RADIO SCOTLAND'S "MEN LIKE US" SEASON

BBQs:

Traditionally the man's domain in the garden but are women allowed to get in on the act these days? And do all BBQs need to be like the display in a butcher's shop with nothing much for vegetarians apart from a sad-looking veggie burger?! The Kitchen Café inspires you to broaden your horizons with interesting vegetarian bbq food.

Top chef Michael Smith, recently seen on tv's "Great British Menu", cooks a bbq live.

Men In The Kitchen:

Who does the cooking in your house? With increasing numbers of male celebrity chefs on tv The Kitchen Café discovers whether that has influenced men to have a go in their own kitchen.

Are attitudes changing, how comfortable are men with cooking and do they approach food preparation differently? Is it all ultra hot curries and macho roast beef or have men learned some of the finesse of the celebrity chefs?!

Food On The Frontline:

Recently returned from Afghanistan, reporter Cameron Buttle talks about food on the frontline - how seriously do they take their food, what's it like being a chef out there and how hard is it to survive on a ration pack?

Kitchen Café Takeaway:

Michelin-starred chef Tom Kitchin makes a Tomato Consomme and a Tomato Confit, both of which would be ideal for your bbq at home.

Also available as a free audio download.

Men in the kitchen, BBQ food, male celebrity chefs, and food on the frontline.

Clare English discovers why picking the right potato for mashing, roasting, boiling or salad should be afforded as much thought at choosing the wine you drink.

Do you know your Maris Pipers from your Golden Wonders or Arran Victories? Scottish potatoes can be found almost all over the world and producers have just had a record year of seed potato export yet many of us don't think much about the different varieties when we're cooking.

Chef and food writer Christopher Trotter and potato specialist Alan Romans are on a mission to broaden our horizons and get us excited about potatoes! With great ideas to make you think differently about where your potatoes come from and what individual varieties are best for different dishes, mince and tatties will never be the same again!

In a bumper week of takeaway recipes chef Steven Devlin gives "Kitchen Cafe" producer and fish novice Gillian Russell a masterclass in cooking fish.

Tuna and Mango Salad with Soy and Ginger Dressing, Lemon Sole Milanaise and Baked Cod with Peppers and Chorizo.

The recipes and audio are available to download and keep.

As Shrove Tuesday approaches The Kitchen Café team look at making the best crepes, far more than just sugar and lemon juice. But what is the right consistency for the batter? And does it matter if you don't prove your pan before making them and why does the first one always turn out a disaster? All this plus some great ideas for savoury crepes as both sweets and mains.

In our monthly delve in to The Kitchen Café Spice Cupboard spice expert Ghillie Basan looks at black pepper.

Salt and pepper are two of the most commonly used seasonings. Adding the right amount at the right time in the cooking process can be a matter of taste but can completly change a dish. Chefs by their own admittance probably use too much and if you use seasoning while cooking should you add more at the table? Fiona Burrell from the Edinburgh New Town Cookery School and chef Neil Forbes tell us what alternatives to use to salt and how to salvage something if you've accidently added too much.

And in The Kitchen Café Takeaway chef John Quigley makes Nasi Goreng.

Food writer Claudia Roden talks to Pennie Latin about the variety and versatility of Spanish tapas and shares some of the memories and experiences that were unlocked by her latest cookbook The Food Of Spain. Claudia describes the role that food plays in the Spanish family home and the origins of some the best know Spanish foods that we regularly eat in Scotland today.

Chef and restaurant owner Steven Devlin takes some traditional Spanish tapas ideas and adds a unique Scottish twist to them, cooking up some Scottish tapas live in the studio. The recipes will be available to download from this page.

Mention the word chorizo and you probably think of something traditionally Spanish. If you think of venison then it'll probably conjure up an image of something very Scottish. But can the two be combined? Dan Holland meets one producer who is doing exactly that.

When it comes to Spanish wine there's a good chance most of us will immediately think of rioja but Master of Wines Rose Murray Brown talks us through the vast range of alternative Spanish wines to help broaden our horizons.

Traditional Spanish tapas, contemporary Scottish tapas and Spanish wines beyond rioja!

World food expert Ghillie Basan makes roasted peppers stuffed with feta cheese. The recipe will be available to download from this page.
