From afternoon tea to goat curry, the next episode of Best of Britain by the Sea will showcase Norwich’s thriving food scene.
The series follows celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott and acclaimed food critic Grace Dent as they sample dishes on and around the coast.
The third episode focuses on Norfolk and airs Monday, May 30 on the More4 channel at 9 p.m.
The couple begin their Norfolk adventure in Norwich at popular tea venue The Assembly House and Ainsley meets pastry chef Mark Mitson to learn his secrets.
Ainsley is then joined by Grace in the chic dining room to sample a selection of sandwiches and cakes.
Richard Hughes, Chief Executive of The Assembly House, said: “The whole crew had so much fun when they toured with us and Grace and Ainsley were absolutely lovely guests whose enthusiasm for what we do was truly heartwarming.
“They were both really stuck, whether it was learning how we serve up to 350 afternoon teas a day or how we clean the dozens of chandeliers in the building, and we were sorry to see them go.”
Afterwards, they visit Norwich Market and enjoy goat curry in Coral Bay made by Conroy, using her grandmother’s recipe, and empanadas made by Ana at Cocina Mia.
Finally, they visit the newly renovated gourmet restaurant Benedicts and meet head chef Richard Bainbridge before enjoying delicacies including pork buns with elderflower barbecue sauce and potato mousse.
During the episode, the pair also take a boat on the Norfolk Broads in Brundall and enjoy chips in Great Yarmouth.
