A brand new landmark series for BBC2 championing British produce which are under threat and in serious need of putting back on the food map.
Some of our best Great British produce is under threat and this exciting new series is a call to action as ten of the BBC’s best-loved chefs and cooks help to bring our traditional produce back from the brink. We’ve got the rarest, tastiest and most culturally important ingredients right here under our noses, but they are in danger of being lost forever if we don’t rally behind them.
Each episode of the Great British Food Revival takes one passionate presenter on a gastronomic journey to discover, cook with and reinvigorate our great heritage foods. Each show is a campaign by the host to raise awareness, get people cooking with, talking about and enjoying these great British ingredients.
James Martin shows his support for heritage apples, while Michel Roux Jr. puts a case for the revival of real bread. The Hairy Bikers get behind the revival of the cauliflower and Clarissa Dickson Wright puts forward her argument for rare breed pork. Others involved in the campaign include Gregg Wallace, Angela Hartnett, Ainsley Harriott, Matt Tebbutt, Glynn Purnell and Gary Rhodes.
