Amanda Owen joined Summer on the Farm chef Tim Bilton in the kitchen this evening as she prepared a fresh pasta dish with ingredients she had foraged earlier in the week. However, the Our Yorkshire Farm star surprised the chef by admitted she had an unusual “fear” of the Italian food on the Channel 5 show.

Earlier this week, Amanda foraged for ingredients with expert Lucy Cuzzocrea in the Saltburn Valley Gardens in North Yorkshire. 

In tonight’s edition of Summer on the Farm, she joined Tim in the kitchen and was shown how to make a dish with the items she’d found in the forest. 

Tim began by talking Amanda through making a pasta dough before taking over. 

“Is that any good?” Amanda asked as she stretched the dough. “I think I’m a bit heavy-handed.”

Working the dough through the pasta machine, Tim said: “How easy is that?”

Amanda replied: “I’m quite surprised I don’t know why but I’ve always been quite fearful of pasta.

“I’ve never cooked fresh pasta and it cooks a lot quicker which is always a bonus.”

Tim prepared a roasted beetroot and dandelion salad, using the dandelions Amanda had foraged. 

Once the dish had been prepared, Amanda remarked: “I guess the proof is in the tasting, isn’t it?”

“Indescribable flavours,” The Yorkshire Shepherdess commented. “Foraging was a fantastic experience.”

Back on the farm, Tim joined hosts Helen Skelton and Jules Hudson with a selection of dishes he’d prepared with Amanda’s ingredients. 

“We’ve got the wild garlic pesto, it’s quite a subtle flavour and it’s really nice, look how vibrant and green it is,” Tim remarked.

Tucking into a different dish, Jules asked: “Have I got the wrong one?”

“That’s not what he made,” Helen joked. “I love what you make but the nettles leave a lot to be desired.”

Tim assured Helen there were no nettles in the dish before discussing whether he enjoyed cooking using foraged ingredients. 

“It would be nice if Amanda could foraging a cow,” the chef joked. “Don’t get me wrong I’m all about seasonality on the farm.” 

Tim was diagnosed with terminal cancer two years ago and opened up about the “amazing” treatment he’s receiving. 

“I was told I had 12 months to go,” he revealed. “Don’t get me wrong terminal cancer is terminal cancer.

“But it’s being controlled by immunotherapy which is doing an amazing job.

“It’s giving me hope, purpose and giving me time, time with my family.”

Summer on the Farm airs on Channel 5 on weekdays at 8pm.
