Episode InformationEver since they first met on the set of 'The Lord of the Rings' film series back in 1999, in which they portrayed the Hobbits Merry and Pippin, actors Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan have developed a close friendship in the years since. The on-screen “bromance” between their Hobbit characters has transcended Middle Earth to the real world. The two actors still manage to get up to plenty of mischief and shenanigans and remain part of each other’s lives.In this six-episode travel series will follow Billy and Dom to six different locations around the world, each with their own unique culinary culture. In every episode, the two actors will explore the flavours on offer – seeking out local dishes, some famous, and some new. They’ll explore the way these foods are cultivated, cooked and served in each country for a deeper understanding of how and why each place they visit developed its unique cuisine.
