Noodles can be made of wheat, buckwheat, rice, potatoes, beans, peas…you name it. Noodles are cheap, convenient and keep almost forever. Jane Murphy explores the Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Persian and Italian approach to noodles. And the programme looks at its humble beginnings to today’s culinary triumphs. Plus tune in for the true story of Marco Polo and pasta.
