The chef reveals the Cornwall that he knows and loves, championing the food, history, music, art and culture of the county,
Rick is on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula. He begins his journey at a spot thought to have been visited by Jesus, which inspired the hymn Jerusalem. At the picturesque town of St Mawes, he embarks on a tour of the bay with Alex and Olga Polizzi, who own one of Cornwall's most luxurious hotels.
At one of the county's oldest butchers, Rick looks into the ancient practice and benefits of ageing meat, before showing us how to properly cook a steak and make the perfect Bearnaise sauce. And in the attractive harbourside village of Mousehole, Rick meets a potter who finds inspiration in the Cornish landscape.
Rick is at Tintagel, Cornwall's most mythical location, where he discovers that it was an important trading port with Europe and the birthplace of perhaps Britain's greatest legend, the tale of King Arthur.
At Camborne, once the richest mining area in the world, Rick explores how the Methodist religious movement was so important to Cornwall, and how Methodists would cook a rather unusual bun during special feast days. And on the Roseland Peninsula, Rick meets a family who are continuing the surprisingly ancient tradition of growing the exotic spice saffron.
West Penwith is as far west as it is possible to go in mainland England. Here Rick explores its rich and diverse history, from Lamorna Cove, made famous through song and art, to the UNESCO protected tin and copper mining area of Botallack, where Rick talks with a mining explorer.
With the Atlantic sea mist enveloping the landscape, Rick follows an ancient track in search of Cornwall's oldest building. And from the safety of his kitchen, Rick tells us how, as a young lad on the Lizard Peninsula, he fell in love for the first time and tasted his first exotic French fish stew, known as a bouillabaisse.
As Rick's Cornish odyssey comes to an end, he takes a city break in Truro, where he discovers an unusual ghost story and tours the magnificent cathedral.
Deep in the Cornish countryside is a family passionate about offal, who prepare Rick a delicious meal of pickled ox tongue and beef heart tacos. In Cornwall's most northerly parish, Rick tells the story of an eccentric vicar, Robert Stephen Hawker, who would retrieve and bury the bodies from nearby shipwrecks in his church, and who is credited with writing what has become Cornwall's unofficial national anthem.
