Cooking show. MasterChef judge Monica Galetti steps outside her comfort zone as she swaps her chef's whites for wellies and heads for the Jura Mountains in eastern France.

MasterChef judge Monica Galetti steps outside her comfort zone as she swaps her chef's whites for wellies and heads for the Jura Mountains in eastern France to get hands-on with the produce she uses every day in the London restaurant where she works.

Monica embarks on a road trip through one of the most beautiful yet least known regions in France, where, for the first time in her cooking career, she spends time with producers. She sees for herself how their passion translates into world-class ingredients. Immersing herself in a traditional way of life, she joins a boar hunt and faces up to the responsibility of eating meat. From beauty contests for cows to cutting down trees, she unlocks the secret to making some of our favourite French cheeses and discovers an ancient profession she never knew existed.

Finally, on the slopes of Mont d'Or, Monica cooks up a rustic feast using ingredients she's gathered herself, fulfilling a personal ambition to live off the land.
