He visits Holy Island and Coquet Island, accompanied by Michelin-starred chef Kenny Atkinson, who owns the House of Tides restaurant in Newcastle.

They learn how Mead is made on Holy Island, James cooks up a Singapore-inspired crab and lobster dish on a stunning beach, then they both enjoy a puffin cruise at Coquet Island, near Amble.

There's a trip to a lobster hatchery too, before James cooks local speciality Singing Hinnies on another breath-taking beach.
