Punk Chef Scott Garthwaite travels to Bristol to sample the city’s huge vegan scene. It has been said that Bristol is the vegan capital of the world and has an ever-increasing band of vegan restaurants and an army of foodie followers. After an early morning trip to Bristol Fruit Market, which provides many chefs and businesses in the South West with fresh produce from the area and all over the world, Scott meets celebrated young chef Rob Howell at his restaurant Root on the harbourside at Bristol’s Wapping Wharf. Scott samples Rob’s vegan asparagus, almond and preserved lemon dish and is inspired to make avocado tacos with produce he has from the market. Scott meets up with David Ellington, a Deaf actor and native Bristolian of Jamaican decent to chat about his life and to sample some Caribbean inspired vegan food. To find out more about the city’s relationship with edible plants, Scott meets Sara Venn who founded a community based urban garden scheme where anyone can plant, and anyone can take before making a rhubarb dessert. Finally, Scott goes to country house hotel Berwick Lodge to meet up with Deaf gardener Robert Dunster who tells Scott how he used to be gardener to the Queen. Scott then cooks a vegan gnocchi dish with wild garlic for Robert before sampling his first vegan burger.
