Campaign Ripening

Food is such an important narrative for me. I still connect it with the best and worst things that have ever happened in my life.

In 2005 we made a ten-part documentary for the BBC about chef Oliver Rowe, setting up a restaurant in Kings Cross and sourcing all his food from within London. The series was a global success, showing around the world for many years after. Since then, the seasonal and local food landscape has exploded. Last year Oliver wrote a book called ‘A Food for All Seasons’ about his relationship with food.

Director Stephen Ashwell and Producer Miriam Van Emst went to make a film to talk about his journey to today.
