Nigel Slater and Adam Henson join forces to sow, grow, rear and cook Britain's favourite foods, from a working farm in the Cotswolds. Revealing the top 50 fresh foods on the UK's supermarket shopping lists, Nigel and Adam show how we can get the most flavour, value and variety from them all.
The duo look at how our busy lifestyles have meant Britain has lost touch with where our food comes from and the best ways to cook it. With the rise of convenience foods meaning a decline in traditional cooking, can Nigel bring the art of cooking back to Britain? Nigel cooks up our favourite ready meal, lasagne, and tries to match the price of the off-the-shelf version of this popular dish. Adam, meanwhile, sets his own challenge to grow durum wheat, used to make pasta, on the Cotswolds farm.
This episode also explores the UK's favourite red meat - beef - and the journey it takes from farm to fork, before Nigel inspires us to get around the table again by cooking a supersized Sunday roast for his guests on the farm.
