Members of the Holyport Women's Institute and chickens reared by a Furze Platt student are on Heston Blumenthal's new TV show at 8pm tonight.
The Michelin starred Fat Duck owner challenged three institute members to cook the perfect scrambled eggs at Bray Village Hall as part of How to Cook Like Heston on Channel 4.
The eggs were provided by 17-year-old Jack Bennet who runs his own business rearing rare breeds of chickens, making bespoke hutches and selling eggs.
Some of his birds even appear in the opening credits.
WI member Pauline Janikoun, who took part in the filming in October, said it was an 'exciting' day.
She added: "We were also treated to egg and bacon ice cream. I think when you first hear of it your instinct is to not like it but it was actually very delicious."
