Ainsley's Good Mood Food

Join Ainsley Harriot as he whips up dishes packed with herbs, spices, and flavour that just makes you want to smile. In this episode all about seasonings, he begins with one of his favourite spices to make a lamb kofta with sumac onions served next to flatbreads and chilli-mint yoghurt.

Ainsley goes on a trip through the woods with the expert forager Alysia Vasey, and studies some amazing herbs that can be found right under his boots. Without wasting any time, Ainsley puts one of their finds to good use in a jazzed up pineapple upside-down cake – paired with rum and lime cream. 

Joseph learns how James from The Real Cure uses herbs and spices to make award-winning charcuterie. On the beach, Ainsley cooks up a dish sure to spice up any BBQ, peri peri chicken served with chilli-lime corn.

Ainsley’s final recipe, Keralan fish and king prawn curry, is a perfect blend of herbs and spices.
