The Whitehalls, plaice with buttery capers & shallots and a rosé
Nick and Angela welcome Michael and Hilary Whitehall to DISH HQ.
Before making his name as Jack Whitehall’s TV travel companion, Michael Whitehall had an illustrious career as a theatrical agent and producer. His clients included Daniel Day-Lewis, Judi Dench, Colin Firth and Michael Fassbender. He and Hilary met while she was in search of new representation, while he, she says, was looking for a wife. Jack and Michael have made five series of Travels With My Father for Netflix and co-authored How To Survive Family Holidays with Hilary.
Hilary Whitehall is a massive foodie and furnished Angela with plenty of detail on their dietary requirements. Armed with this information Angela prepares a mouth-watering pan-fried plaice with buttery capers and shallots and Nick pours one of the Whitehalls’ favourites, a M De Minuty Provence Rose.
The Whitehalls are hysterical and this episode is brimful of anecdotes about food, family life and famous people. Hilary shares her passion for Waitrose, Michael recalls the questionable advice he gave a Hollywood actor and we hear one of Jack Whitehall’s most embarrassing moments.
