Duration: 30 minutes

Nigel Slater creates a week's worth of simple but delicious meals from ingredients that are often overlooked.

In this episode, Nigel proves that adventurous doesn't have to mean complicated. Just by exploring unusual ingredients like squid and rabbit, or being a bit more open to how we cook things, Nigel shows how easy it is to inject some excitement back into the nightly supper routine.

Nigel then heads to Cornwall, where he unearths some rather unusual crops to cook with, thanks to the Bedser family and their experimental vegetable patch.

    My favourite recipe was the buffalo burgers. I added some red onion to give it a bit of 'bite'. The reason I liked them so much was because I saw the lovely animals in their natural habitat living a happy and contented life and that they actually tasted of something!

    Nigel's chocolate cookies are off the scale and very easy to make. I've done them a few times now - modified a bit using raisins instead of nuts. The family also loved the buffalo burgers – I added a bit of chopped onion and a handful of oregano.
