    S16 Ep 19: Tommy Banks

    We have a Michelin star chef, star of Great British Menu, restauranteur and farmer Tommy Banks joining us this week. Mum was very anxious about her menu, but rustled up some delicious (and vegan!?) green spinach pancakes served with fried eggs, roasted tomatoes & butter beans. We heard how Tommy names all his cows alphabetically (a Jessie & Lennie coming up?), he gives a great pitch for watching cricket, his hatred for baked beans, cooking at festivals for naked customers, enjoying brie omelettes for breakfast and after winning ‘Best Sunday Roast’ at his pub, he has a bone to pick with Jessie from last weeks ep! Thank you Tommy, can’t wait to visit your farm and restaurants in Yorkshire soon!

    It’s Valentines Day, so what better way to celebrate than with my favourite galentine, mum! Mum had already made all the food when sadly our guest had to to cancel, so waste not, want not we say! We had a delicious girls lunch and talked all about our favourite meals from growing up, thoroughly discussed our last suppers (mum couldn’t believe what I chose) and answered all your fabulous questions that were sent in. Join us for a very special episode, just the two of us! Happy Valentines!

    S16 Ep 17: Johannes Radebe

    Mum has waited a long time for this one... our very first Strictly guest and none other than the FABULOUS Johannes Radebe. We chatted all about his journey to becoming a dancing sensation, growing up in a Zulu family, his mums Chakalaka & how he’s eaten the same takeaway dish every day in London since 2021…. We ate Jamie’s Oliver pulled brisket chilli - with a whole lotta sides! Mum made a delicious ‘moist’ orange cake for pud. 
    He took the half finished bottle of champagne in the taxi home with him and THAT is our kinda guest!

    S16 Ep 16: Jacob Collier

    Brightening up our cold January with his fabulous colourful outfit and wonderful positivity was our next guest, musical prodigy Jacob Collier. Jacob and his magical ocarina joined us for dinner, and we learnt all about how he was discovered by Quincy Jones, his unusual rider choices (limoncello anyone?!) his mums legendary apple pie, and his week spent listening to the full Beatles back catalogue in lockdown. Thank you for popping round Jacob, you’re an absolute delight! Jacob’s new album Djesse Vol.4 is released globally on the 29th February. X

    S16 Ep 15: James O'Brien

    We’ve got radio supremo James O’Brien joining us this week, and mum hasn’t been this excited since she met Marcus Rashford last year. Despite the special occasion, mum had a corker of a culinary disaster which she salvaged in one of the best ways possible - plus we didn’t tell James on the day, and he’s only just finding out now, sorry James! Over dinner, James told us all the best stories, including how he signed up for boarding school purely to join their school play, his self confessed terrible job as a showbiz correspondent, interviewing Ian Brown the day after he was dumped, and we discovered he is a fellow Graecophile too, all the best people are! James’ best-seller book ‘How They Broke Britain’ is available to purchase now.

    S16 Ep 14: Jessie Buckley

    On our latest episode the absolutely wonderful Jessie Buckley joins us for lunch in the middle of promo for her new film Wicked Little Letters. Jessie zoomed round to mum’s on the back of a motorbike & Mum rustled up a rare Table Manners plate of pasta with prawns & tomatoes. We heard all Jessie’s fabulous stories about her colourful and loud household she grew up in, her wedding catering, drinking Twinkles with the stars at The Ivy at 18 years old old and she offers up a stellar last supper that includes oysters and giant chocolate buttons. The most brilliant actress and singer, we loved having the divine Jessie on. Jessie’s brand new film Wicked Little Letters is released in cinemas on the 23rd February.

A taste of home for a lass that moved down under!

I cannot express how much I love your podcast. It feels like I am at one of my mates’ houses in London. Fond memories are soaring! But on top of this, Jessie and Lenny; you are great conversationalists. You bring out the best in everyone and I have attempted to recreate a few of your meals as I am a total food addict! Lots of love from central Victoria, Australia xx

Nattles baby ,

Beautiful dynamic

Wonderful concept, however the interrupting of guests becomes overwhelming at times. I start following one of their stories and then never get to hear the end. I understand you’re trying to steer the conversation but it is a clunky transition and I occasionally switch off out of frustration.
