    Jay Rayner hosts the culinary panel show packed full of tasty titbits. Experts Jordan Bourke, Melek Erdal, Rob Owen Brown and Dr Annie Gray are ready to tackle your kitchen conundrums.

    This week, the panel lists are delighted (and disgusted) by stuffing stuff in stuff, that is, stuffed vegetables. They also share their favourite brassica recipes, and tell us exactly what we can do with a surplus of yoghurt.

    Jay Rayner hosts the culinary panel show packed full of tasty titbits. Tim Hayward, Anna Jones, Nisha Katona and Dr Annie Gray share some of their favourite recipes and help answer the questions.

    This week, the team are bursting with ideas on how to avoid that soggy bottom on a Beef Wellington, what to do with leftover coconut milk, and how best to use up one listener's large supply of Victorian plums.

    Resident food historian Dr Annie Gray reveals the origins behind the very first waffle, and the team are joined by Chef Lara Lee, who shares some of her favourite recipes from a journey she took tracing the smells and flavours of her family's Indonesian roots.

    Jay Rayner hosts the culinary panel show packed full of tasty titbits. Joining him this week are Tim Anderson, Sue Lawrence, Shelina Permalloo and Professor Barry Smith to help answer questions from hungry listeners.

    This week in a scientific special, the panel are quizzed on their favourite kitchen gadgets, as well as going through nearly every possible configuration of tofu imaginable.

    They are joined by food science expert and author Harold McGee, who uncovers the chemistry of cooking. Sensory expert Professor Barry Smith leads us in a tantalising tastebud experiment - if you’d like to join in at home, you’ll need some Szechuan peppercorns handy (and not be averse to eating them raw…)

    What nifty kitchen appliance was Jordan Bourke's flatmate hiding in her room?

Very informative and funny

Series started out a bit dull, but quickly picked up when the panel got comfortable with the format. Love the sharp wit and humor that shoots from one person to the next.

Panel shows can be dull, but this one isn't. Rayner does well at keeping things moving and interesting. I hope there are more episodes in the works!!
