ITV’s Taste Tour of Great Britain

October 6th, 2011

Last week we hooked up with the production team and some contestants for an edition of a new foodie programme, “The Taste Tour of Great Britain”.  It won’t be broadcast until next spring so I can’t say too much!

The filming took place near Windermere at The Wild Boar Inn and in a nearby field.  Smoky Jo showed Ollie – Oliver Gerrish – the basics of food smoking and he then had to treat fellow contestants to a smoked feast.  As well as not being able to say too much I can’t show all the pictures I took…

My next post will be about the two smokers we saw at L’Enclume – one of Cumbria’s Michelin starred restaurants, in Cartmel.
