The BBC Food & Farming Awards 2018: Finalist stories

Andi Oliver, Tom Parker-Bowles, Mitch Tonks, Jaega Wise and Sheila Dillon are among our judges travelling the country to meet finalists in the BBC Food and Farming Awards 2018.

You know their names, now Sheila Dillon helps tell the stories of the finalists in the BBC Food and Farming Awards 2018. For the last month, our judges, including Tim Hayward, Andi Oliver, Tom Parker-Bowles and Romy Gill have travelled the length and breadth of the UK to meet this year's finalists.

In this programme, our judges meet a Northern Irish farmer who went from never trying salami to producing award winning charcuterie in a year. They visit a local deli and cafe owned by a fisherman who has spent his life catching eels and salmon on the Severn. And speak to the founders of a brewery devoted to making great tasting beers with less than 0.5% alcohol.

In the first of two editions of The Food Programme, we celebrate our BBC Food and Farming Awards 'school of 2018'.

Presented by Sheila Dillon
Produced in Bristol by Clare Salisbury.
