleasure.”
The series kicks off with a trip to Simon Rogan’s Cumbrian restaurant L’Enclume, which once again scored a perfect 10 out of 10 but this year knocked Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck in Bray off the top spot.
Nine more films will follow, with subjects announced as each programme is made available weekly starting on 10 September.
