We believe that watching him sing and laugh has a similar effect to ours, so it’s great to have him back. Season 2 of his cheerful series features him sharing laughter with good food (and dancing). In each episode, he goes to the beach and cooks some meals.”It’s my happy place,”He says that he uses the barbecue to prepare dishes such as Roasted lamb rack dukkah seasoned, served with warm carrots and smoked aubergine.
