Is growing and cooking fresh food from the garden high on your wish list? Do you want to whip up dishes using homegrown ingredients but don’t know which fruits, vegetables and herbs to try first? Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing tells us why he’s swapped his chef’s whites for life in the kitchen garden.

We chat to the acclaimed chef and restaurateur about his new adventure, why he’s spending more time than ever expanding his smallholding in the East Sussex countryside, and how his new-found love of growing is influencing his menus from season to season. In his new TV show, Marcus Wareing’s Tales from a Kitchen Garden, he explores food from the ground up, and here, he’s the first to admit, getting to grips with growing food has been one heck of a learning curve.

Plus, he shares the veg patch and greenhouse staples he swears by for whipping up fresh and enticing plates of food this summer.

Listen now, as Marcus Wareing and Lucy Felton, content coordinator at BBC Gardeners’ World magazine, discuss all things kitchen garden growing:
