This podcast makes me so HUNGRY!

Absolutely love this podcast and have had endless conversations and internal monologues about what my dream restaurant meal would be.

And the answer is bread ✔️ Dessert ✔️ Cheeseboard ✖️

Stagumph ,

Never know the guests

I like it. Ed and James are amazing. But typically I only know of around 1 in 6 of the interviewees/guests. I don’t really care about someone I don’t knows fav food. Not compelling enough.
