As time has gone on, we’ve become more and more detached from the origins of our food. Pig is pork, cow is beef, chicken comes in nuggets and fish in fingers. How important is it to know how exactly our food is created and once we do know, would that affect what we choose to consume?
What is required of chefs these days and should the standard vary according to where they work? Warning : there’s also a conversation about cheese sandwiches that goes on for far too long…

There’s a load of negative stigma attached to the consumption of MSG (Monosodium Glutomate) which is a naturally occurring flavour enhancer that’s usually used in take-away foods.

In this episode the guys delve into the subject and see if they can taste the difference between a normal dish and one where MSG has been added.
It can be really difficult to keep on top of what’s in season and even more difficult when you realise it might actually be more economical to eat veggies from further away! Baz whips up some *ahem* delicious smoothies to taste this week and the boys discuss some of their fave London spots.
Or maybe rotten tomatoes can be used as nail varnish remover… who knows? As well as separating the truth from the lies, Ben, Jamie and Mike chat about their favourite foods to cook at home vs. what’s the best cuisine to eat when you’re going out.
Would you ever consider buying alcohol… without the alcohol? Apparently, non alcoholic spirits, beers and cocktails are looking to be the next big thing! In this episode the guys try some out and try to understand why it’s becoming so popular.
