Derek Cooper's Necessarypleasures


Genome: [r4 Bd=19951219]

The first of five programmes celebrates one of Britain's forgotten summer fruits - the cherry. Fifty years ago, our markets were full of our white-hearted cherries and black cherries. Auctions for the prized British cherry were held in Kent pubs. For the last 20 years it has been hard to buy an English cherry, but now new orchards are being planted and it's time for a revival. Derek Cooper tastes his way through French and Kent orchards. Producer Min Raisman
