Jay Rayner presents the first programme of a new BBC Radio 4 series: a food panel show, recorded in front of a live audience, aimed at anyone who cooks at home, not just the experts.

Each week the programme travels round the country to visit interesting food locations, and meet local food-loving people.

This week The Kitchen Cabinet is in Sibton, near Saxmundham in Suffolk, and the panel features: Angela Malik, the Scottish-Indian chef, whose passion for demystifying food has led to her setting up her own cookery school, deli and street-market stalls; Rachel McCormack, a Glaswegian who spent her formative years in Spain, and who is now successfully spreading the word on all things Spanish, not least by teaching authentic Catalan cookery; Stefan Gates, food adventurer and self-styled 'gastronaut'; and the food historian, Dr Annie Gray.

Suffolk is known for its game, smoke houses and condiments, all of which are very seasonal topics for this time of year, and the panel will be answering questions about horseradish, jugged hare, and the fashion for home smoking. But they will also be finding out whether flatulence caused many vegetables, popular in Victorian times, to fall out of favour, and revealing Queen Victoria's favoured remedy for indigestion.

The show is witty, fast-moving, and irreverent, but packed full of information that may well change the way you think about cooking.

Inspired by the fact that it's the 14th February, the team answer questions about how to create the perfect Valentine's meal, and whether any supposed aphrodisiacs really work; they also discuss the popular foods that have been introduced to the UK by immigrants who have settled in London's East End over the years; and how to encourage young children to eat liver!
