MOVEABLE FEAST WITH FINE COOKING: Beachside in Brighton

 

We are in Brighton, a beautiful English seaside resort town, in this episode of Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking. Host Alex Thomopoulos is here to cook a feast with acclaimed chefs Michael Bremner and Sam Lambert. To gather the freshest fish, the chefs head to Brighton & Newhaven Fish Sales, where fisherman deliver the daily catch straight from the sea, then to inland to Namayasai, a gem of a farm that grows an exquisite array of Japanese vegetables. And finally, they travel to Saddlescombe Farm & Newtimber Hill, where sheep graze in the scenic British countryside. Back at Chef Michael’s waterfront restaurant, Murmur, the trio cooks a delectable feast with the daily catch and an Herby White Wine Butter Sauce, Fire-Roasted Lamb, and Shrimp Shu Mai.

MOVEABLE FEAST WITH FINE COOKING
Cadanet, France

 

Travel to the interior of Provence when Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking visits Cadenet, France. Host Pete Evans takes a trip to see how the covetable fleur de sel salt is harvested from the pink waters of Aigues Mortes, a region of salt ponds bigger than Paris. Then, Pete meets up with the mother-daughter chef team of Reine and Nadia Sammut to source fresh artichokes from their local field and prepare them at their stellar countryside restaurant. Nadia has made it a point in her family’s restaurant to incorporate gluten-free items after she discovered she had Celiac disease; her mother Reine, who has been the owner of the restaurant for decades, melds her classic techniques with allergy-conscious ingredients. French heritage is found in both the setting and the feast: on the menu are artichokes Provençal, gluten-free focaccia, and a luscious lamb stew.
