On their show, they are joined each week by a different guest who describes their own dream menu, made up of whatever dishes they want from their life and from around the globe, brought to them in an imaginary way by the genie waiter, James Acaster.

On our show, we (Tommo & Megsy) interview each other about our perfect dream menu options from all over the world. The best bread, starter, Main, side dish & dessert. It's going to get a little ridiculous as we go all out with our ultimate favourites...
