    Episode 45: Ginger

    Episode 45: Ginger

    For this year's festive episode, we've chosen ginger. You make it into houses and people before Christmas, then you use it to detox after Christmas. It's also chewy AF, hard to make and dates back to Ancient Greece.

    Episode 43: Insects

    Episode 42: Processed Cheese

    Episode 42: Processed Cheese

    Ah, delicious processed cheese. Full of preservatives, shelf-stable, worryingly orange...In this episode we cook with it, print it, look into its terrifying contents and speak to the creator of Homemade McDonalds - a Facebook group dedicated to...um...homemade McDonalds.

    Episode 41: Tea

    Episode 41: Tea

    It is ancient and therapeutic and caffeinated and delicious with dumplings. But does it even make beer better? Yes it does. It's tea!

    Episode 40: Melon

    Episode 40: Melon

    A waste of space or a flavour sensation? It depends if it's wrapped in prosciutto, apparently. Yes we're back for 2018 and we're talking about melons. How we eat them, where they came from and how to blow them up.
