Season 2, Episode 1,  Oct 18, 2020, 05:33 PM

Welcome to Series 2 of The Doorstep Kitchen! After a few months break, we are back with 10 more episodes where we continue to discover our great British produce. From cheese to cider, seafood to truffles, there is much to learn in this series about what is growing and being cooked right here on our doorsteps. We also have a new forager so welcome Fergus Drennan aka Fergus the forager, and at the beginning of each episode I will be giving you a little update on new food and drink products, restaurants and events.
This episode features cheese expert Sam Wilkin. A fellow podcast host, Sam is a hub of knowledge and even a cheese judge. Topics include how coronavirus has affected the industry, which cheesemakers to visit, what is raw cheese and where can it be found, and Sam gives us the names of some of Britain’s best cheeses – those mentioned are listed below. We also dive into the world of cheese pairings and Sam offers his thoughts on vegan cheese.
Fergus the Forager talks about beefsteak mushrooms, a great one for beginners.
