My Life on a Plate

Episode 14: Michael Buerk

Duration: 44 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Two Wales HD

Although Michael Buerk was born in Solihull, it's Hereford where he feels his life really began as far as food is concerned.

From the unpromising 1950s fare of tinned spaghetti, overcooked cabbage and grey peas cooked by his mother and grandmother, to the delicious wholesome food he found on his girlfriend's family table, Michael has never looked back.

Brian finds plenty of inspiration in Michael's stories of his youth, as well as in the bountiful Herefordshire fields, to produce two tantalising dishes which put his guest's life on a plate. Show less
