Nigel sees how custard brings out the child in us all, from his dad's fabulous Christmas trifle to a fragrant Iraqi dish that takes Linda back to happy days in Baghdad.

His tour of the flavours of modern Britain reveals the secrets behind home-baked Portuguese custard tarts and a delicious Malaysian custard that is not yellow but green. Finally, Nigel comes up with some extravagant profiteroles with a touch of everyone's style put together.
