To celebrate the Rugby World Cup in France, Keith Floyd visits some unusual locations with a collection of players. Floyd is famous for his love of France but he is also a passionate Rugby fan - when the program was first suggested he said it will combine his three favourite things - "France, food and Rugby." He begins by cooking a classic Champagne dish on a boat on the Seine in Paris with 2003 RWC winner, Matt Dawson of England. Dawson is no beginner in the kitchen himself - he won Celebrity MasterChef. Floyd then goes on to Cassis, just outside Marseille where he prepares a stunning fish dish in a stunning chateau just above the harbour. With Floyd to chat about Rugby and French food are two World Cup winners and players who have spent time with French clubs, Joe Roff of Australia and Dan Luger of England. He finishes up in Toulouse, the capital of French Rugby and faces his toughest test of all, cooking the classic Toulouse dish, cassoulet for a group of players and staff at Stade Toulousain, the greatest Rugby club in France.
