The Wild Gourmets: Series 1 and 2 DVD
They say there is no such thing as a free lunch, but former UK Masterchef winner Tommi Miers and adventurer Guy Grieve disagree. They believe that the British countryside isn't just picturesque, it's a rich larder just waiting to be unlocked, and in a bid to prove that Britain's wild food is better than any supermarket or Michelin starred restaurant, Tommi and Guy travel across the UK determined to show that foraging isn't just about eating grubs and stinging nettles. Tommi and Guy hunt, shoot and forage for some of the freshest and wildest seasonal produce the UK has to offer, from grouse in Yorkshire, to wild mushrooms in Wales, to deer in the remote Scottish Highlands, the Wild Gourmets provides a fascinating insight into the hidden gastronomic treasures of the UK's rivers, valleys, mountains and hedgerows and will inspire viewers to create mouth-watering recipes from a surprising selection of ingredients. In Series 2 Tommi combines classic Spanish dishes, which she prepares at home in an English kitchen, with her adventures on the road across the Iberian countryside, she reveals the best kept secrets from the kitchens of regional Spain. Guy is on hand abroad when the wild boar needs butchering, the octopus needs gutting or the rabbits need catching. Together, the pair of them go off the beaten track in their hunt for the authentic flavours of Spain - showing there is so much more to this rich and beautiful country than sombreros, paella and sangria.
