A Taste of Britain

Series 1 - 30 Minute Versions: 7. North Essex

Thaxted near Saffron Walden welcomes Janet Street-Porter and Brian Turner for this episode of Taste of Britain that finds itself in North Essex. Guinea fowl is the order of the day for our first food producer visit, and Brian uses it to cook a delicious supper dish with herbs.

Janet and Brian learn about train driving the hard way on the Colne Valley Railway. Finally, our celebration cook is made from strawberries at the wonderful Wash Fruit Farm, where Brian creates a queen of puddings scented with local lavender.
