Episode One: Malvern 27 February 2013
So off we go with the first episode showcasing family recipes from Wales and the Midlands, providing recipes including:

  • sausages in milk
  • classic Welsh cawl
  • Staffordshire oatcakes

In the program the judges will award a rosette if they consider a dish to to be worthy.

We start with Anne Harrison who tries the sausages in milk, blindfolded! No rosette.

Then Pheasant Papikash judged by Loyd Grossman and and yes he awards a rosette.

Then a series of cakes and meringues, not up to a rosette.

Tom then samples the teashop owner’s (Nadine and Andrew) Nan Sandwich pudding cake.

Next Sonia’s Tipsy Tart – Loyd gives a rosette and one for a curry next.

River stir fry is presented to Loyd – but he is not impressed.

No rosettes from Anne yet, so will Terry’s oatcakes do the trick? Yes!

Two contestants present a cawl, which one will win? Tom has to decide,both are so good, they each get a rosette.

Dragon pie is amazing with a chilli bite.

Then a real treat from the students of the Star Bistro – Pimms Summer fruit Jelly. These disabled students are amazing and emotional to watch what these kids can do.

The four judges each then reduce their choice to one from the rosettes awarded.

Tom (Cawl), Stacy (Pimms), Loyd (Paprikash) and Anne (Dragon pie).

Now the four contestants meet up at FGF Judges HQ to create their dishes again to be tasted by Tom, Stacy, Loyd and Anne with only one going through.

Who will win?

Winner:  Star Bistro Pimm’s Jelly
