Sorry, this episode is not currently available


Restaurant critic Giles Coren and writer and performer Sue Perkins try the food of Restoration Britain in the 1660's. They snack on coxcombs, eel pie and copious amounts of small beer.

Sue tries her hand at learning to dance and Giles goes on a hot date with some lobster. With a plague picnic and a gall bladder operation to survive, we see what it was really like to experience the food of Samuel Pepys. But how healthy are all those pies and beers? Sue and Giles find out when they visit the doctors at the end of the week.
