Ever wondered what the Nation’s Top Ten evening meals are? Is our favourite all time dish a curry, a steak, a roast – or a pizza, pie or stew?
The Hairy Bikers - joined by chef Lorraine Pascale - will reveal all in a one hour special, coming soon to BBC2.
By looking closer at our favourite dishes we can show the trends rippling through Britain and how our tastes are changing, which might reveal some surprises!
Across the hour, the chefs will scour the four corners of the UK as they reveal Britain’s top 10 favourite dishes and discover why people love certain recipes so much. Each chef will then offer their own different views on our loved recipes and set out to create their own fresh versions of the nation’s favourite dishes.
They'll show us the best ways to cook our favourite meals by breathing new life into our weekly menu and empowering us to make our dinners as simple, cheap and tasty as possible.
From spice shops in Scotland, apple orchards in Kent, Thai kitchens, fish and chippies and farms, the show is packed full of top tips and interesting culinary observations – setting out the state of the nation through the food we love to eat.
The programme is part of BBC2's Food Season, putting food on the menu for a special season of programmes which look at what the nation eats in more detail than ever before.
Presented by a range of BBC Two talent, including Lorraine, Raymond Blanc, Kate Humble, Giles Coren, Alice Roberts, Tom Kerridge and the Hairy Bikers, the programmes will look back over 50 years of food history as well as look ahead to what we could all be eating in the future.
Tuesday 17th March at 7pm on BBC2.
