Norfolk

Giles Coren embarks on a journey across Britain to discover how our landscape, history and climate shape what we grow and where we grow it.

Giles and the team start in Norfolk, a county where local, seasonal foods are just as important as large-scale commercial farming. Giles learns to tell the difference between a male and female crab when he gets a taste of life as a Cromer fisherman, while Lucy Worsley uncovers the Mexican past of our traditional Christmas turkey. The team also discover how the humble turnip changed the way we farm, and why half of all our sugar comes from a rather grubby Norfolk root.
