Nigel Slater's Simple Cooking

Series 1

Episode 1: Sweet and Sour

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Two Northern Ireland

In the first show of this cookery series, Nigel Slater explores one of the oldest and most successful culinary pairings in the kitchen - sweet and sour. From pork chops and gooseberry to rhubarb with caramel sauce, Nigel cooks five very different dishes that all work for the same reason: the delicious marriage of something sweet with something sour.

To help further understand this pairing, Nigel meets friends Van and Anh who cook Nigel their own take on sweet and sour - an oriental lemongrass and sea bass parcel served with a pineapple dipping sauce. Nigel returns the favour with a beautifully simple monkfish, lime and chicory wrap. Show less
