Sprint’s chef/business development manager Matt Goodman headed to Essex earlier this month to help out with a new TV project for Jamie Oliver.

Matt and his colleagues fitted a kitchen for a cafe on Southend Pier for Jamie and Jimmy’s Food Fight Club, a massive adventure taking on the Europeans with great British food.

“This job had to be turned round pretty quickly,” said Matt.

“We fitted some equipment including sinks and fridges and are looking forward to seeing the show on Channel 4 in December.”

Jamie has joined forces with his friend Jimmy Doherty for the series. Partly filmed in front of an audience in the cafe, the pair will bring the country together in their love of British food, taking it overseas to face-off with their Continental counterparts.

Each week a food theme (sausages, desserts or cheese) is chosen and Jamie and Jimmy go on a road trip, looking for the best examples in Britain. They then take these dishes and products overseas to battle it out with either the French, Germans or Italians to discover which is best.

The programme was created by Fresh One Productions and the first episode airs at 9pm on Thursday. December 6.
