East Sussex

The Incredible Spice Men Episode 1 of 5

Chefs Tony Singh and Cyrus Todiwala want to transform the way British dishes are cooked at home. The two old friends believe Britain has some of the best produce in the world but think we are missing a trick when it comes to cooking with spices.

Tony and Cyrus visit East Sussex. In Hastings, they spice up some locally caught fish - dover sole with lime and ginger - before taking on traditional fish and chips, making a spicy marinade for their cod fillets. They then travel inland and visit a farmer who breeds rare middle white pigs. After slow-cooking pulled pork with cinnamon and cloves, Tony and Cyrus demonstrate the dazzling effect cinnamon and chilli powder can have on vanilla ice cream.

Spices can also give a whole new dimension to leftovers, a delicious example being bread and butter pudding with orange and cardamom.

Throughout their journey, Tony and Cyrus offer practical advice on how to buy, store and utilise spices, showing how easy it is to enhance simple dishes at home.
