Episode 3

Nigel Slater and Adam Henson continue their mission to reconnect Britain with the origins of food. Nigel shows how to make popular processed foods, and Adam attempts to grow rice.

Nigel and Adam continue their mission to reconnect Britain with the origins of food. The UK consumes well over a billion chickens a year and, with chicken appearing on almost every takeaway and restaurant menu in the country, it is not surprising that it is Britain's favourite meat.

Nigel travels to Manchester for inspiration from local restaurants to help him spice up some recipes back on the farm in the Cotswolds. From chicken kiev to avocado dips, our shopping baskets reveal our love of foreign fare, but Nigel shows how to make these processed foods at home.

Adam, meanwhile, accepts the ultimate farming challenge - to successfully grow exotic crops such as rice and Asian mushrooms in time to feed a hungry crowd of guests with a selection of homemade international dishes.
