Ainsley's First Kitchen

TV chef Ainsley Harriott returns to his childhood home in south London and relives some of the food and family experiences that made Christmas special.

He revisits familiar market stalls still selling their global range of fruit and veg; the Greek matriarch and magnificent cook, now in her nineties, who treated Ainsley as an addition to her copious family; and the kitchen in his childhood home, kindly lent for the occasion by the present occupants, now completely transformed but full of memories.
