SCARBOROUGH will feature on European TV screens after a top international TV chef visited the town.
Sarah Wiener sailed from Scarborough’s harbour on Malcolm Ward and Bluey Sheader’s trawler Provider while filming her latest television series, The Culinary Adventures of Sarah Wiener.
Sarah, who has restaurants in Berlin, caught cod on the overnight trip which she then fried at the renowned Magpie Cafe in Whitby.
She also visited The Newcastle Packet in Sandside, a popular haunt of fishermen, and had her picture added to the pub’s hall of fame.
Terry Messenger, location producer, said: “Sarah was very impressed with the fish and chips.
“They really enjoyed their stay and the cuisine made up for the British weather.”
The show saw Sarah cook fish and chips for a judging panel made up of four members of the lifeboat crew, who judged Sarah’s cooking against that of the Magpie Cafe’s own chef.
Terry added: “We chose the Magpie Cafe because of its reputation for fish and chips. We were amazed at how devoted the clientele was.”
After the judging, the crew were serenaded with a sea shanty.
Sarah’s new 10-part series featuring Scarborough will be broadcast on the Franco-German TV network ARTE.
