  4. BBC Food Programme: Southern Cooking & Sean Brock

    Provenance and pleasure, history and health - Radio 4’s weekly look at food. Making sense of food, from the kitchen and canteen, to the farm and factory. We place food in its historical and cultural context; call to account policy makers and industry decision makers; and celebrate the sheer pleasure of good food.

It’s a story that involves an intricate "food tattoo", one of America’s biggest private seed collections, a hog roast and "pick picking" and bowls of delicious peas, beans, rice, grits and fried chicken.
