Homemade Takeouts

James proves that fast food does not need to cost a fortune, as he prepares a menu of must-have, home-cooked takeaway meals. These include cod and chips in a beer batter with homemade mushy peas, a Thai chilli beef classic, and chicken in black bean sauce.

Historian Annie Gray cooks the curry that delighted Victorian dinner tables, and husband and wife team James and Nicola Adedeji reveal how they turned their family recipe for African sauce into an award-winning business.
