Have you ever heard a grown man beg for a pie? It's quite a disturbing sound to be honest. Luckily, that part has largely been edited out of this episode, but Tom Shepherd gave into Simon's persistent requests and (SPOILER ALERT), made him the pie that won him Great British Menu. Tom's restaurant, Upstairs in Lichfield, has had a meteoric rise from opening during Covid, immediately getting a Michelin star and having a waiting list longer than the reign of some Prime Ministers. He chats to Tom about a memorable visit from a Michelin inspector, where he eats in Lichfield, and of course GBM. We a ..read more

He's back. I mean, he's not been anywhere to be honest, just mooching around town like a culinary nuisance, but he's our culinary nuisance. The break has been a little big longer than anticipated - soz - but we're back with a bang. Or maybe back with an air horn would be more accurate. That will make sense when you listen. Brad bloody Carter's on! Simon visited Brad last year at his pop-up at Westlands UK in Evesham. He showed him around his herb garden; discussed his favourite places to eat in Brum; and let him join the hitherto STRICTLY employee only Staff lunch. His Westlands' restaurant cl ..read more

Welcome to another episode of the crumbliest, flakiest food podcast around, presented by food writer Simon Carlo.

He won Masterchef: The Professionals a few years ago and we discover what went on behind the scenes.

We know, we know. The Meat & One Veg Podcast might be better named The Wine & Two Pints Podcast. And it's in that vain we go big on beer in this episode. Food writer Simon Carlo chats to beer guru Laura Hadland. Beer doesn't agree with Simon and Laura doesn't agree with some beer, hence the 'bleeps'! She guides us through the wonderful world of hops, barley, water and yeast and teaches us a few things that will help even the most beer-phobic find something to suit their taste. Then we have a quick catch-up with Sai from god-tier, Brum, street food stalwarts Buddha Belly. They're about ..read more
