London is packed with chain stores and the mass-produced but for Rachel it's the individual quirky and homespun that catches her attention. People who do it all themselves, hand-crafting their goods with care, and the DIY craze she finds is alive and well amongst London's young food producers. She visits Ole, who has turned the basement of his north London home into a Norwegian style smokehouse for salmon. And she meets Lillie, a shopkeeper whose shelves are lined with bespoke preserves; all produced by hand her on her hob at home. Back in her own kitchen, Rachel gives us a cheat's guide to smoked fish; finds delicious success in salting her own beef and takes some home-baking to new heights.
