It takes a lot to drag me off the tube network, and there is nowhere much further off it than The Sportsman, on the Kent coast.  Self-taught cook Stephen Harris is doing something special out in this remote spot, going back to the true essence of food and stripping away unnecessary fripperies. He is obsessed with ingredients: how many chefs churn their own butter or cure their own meat?  This passion, together with real skill in the kitchen, delivered one of my favourite meals of 2008.  The interview can be found here
