Jay Rayner returns with a new series of BBC Radio 4's culinary panel programme The Kitchen Cabinet. Resident food historian Annie Gray, Catalan cuisine specialist Rachel McCormack, restaurateur Henry Dimbleby and Scottish-Indian fusion chef Angela Malik join Jay to answer questions from an audience in Ayr, Scotland.
Which panellist's ideal chocolate recipe would involve sugar-coated salt? Who disses the mighty baked potato? And how will Annie Gray's 18th Century Basil Wine go down?
Also on the menu this week: techniques for cooking a whole salmon, the class history of hunting and eating game, how to make dessert for sixty people and why now is the time to act if you want to make tasty, edible Christmas presents.
