Overview

In each episode of this series, Elijah Quashie, best known as "The Chicken Connoisseur", turns his unique critique to the finest, most extravagant, weirdest and most wonderful bargain bucket foods, drinks, cars, events and jewellery the planet has to offer.

In each episode, Elijah and his friends journey to unexpected urban locations, exploring the quirks, cheap eats, luxury and culture in his unique style. Everything is given the "Peng" treatment, whether it is a £2.50 Philli cheesesteak sub or a £250k gold plated Kobe Beef T Bone, a mega hostel with 50 bunk beds per room or a 8* exclusive spa retreat.

Across the series Elijah meets the family who produces the world's cheapest bottle of fizzy wine and then goes on to travel to the region of Champagne to try a glass of a £200,000 diamond incrusted one. Hilarity ensues as he gets his head around the two very different price points and his hang over.

In another episode, drives the world's cheapest car to the world’s most expensive car. He road tests both vehicles and even gets to see these cars being made and then sold.

This is not just a series about cheap and expensive things, it also sees Elijah travel the globe and go on cultural experiences, all receiving the "Peng" review treatment, with of course, plenty of chicken along the way.
