Cooking pals Ruairidh Munro and Uisdean Macleod are back for a new season of Seòid a' Chidsin on BBC ALBA - knocking up a smorgasbord of mouth-watering dishes using fresh, local produce.

The six-part series features passionate home cooks Ruairidh, aged 44, and Uisdean, 54, from the islands of Harris and Lewis respectively.

In the seventh series of Seòid a' Chidsin (The Kitchen Coves), the lads take a look at a variety of topics including sustainability, cooking on a budget, the influence of Patagonia and a whole episode dedicated to one main ingredient - Herring.

They also look at making the most of your ingredients, leftovers and preparing food to fill a picnic basket.

The lads also get out and about at the start of each episode to set the scene and give some background to the recipes they create back in their kitchen - which was built in an old barn in Back by Moja producer Kenny Stewart. Featuring a water bath, dehydrator and a barbecue, it has everything the lads need to deliver their culinary creations.

Uisdean and Ruairidh sit down to enjoy the fruits of their labour.

From venison loin fillet and locally-caught hake to freshly-caught scallops and salmon scotch eggs, each dish is constructed with care and enjoyed heartily by the two firm friends.  From the highest peak to the lowest depth, Ruairidh and Uisdean go to great lengths to source the best produce for their dishes.

Ruairidh, a journalist from Borve on the west coast of Harris, and Uisdean, a broadcast engineer from Carloway, have been pals for 20 years.  While Ruairidh is a keen amateur cook and previously worked at a bakery in Harris, Uisdean has some catering training and a passion for fishing.  Their journey to Seòid a' Chidsin started with a curry when Ruairidh moved back to the islands from Glasgow and, all these years later, their food and friendship continues to evolve.

Series seven of Seòid a' Chidsin (Kitchen Coves) airs on BBC ALBA on Thursday January 26 at 10pm and will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer for 30 days.
