Hugh’s landlord, Antony Hichens, is holding a Medieval Fair to raise funds for charity and Hugh has offered to donate one of his pigs. Antony and his wife Sczerina come down to the pig-pen to see which one should end up on the spit. Meanwhile, Royston and his team fish for mackerel in a traditional style that has been passed down for generations. Hugh takes a seat in their boat and helps them shoot the net in return for a share of the catch. The next morning he converts his share into Gravad-max – a variation on the preserved salmon dish of Gravad-lax.
