Marcus Wareing’s Tales From A Kitchen Garden | Preview (BBC Two)
Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing is back as he steps up ambitious plans for his kitchen garden while offering top tips for growing and cooking your own produce.
The kitchen garden and orchard are flourishing, as are the chickens, pigs, longhorn cows and Lonk sheep that Marcus introduced to his East Sussex small holding last year.
But despite the successes Marcus wants to dig deeper into the possibilities his land can offer. He hopes to bring an even greater variety of livestock and produce to the farm from geese to piglets as well as many more crops, trees and even a smoker.
During the 20-part series, Marcus visits local producers, farmers and growers as he roots himself more strongly in the community around him while exploring the incredible produce on his doorstep from tomatoes and pumpkins to Kent grown watermelons.
Good food is at the heart of everything he does. Having spent years in professional kitchens, developing recipes, it always comes down to flavour and he wants to continue breaking down the barriers between farming and kitchen.
Inspired by ingredients from his farm and beyond, Marcus will cook incredible dishes that showcase the very best of British produce, from veggie BBQs that celebrate the bounty of his kitchen garden to show stopping beef ribs for a celebratory feast. He will also be preserving his excess produce in jams, pickles, cordials and even delicious butters.
Marcus Wareing’s Tales from a Kitchen Garden has been produced for BBC Two by Plimsol Productions. The first episode airs on Monday 28 August at 6.30pm and the series will be stripped five days a week.
