Steve Coogan (This Time With Alan Partridge) and Rob Brydon (Gavin & Stacey) play versions of themselves in this improvised food-based travel tour series. The stories are fictional but based around their real personas.
When Steve is commissioned by the food supplement of a Sunday newspaper to review half a dozen restaurants, he decides to mix work with pleasure and plans a trip around the north with his food-loving American girlfriend. But when she decides to leave him and return to the States, Steve is faced with a week of meals for one – not quite the trip he had in mind.
Having exhausted all other options, he reluctantly calls Rob, the only person left he can think of who might be available. Never one to turn down a free lunch, Rob agrees and together they set off for a culinary adventure.
Over the course of the journey, the ultimate odd couple find themselves debating the big questions of life, such as how did I get to be here and where do I go next, over a series of culinary delights.
