Autumn in Burgundy is a foodies dream. Our presenter Merrilees Parker explores the golden vineyards of the Cote D'Or. She picks grapes, celebrates with local wine makers and learns which wines go best with what food. Merrilee visits typical markets, goes mushroom hunting and eats at a farmyard restaurant run by farmer's wives.
She too has to cope under the heat and stress of a 3 Michelin star restaurant, takes a journey in a hot air balloon and meets with local chefs to make frog legs, apple tart, roasted wild mushrooms and beef Bourgignon.
