Celebrity chef/bullion cube enthusiast/potato chip shill Marco Pierre White will return to British televisions with a new "pet project" that will follow White as he dines at Michelin-starred restaurants all over France. The delightfully named BANG Showbiz reports the as-yet-unnamed show will reveal White's "journey of culinary discovery across France, which sees him sampling the country's best Michelin-starred dishes." White explained the concept to BANG by saying he was looking forward to "going to all the great restaurants that I never went to as a child."

The show seemingly represents a flip-flop for White and his relationship with Michelin food: In July 2013, he slammed Michelin-recognized restaurants, calling their menus "little knick-knacks of food served 12 times." (White, who was the first British chef to earn three Michelin stars, effectively "returned" them upon his retirement in 1999.) There's no date or network for the Michelin/TV project yet. Stay tuned.
