Series overview:
 
Weekdays on ITV.
 
Father and son cooking duo Dick and James Strawbridge take to the high seas again in a new, second series of The Hungry Sailors. 
 
Following on from the success of their first series last year, Dick and James set off on-board the 45-foot pilot cutter The Morwenna for a culinary voyage around the coastlines of South West England, taking in the Channel Islands and the Isles of Scilly along the way. 
 
Throughout their journey they will be tasting the very best in local food and meeting the producers who are putting the Westcountry on the map.
 
They’ll be cooking in their galley kitchen and on-shore too – whether it’s on the beach or on the quayside, Dick and James will be demonstrating a host of new recipes inspired by their travels and the food they’ve discovered.
 
However, they have to work for their supper, so amongst other things, they dig for clams, dive for mussels, shear sheep, herd ducks and help pilot an enormous tanker out to sea. 
 
And as ever they get out their tools and cobble together classic Strawbridge contraptions such as their own crab cracker, a homemade rotisserie, a sushi roller and ice-cream maker. 
 
Dick and James love to get stuck in and get their hands dirty, and these two are nothing if not competitive, whether it’s ploughing with shire horses, shucking oysters or making dinner for their guests back on the boat.

Monday 1 July:
 
Father and son Dick and James Strawbridge set out on a voyage of discovery around Britain’s southwest coastline in search of great food and people to share it with. On the first leg of their journey they’re in the Cornish village Mevagissey – fishing for scary conger eels, rolling their own sushi and finally taking a trip to the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Then everybody is back on the boat for the first of Dick and James’ competitive dinners.
 
Tuesday 2 July:
 
Hungry Sailors Dick and James Strawbridge sail into Fowey, but only just - because the British summer is throwing some nasty weather at this intrepid pair. Soon they’re out of sou-westers and in t-shirts pruning bananas in tropical conditions at the Eden Project.  Next it’s fishing in the dark for sea trout and having a go at potting clotted cream before dinner on the boat for the new friends they’ve met along the way.
