Food writer Nigel Slater raids his cupboards, fridge and vegetable patch to create a week's worth of delicious meals.
The remains of the Sunday roast are the starting point for Nigel as he makes amazing food out of seemingly uninspiring leftovers. It may sound frugal, but Nigel uses his culinary creativity to show why he is one of the nation's favourite foodies.
The recipes are uncomplicated and easy to remember, but the resulting dishes are simply spectacular. Nigel also visits local allotment holders, and is challenged to cook something on the plot using the very freshest of ingredients.
