Season 01, Episode 08 – “Chris Bavin Paul”
Ainsworth and Catherine Fulvio are joined by presenter and former grocer Chris Bavin as they share their culinary secrets, perfect for creating delicious festive flavours throughout Christmas. In this episode it’s all about ‘Christmas Lites’. Dishes with all the taste and indulgence of Christmas, but on the lighter side. Together they rustle up mouth-watering dishes like succulent stuffed roast turkey- where one slice is all you need, or a fragrant warm Cornish mussel broth. Christmas is all about pushing the boat out, whether that’s the food, the decorations, entertaining or giving gifts and the team meet people who, in their own way, go the extra mile to make Christmas special. Paul and Catherine also select their favourite 12 tastes of Christmas and to showcase bacon, for them an absolute must-have Christmas ingredient, they create Christmas French toast with smoked bacon, as well as a fantastic starter of Parma ham cups filled with goats’ cheese. As the kitchen fills with the aromas and flavours of the season, the fun and festivities begin.
