Fred Sirieix takes a very familiar face off to France with him for a gourmet tour in this week’s Remarkable Places to Eat on BBC2

There’s a lovely reunion on the cards for Fred Sirieix, as he catches up with his old boss, two-Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr (pictured above), on a journey to Paris to sample the culinary delights of the City of Light in this week’s Remarkable Places to Eat on BBC2.

Fred is thrilled when Michel takes him to the swanky and rather pricey La Tour D’Argent – speciality, pressed duck – and he also gets a peek at the restaurant’s impressive wine cellar, which was saved from Nazi invaders in World War Two.

Later on, the boys track down some more affordable delicacies, including the best baguettes in Paris, and Michel even tries his hand at making some himself for the very first time!

Then it’s off to a top brasserie for a classic seafood platter.

Yum!
