"Heston’s Fantastical Foods”
Premieres Monday, August 28 at 10 PM ET/PT on Cooking Channel
 
          World-renowned Chef Heston Blumenthal creates amazing, supersized versions of meals and treats, bringing us back to the sensations of wonder and excitement for food. From the world’s largest boiled egg and cereal on an epic scale, to a gigantic tea pot, to creating the magic of Willy Wonka’s edible world, and a festive look at how the Henry VIII court ate, this magical series will wow, entertain and enthrall.
 
          In the premiere episode, Heston tackles the meal our mom's told us never to miss, breakfast. From the delight of finding the toy in the cereal box to dipping toast in a boiled egg, it was a time of real excitement and joy. Nowadays for most adults breakfast has become a chore, a cereal bar grabbed on the run or something we skip altogether. Now Heston wants to bring back the excitement and rekindle the love for the most important meal of the day. In a massive feat of food engineering, Heston challenges himself to make the World's largest boiled egg. Then Heston caters to the busy commuters by serving breakfast on the go in his very own express train. Their journey to work will never be quite the same again, as Heston reminds us how wonderful breakfast can be.
