Store Cupboard Staples

James shares his easy but delicious home-cooked recipes made with the help of some store cupboard staples. These include the world's best macaroni cheese made from dried pasta, a cheat's tomato soup with basil made from tinned tomatoes, and a white chocolate and whiskey croissant pudding. Historian Gerard Baker delves into the history behind our store cupboard spices, using them to create a medieval 'farced partridge,' and artisan food producer Nick Greef explains how he has turned his South African grandfather's recipe for the perfect biltong into an award-winning business.
