Cooking In The Danger Zone

FOOD TELEVISION – Thursdays from 9 December, 9pm

Food writer Stefan Gates returns in a new series which uses food as a way into controversial issues that affect people’s lives in some of the most dangerous places in the world. In Burma, where civil war still rages, Karen villagers and rebels are hanging onto life by a thread. The post-apocalyptic area around Chernobyl now finds people living illegally on toxic land. When an old woman prepares a meal from produce grown in her garden Stefan is faced with a tricky dilemma. Deep inside the Arctic Circle Stefan spends time with Inuit, hunting seal and whale. He even gets to try the local delicacy – 18 month old rotten walrus!
