The Babylon Brigade

Reporters' despatches from Iraq, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iceland, the United States of America and Italy. Presented by Kate Adie.

In this edition: a greyish sticky dough called fufu from the Democratic Republic of Congo; pesto Genovese from Italy, made as it used to be, with a pestle and mortar; there's a dish of smoked puffin from Iceland and some of the finest cannabis lollipops in the American west. All this culinary exotica comes as part of this weekly insight, analysis, colour and description served up by reporters covering major stories around the world.
