Spice & BBC Radio 4 Food Programme!

It was our pleasure recently to welcome Ann-Marie Bullock of Radio 4 to our Wirral premises. Ann-Marie had a full tour of Seasoned Pioneers, hearing about how it all began and watching a spice blend being made from scratch!
Here’s a summary of the show, broadcast on Sunday 17th May and Monday 18th May 2015.
Cyrus Todiwala travels to Easton in Bristol for the Spice Festival to meet those for whom spice is part of their lives. For him spices have been used for health as well as to bring flavour to his dishes while cooking in India and opening restaurants in the UK. He meets the man whose family fled Uganda while under the rule of Idi Amin, losing everything but their love and knowledge of spices led his father to source and share ingredients, eventually serving food and is now an ‘Aladdin’s cave’ of exotic spices and ingredients for individuals and restaurants across the South West. He meets the chai wallahs who now sell on street corners of Bristol as well as Bombay and hears about the backpacker whose craving for the Indian snacks he tasted led him to set up his own business with over 300 products and blends.
Get some fire in your belly and hear how spice plays a role in community, culture and culinary delights.

Prior to Ann-Marie Bullock’s visit we were very please to host Shelia Dillon and her Radio 4 Food Program.
Earlier this year, Shelia Dillon from Radio 4’s The Food Programme visited the Seasoned Pioneers team as part of her fact finding mission to Merseyside.
The Food Programme visited Liverpool, which celebrates its 800th anniversary and is European Capital of Culture in 2008, to find out to what extent food culture is part of the ‘renaissance’ that’s been taking place in the city in the last few years.
