Category: Food/Cooking/Nutrition

Nadiya’s food tour of Britain begins in the home counties. The first recipe is one of the first things Nadiya learnt to make as a child living at home – cheese scones. Here she serves it with chive butter. Stop one on her tour of the home counties is a visit to an asparagus farm on the outskirts of Oxford. Joining young farmer Imogen Stanley, Nadiya learns about how the sandy soil here is perfect for asparagus farming and also gets a crash course in harvesting, using specially designed asparagus buggies. Nadiya can’t resist a challenge and, in the end, even offers Imogen a buggy race. Nadiya uses the asparagus in a fresh Indian five-spice stir fry, a very different take on the traditional Chinese one, and a welcome thank you meal for Imogen, her parents and the professional asparagus pickers. Nadiya’s final stop is Milton Keynes, where she meets Turan T Turan, a former fireman who now runs a cooking school dedicated to teaching people how to smoke their own food.
