With its unhurried style and balanced range of presenters, Our Food is basically Coast with meadows and ingredients

Food programmes seem to increasingly find themselves in the awkward position of not really being about food any more. If they're not clattering reality shows, more interested in fast editing and Coldplay than any meaningful form of culinary information, then they're barely concealed excuses for personalities to show off their nice kitchens and well-stocked fridges and infinite wardrobe of lovely clothes.

I was ready to write off Our Food as a classic example of the latter. After all, it's presented by Giles Coren, a man whose televised output has largely consisted of dressing up as Henry VIII and trading smug yucks with Sue Perkins until he can go home and shriek at a subeditor. But two episodes in and it turns out that Our Food is possibly the most food-centric television show that we've had in years. »
