Nadiya’s British Food Adventure
food / 8.30pm / BBC2
london is tonight’s foodie destination as Nadiya does a brilliant job of squeezing so much into just half an hour (shouldn’t this be an hour long?). She begins at an urban farm, but this is unlike any farm you’ll have ever seen. More science lab in an East End warehouse, it’s extraordinary what is grown there as a solution to food production in our ever-growing cities. After cooking a beautiful-looking fish and watercress curry, Nadiya meets a chef who uses scent as a flavour, which inspires her to make a polenta cake flavoured with orange blossom and herbs. Her final flavour flourish is a stunning pie combining traditional old London with contemporary new flavours.
