Series overview

Join chef Ainsley Harriott in a celebration of delicious food that really boosts your mood.

Episode 1: Seaside Delights

In this first episode, Ainsley is inspired by the tastes and delights of the seaside – he starts with a taste of Italy making his Crab and Lemon Linguine with Pangrattato. He heads off on a seaside adventure with expert forager Alysia Vasey to find out what edible treats are growing on our shorelines, then uses some seaside herbs they forage in his Zesty Seafood Kebabs with Shaved Courgette and Fennel Salad in his shoreside kitchen.

Meanwhile, Ainsley’s friend and chef Joseph Denison Casey heads to the Jurassic Coast to meet Jethro at the Dorset Sea Salt Company to find out how he captures the magic of the sea in his salt – back in his kitchen, Ainsley gives a dish from his childhood a salty update with his Chocolate Sponge Traybake with Salted Caramel Sauce.

Ainsley finishes the show with a seaside classic, Beer-Battered Fish served with Triple Cooked Chips and Mushy Minty Peas.
