Several Suffolk businesses are set to feature in a new TV series hosted by TV presenter and chef Rick Stein. 

Rick Stein's Food Stories is a new 15-part show that is airing every weeknight at 6.30pm.

Throughout the series, the TV presenter travels around the UK discovering the food that is popular in each region. 

Tonight the show will dedicate an entire episode to the Suffolk food scene, featuring the best of the local produce on offer.

According to Stein's website, the chef explores the "nation’s breadbasket, as it has the perfect soil and the right amount of sunshine to grow the best wheat".

It adds: "Rick meets Alexander and Emily, owners of Acre Farm, to learn how to make sourdough bread properly.

"They bake their bread the traditional way with a wood-fired oven."

He is then due to visit the home of one of his favourite authors, George Orwell, who moved to Southwold as a youngster.

The website said: "Rick visits a new local café, Canteen owned by chef, Nicola Horden where it strives to make food available for all with the concept of ‘pay what you can lunches’.

"Nicola makes Rick a rainbow chard and St Jude curd tart made from local and organic ingredients."

To end the episode, Stein heads to Aldeburgh, where he reconnects with a local fisherman.

The website said: "Rick meets up with fisherman, Dean Fryer who he first met over 20 years ago on Rick’s TV series, Food Heroes.

"He’s now the only local fisherman who goes out to sea every day and he sells his catch to the local business and the community."

Stein then uses the meetings he has to inspire recipes that he cooks for the nation. 

Rick Stein's Food Stories: Suffolk will air on Wednesday at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
