A NEW Exmoor-based TV show is coming to our screens this weekend.

Starting tomorrow (December 5) at 9am, then repeated on Sunday, viewers can enjoy a weekly visit to Claire’s Kitchen in Wootton Courtenay in Exmoor National Park.

TV Presenter Suzanne Selvester spends time with Claire Lynch, her family and some of her team on Claire’s Exmoor smallholding to sample some culinary delights and pick up some top kitchen tips.

Lynch's catering business Claire's Kitchen is already well known in West Somerset and her ready meals have been a massive success during lockdown (and at other times!).

Now her name will become a less well kept local secret, as her new national TV series launches this weekend.

She will be cooking up some delicious dishes, both sweet and savoury, and sharing some health-boosting juice recipes.

She also talks about how she and her husband Chris keep an organic smallholding, how important eating locally-sourced food is, and the heart-warming story of how her business came about.

Lynch said: "I have been given an amazing opportunity to share my love and passion for cooking - inspired by my mum who reckons I was by her side as soon as I could walk and, believe me, she is an amazing cook - but always using local, free range and always seasonal.

"My husband and I have always strived for home reared, organic and chemical-free for our smallholding and for Claire's Kitchen.

"I have always wanted my own Exmoor-themed cookery show at my home and am so excited it’s finally happened!"

“Spending time at Claire’s amazing organic farm in Somerset was an absolute pleasure," said presenter Selvester.

"Not only did I hang out with the pigs and chickens, but I also got to sample Claire's exquisite cooking.

"Her ability to turn simple ingredients into mouth-watering dishes is astonishing and her roast dinner is, by far, the best I have ever had.

"Learning to cook with her was an absolute joy.

"The people of Somerset are lucky to have Claire’s Kitchen on their doorstep, but I don’t need to tell them that, they already know.”

Claire's Kitchen will be shown as part of Feel Good Factor TV (Showcase TV, Sky Channel 191), which launched in November.

This new TV series is dedicated to health and wellbeing, featuring a series of short shows (varying in length from three to 24 minutes) designed to inspire and uplift, entertain and educate.
