There's nothing like the taste of home when you're feeling a bit under the weather, and in this episode James serves up his own pick-me-ups, including a nourishing squash and lime soup and a vitamin-packed poached haddock with egg.

Wild pig farmers Roy and Sarah Hunt visit the kitchen with a selection of their New Forest bacon for James to create his own take on a comforting cheese, tomato and bacon snack. And historian Ivan Day recreates our ancestors' answer to convalescence food - an alcoholic posset.
