Michel Roux Jr wants us to turn our back on the evils of ready meals and make our own fast food. Ken Hom is in the studio to knock up a quick stir-fry with steamed rice. But don’t be scared: “Everybody in this country is so nervous about cooking rice,” says Hom, somewhat sweepingly, but he shows us a “foolproof” method.
Later, writer and professional contrarian Julie Burchill sends a little ode of love to supermarkets (which Roux hates and thinks are killing our high streets). She has no time for small independent shops with their personal service – she wants the convenience, bulk and variety only a supermarket can offer: “Make mine mega every time,” she chortles to camera.
Ken Hom joins host Michel Roux Jr for a discussion on dishes that can be prepared quickly, and shows how to create a mouth-watering citrus-flavoured chicken dish in minutes. Drinks expert Kate Goodman picks three Semillon wines from Australia to complement Ken's stir fry and Michel makes a fruity pancake dessert.
