Jimmy Doherty, Kate Quilton, Matt Tebbutt, Dr Helen Lawal and the gang are back for
a special edition of the show that gets to the bottom of all things edible in preparation for the festive season.

They report from places as far-flung as north-west America, Zanzibar, Italy and Belgium to answer questions on non-meat treat Tofurkey, silver ball cake decorations (and whether there’s any real silver in them), sage and onion stuffing, and the ingredient that makes all the difference to mulled wine.

Plus, we learn why Christmas puddings are able to last so long and hear from a flavour scientist with a surprising (to say the least!) match for turkey – nuts, mushrooms… and chocolate!
