Distant Shores

Much of the great food we love is inspired by recipes from other countries. This journey is all about uncovering both familiar and more surprising recipes that have arrived on British dinner-tables from distant shores.

This episode's three mums all hail from Northern Ireland but cook food from all corners of the globe. Karen has Spanish delights to share, including a sensational paella and a simple but delicious recipe for Catalan tomato bread. Helen Mills cooks family recipes from Guyana including a fascinating take on chicken curry served with a handmade roti bread. And the final mum is, in fact, a dad! Conolly shares partridge escabeche, breasts of partridge pickled in white wine and vinegar, and some classic empanadas - Argentinian recipes from his mother cooked with great Northern Irish produce. All this culinary travel gets the Bikers' taste buds flowing, and they bring mulligatawny soup and a perfect pavlova to the party.

At the recipe fair, the Bikers cook their take on an international classic, haddock mornay, while food historian Gerard Baker invites the recipe fair visitors to a bakery challenge - plaited bread.
