Nigel Slater sets out to put simplicity back into cooking and inspires viewers with his passion for gardening and for the kitchen. Each episode covers a week in the life of Nigel's cooking, in which he prepares memorable and delicious meals aimed at those who'd rather spend more time eating than cooking. Picked, plucked and pulled from the kitchen garden, the emphasis is on simple and fresh recipes.
From easy snacks to sumptuous desserts, Nigel creates meals for different moods and days, whether it's grilled sardines on a blisteringly hot August evening or a bowl of gently aromatic stew on a rainy day in late spring. Along the way, he meets people who devote their lives to producing fresh food, all taken back to cook in Nigel's kitchen.
