In the BBC2 programme, "What to Eat Now", Valentine Warner takes us on a mouth-watering, content-rich and beautifully filmed journey through the best of autumnal food. He charts the growth of his favourite foods from their first stirrings as seeds through to fully grown foods. Natural history filming techniques will capture the life-cycle of everything from rabbit to mackerel to pumpkin. The programme then follows Valentine as he brings each ingredient back from the river, sea, woodland and field, shore or highland and launches it into ovens, pans and barbecues. He cooks 3-4 dishes in each episode, both indoors and out.show more
