I’ve followed Sabrina Ghayour’s career for a while now, and so it was a huge pleasure to finally have her on the podcast. She’s just launched her new cookbook, Persiana Everyday, which was a tough process to write as she wrote it through lockdown, whilst dealing with all the things complexities that have come with the last 2 years. It was also challenging to actually write down the recipes she was creating from her head, and working out measurements but she focuses on simple and delicious recipes that are quick in this book and I can tell you it’s a must buy! She’s not the biggest fan of podca ..read more

I am so happy I have finally met the man himself, Glyn Fussell. And he came to my house. And he loves my granola! The LGBTQ+ trailblazer joined me to talk all about his epic brand and club night, Sink the Pink, co-founding the festival The Mighty Hoopla, and more recently his new podcast and debut book, Manifesto for Misfits. Glyn grew up in Bristol in a huuuuuge family – he’s one of seven! And it was so interesting to hear about his childhood growing up and the nostalgic dishes that take him back to those days. I ask him about the LGBTQ+ community at the moment, whether we’re making progress ..read more

Every now and again I sit down with someone who has a profound effect on me. Jo Malone is one of those people. As the founder of Jo Malone London and Jo Loves, she is the queen of fragrance with her sixth sense of knowing how scents work, and putting different notes together to create some of the best smells in the world. This was an incredibly open and honest conversation, and at times emotional. It was also thought provoking and a lesson into seeing the world in a different way. Jo’s talent also links to her love of food, cooking and the smells of different ingredients and how they play suc ..read more

I sat down with one of my childhood culinary heroes (and my dad’s!), Ken Hom. He recorded from his gorgeous house in France, where he splits his time between there and Thailand. Ken is one of the most celebrated TV chefs of our generation, bringing the flavours of Chinese cooking to our homes. We cover his life in food; how he got into the culinary scene and why he’s still traumatised from his first ever show on the BBC in the 80s! We both bond over the issues with food waste, how much we love the chilli oil in Chinese restaurants and I think he loves crisps as much as I do – he couldn’t even ..read more

I absolutely loved sitting down with my good friend, Eric Lanlard, the French pâtissier extraordinaire. We recorded from his baking school in South West London, Cake Boy, which is the cake emporium you need to know about! Growing up in North West France, Eric knew what he wanted to do since he was 5 years old and signed up to his local patisserie to make sure he was taken on as an apprentice as a teenager. He regales incredible anecdotes from his time working for the French Navy on the battleships, his time in London with The Roux brothers, and he explains the intricacies of patisserie and the ..read more
