After a mammoth week of Glastonbury, Wimbledon and the British GP, the next seven days on the Red Button show the pace has no sign of slowing. Action at SW19 always goes by in a daze of shocks, strawberries and Sue Barker, so catch your breath and enjoy the chance to relive the highlights. Plus Rick Stein’s food adventures in Indian continue as does the summer festival season, with T in the Park. 

Rick Stein’s India

Rick Stein's India

Rick’s journey delving into the melting pot of Indian cuisine continues with excerpts from episode four. The chef arrives in the city of Lucknow, reputed to be the curry capital of India (possibly the world?). Once a city governed by powerful Muslim rulers, Lucknow chefs earned a fortune creating dishes that would fill their rivals with envy. Reliably informed that the local fare is the ultimate party food, Rick joins thousands of partygoers as they enjoy Eid. Further north in the Punjab, the chef observes the age-old process of making jaggery and is recruited as a guest judge to find Punjab's new 'Star Chef'.
