Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain embarks on a culinary road trip around Britain, meeting food producers and pioneers and creating delicious new recipes using their produce.
Having moved south from Leeds, her adventure begins close to where she lives, in the Home Counties.
Nadiya starts with one of the first things she learnt to make as a child – cheese scones – which she serves with chive butter. She also visits an asparagus farm on the outskirts of Oxford to help with the harvest.
Nadiya receives a crash course in harvesting using specially designed asparagus buggies, and challenges farmer Imogen to a buggy race before preparing a thank-you meal, using the asparagus in a fresh Indian five-spice stir fry.
Her next stop is in Milton Keynes where she meets Turan, a former fireman who now runs a cooking school that teaches people how to smoke their own food. He shows Nadiya how to build her own cold smoker and smoke some haddock in it, before she then cooks her delicious smoked haddock Welsh rarebit.
Her final Home Counties recipe is an Eton Mess cheesecake that marries the famous dessert created at Eton School with a cheesecake base.
