Cillian Shields learns about the Mediterranean diet, chatting artichokes with Montse Lozano from El Prat Agricultural Cooperative, olive oil with Victor Huguet from Oils of Catalonia, and pickled veg with Rioverde's Alejandra Rovira and Cristina Bezares.

Cristina Tomàs White looks at the past, present and future of vegetarianism with Flax & Kale's Jordi Barri, Maria Sánchez from Noel charcuterie, and Ana Torrejón, a chemical engineer developing cultured meat with Ainia.

This week's Catalan phrase is 's'ha acabat el bròquil'. Literally, 'the broccoli's over', it's used when there's nothing left of something or when something's done or finished.

Presented by Lorcan Doherty.
