Further details

Big Zuu takes his food truck to Croydon to meet comedian Jimmy Carr and cook the ultimate meal ready for when he steps off stage. Taking account for Jimmy's occasional vegan lifestyle, but also his love of a dirty fast food, might be a challenge for most chefs - but not Big Zuu. A trip to a vegan café provides inspiration for a seitan kebab, while a truffle-hunting expedition is sure to impress such a classy customer.

With his trusty sidekicks Hyder and Tubsey, Zuu knows that impressing this British comedy legend could be the perfect way of ensuring his reputation spreads throughout the comedy circuit, but Jimmy's first impressions of Zuu's cooking capabilities do not bode well...

Before he was a grime artist, the rapper Big Zuu worked the grill at Nando's and his passion for food has endured ever since. In this new series, Zuu pairs up with one comic each week to whip up a satisfying post-show meal from his travelling food truck. In tonight's opening episode, he is joined by one-liner stalwart Jimmy Carr after a show in Croydon. Carr is a sometime vegan and also a fast food fiend, so a seitan kebab is on the menu, as well as a truffle side dish to cater to Carr's taste for luxury.
