The Grumpy Guide To

Series 3 Cutdowns

Episode 2: Food - Part 1

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two ScotlandLatest broadcast: on BBC Two England

A grumpy perspective on aspects of modern life.

They tell us that British cuisine has improved and yet we still suffer from gastronomic grumpiness and food fury. Everyone seems obsessed with food, from the air miles it's travelled to the return of the 'Good Life' and organic crops. The telly is smothered with celebrity chefs while the local green grocer has been overshadowed by those huge supermarket hangers. We've gone from powdered egg to goji berries - whatever they are!

This Grumpy Guide programme lifts the lid on what makes our Grumpys' blood boil, covering topics including ridiculous food fashion, the price of organic crops and the rise of food allergies.

Starring: Ronni Ancona, Katy Brand, Ed Bynre, Jon Culshaw, Shobna Gulati, Russell Kane, Shappi Khorsandi, Alistair McGowan, John Moloney, Neil Morrissey, Sarah Parish, Mark Steel, Mark Radcliffe and John Thomson. Show less
