Forfar has its Bridie and Cullen its Skink but how do you capture Peterhead on a plate? Food Innovator Simon Preston and award winning chef David Littlewood gather a colourful cast of local characters on board a fishing trawler to share stories and songs of the sea in a bid to help them create a brand new signature dish for the town. Local trawlerman Jimmy Buchan tells of a life spent fishing off Peterhead; folk singer and storyteller, Pauline Cordiner, conjures up some of the darker side of life for a fishing community while local photographer Scott Donald sees the town through an alternative lens. The challenge for the chef is how to re-tell all their stories and ideas through one delicious dish!
