Episode 6 - Bresse
 
On this leg of his French Adventure, James heads to Bresse, home to one of France’s most famous ingredients: the Bresse chicken.
 
After a peruse around the impressive Louhans market, James cooks using the region’s revered chicken in his sumptuous chicken blanquette. James goes to a chicken farm and museum to meet some of the chickens and learn just why they are so special. But they prove elusive, as if they know a chef can’t be trusted! James then gets to meet one of his human culinary heroes, Georges Blanc, owner of his eponymous three Michelin star restaurant where James gets a little starstruck!
