ADAM Richman, presenter of popular TV show Man v Food, visited both Langport and Cheddar in the latest episode of his new series.

In Adam Richman Eats Britain, the Brooklyn-based food expert and chef is attempting to shed light on the 'globally misunderstood' and 'unfairly maligned' realm of British cuisine.

The episode of the new Food Network UK show which aired on Monday, April 29, featured the Little Bakery, in Langport, where Adam was blown away by their quiche.

“In this little town called Langport, in Somerset, I had a quiche that is arguably in the top ten foods I’ve eaten in my lifetime, made by a woman named Mel and her two daughters in a bakery," he said.

On Facebook, a spokesperson for the Little Bakery said: "It’s so crazy to think that when Sarah was little, about ten, she would have a sick day home from school we would bring our duvets down, snuggle on the couch and put food network on.

"Only for nearly 17 years to pass and for us to be in exact program we would watch together, which is such a special family moment for us and we’re are so happy to share it would our customers!

"Just a massive thank you again to everyone who has been in this journey with us!"

In the same episode, Richman visited Cheddar, to try Cheddar cheese.

"You can go to Peckham [London] and have incredible Nigerian food, go to Brixton and have breath-taking Jamaican food, south of the river [Thames]," Richman said.

"So we give homage and we give love to Cheddar in Cheddar Gorge, or the Whitstable oyster in Whitstable, but how cool is it to then go Kent, and discover it’s more than that."

He added: "We acknowledge Spain’s impact on food, Japan’s impact on food, Italy’s impact on food – all of which are profound – but people slag off Britain.

“Then you stop and you go, the sandwich has roots here, Cheddar has roots here, Angus beef has roots in Britain."

As a first-generation immigrant in America, Richman celebrated Britain’s culinary diversity, praising the abundance of South Asian, African, and West Indian foods available on the island, saying: “I hope I was able to elevate those voices."
