In the six editions of the first series, Nigel Slater encourages viewers to grow their own fruit and vegetables, and prepares chicken cakes with herb mayonnaise, free-form trifle with raspberries and custard, bean soup, goat's cheese on garlic toast and tidy Friday pan fry. Nigel also prepares easy recipes with classic ingredients, including sausages and mustard; pork chops with apples and cider; and carrot and coriander fritters. He also rustles up recipes for the winter months, including Moroccan chicken casserole, vegetable curry, lamb hotpot and stuffed pumpkins.
All six episodes from the second series of the BBC cookery show in which Nigel Slater demonstrates straightforward, down-to-earth cooking. Each episode covers a week in the life of Nigel's cooking, in which he prepares meals aimed at those who'd rather spend their time eating than cooking. The emphasis is on simple and fresh recipes based on seasonal produce harvested from the kitchen garden.
