S01E01 Best of British 14/05/2008 Recipes: Apple and blueberry pie, Custard with thyme, Caramel banana shortbread, Sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce, Carrot cake with mascarpone and candied carrots, Lemon curd syllabub. The location provided the theme and in the first episode James returned to where he grew up and first started cooking, Castle Howard in Yorkshire. So the first week’s theme was Best of British.

James returned to his old catering college in Yorkshire and themed his puddings around the classic desserts he learned to make there.

James visited Morfudd Richards who sells organic ice creams from her van.

Then he took a trip to Lucy's on a Plate in the Lake District, where the only thing on the menu was sweets, sweets and more sweets.
S01E06 Back to basics 18/06/2008 Recipes: Baked chocolate and orange cheesecake, Quick basil and summer fruit pudding, Pancakes, Baked parkin with roasted rhubarb, Apricot and almond biscotti with limoncello. In the last episode of the series, James got back to basics, demonstrating the simple skills needed for good old-fashioned home-baking. He put a traditional cook up against a 'scientific' one to find out which method made the best cake, before testing them out on the experienced palate of Harrods’s food buyer. The show climaxed with dinner at James’s with his assistant chef Will and some friends.
