Helen Hokin's Spring Picks

Helen Hokin's Spring Picks
Food Trippers,
 
Spring brings more episodes of my Food Tripper TV series exploring food history and culture all over the world.
This time I'm in the Black Forest, Estonia and Grenada and you can watch all three 60-minute shows on Travel Channel on Sky 251.
 
IN THE BLACK FOREST
I get a guided gastro-forage like no other, pick my way through cherry orchards and sample artisan Black Forest  ham and cheese.
It might be the height of summer when I swing by the nation's favourite chocolatier but he's already flooded with Christmas orders so I step in to lend a hand. And a glittering line-up of German chefs await to greet me for a spot of  Michelin kitchen action.
Duration 60-minutes
 
IN ESTONIA
In the capital of Tallin I travel back in time to find out what was on the menu in Medieval times and later, how the Soviet occupation affected the national diet.
On the trail of Nordic Island Cuisine I sail across the Baltic to the remote island of Muhu before travelling further south east on the mainland to get hands on baking and pickling with the Setu people, Europe's longest settled community.
Duration 60 minutes
 
IN GRENADA
In the sun-drenched Caribbean I head to the spice island of Grenada in search of nutmeg, cocoa and a man aiming to make the world's most ethical chocolate bar. I find out how to cook with callaloo before disappearing into the rainforest, with the island's self-proclaimed Indiana Jones, for a spot of a wild food hunting.
Duration 60 minutes
 
Don't miss it.

Helen

Spring has made an appearance, at last and we have al fresco ideas from picnics in the park to sky-high snacking in London and all over the world.

Helen Hokin: I’m considering relocating to Barbados. I could swap my reindeer onesie for a designer one-piece and save on heating bills without the hassle of switching suppliers every other month.

Travelling to a different part of the world usually means sampling the local cuisine, but if you’re headed somewhere as uninhabited and challenging as the Antarctic, then you only get to eat what you bring with you.
