Dish of the Day

BBC1 2012

A fourth series for BBC1. Nigel Slater's Dish of the Day started on Friday 12th October at 7.30 and ran for eight weeks. The series was repeated on Sundays at 5.30pm.

The cooking is typical of Nigel's relaxed style of everyday eating and features over 40 easy to prepare recipes. There is much emphasis on using what we have to hand, and many of the dishes are made from whatever happens to be in Nigel's fridge. Determined to use every little bit of his weekly shop, the message throughout the series is very much waste not, want not.
