Foodies champion British produce. Mary Berry fights to revive real dairy ice cream whilst Raymond Blanc campaigns to get trout back on British plates.
Raymond Blanc can not understand why we are not eating more trout as it's both sustainable and delicious. He casts his rod in the river Wye after being given permission by the landowner to fish for Wild Rainbow Trout. Then in Camarthen, Wales, he takes trout to the people to see how well they know their fish and in the revival kitchen he cooks three tasty trout dishes to encourage us all to seek out this fabulous fish.
Mary Berry is on a mission to revive one of her most favourite foods, ice cream, after discovering that just two and half per cent milk protein is required to name a product 'ice cream'. She wants us all to go back to basics and learn how to make real dairy ice cream. She uncovers some of the earliest ice cream secrets by exploring a 19th century ice house and confectioner's kitchen at Syon House and then goes to University College London to brush up on her ice cream chemistry. Equipped with an old fashioned street seller's bike and her home-made dairy ice cream, she tackles holiday makers on Eastbourne's seafront to convert them to her cause.
Never one to jealously guard his secrets and passion, Raymond has championed and nurtured some of our most famous chefs personally in his kitchens, including Marco Pierre White & Martin Burge. Raymond also presented three series of The Restaurant between 2007-2009, where couples competed for the unique opportunity to go into business with the restaurateur. Raymond’s remarkable contribution to the UK's culinary scene earned him an OBE from Her Majesty the Queen in 2007.
