    S11 Ep 17: Guy Garvey

    This week we welcome Manchester mensch Guy Garvey over for lunch. We chat to Guy over Ottolenghi lamb and pistachio patties about being dragged to black pudding stalls in Bury market growing up, his original worker bee tattoo and the importance of eating pies up north. He tells us how he met his wife Rachel at a wedding over cigarettes, having dinner with Joan Collins and his secret ingredient - instant coffee - in his spag bol sauce. This week, Elbow are celebrating 20 years of their first album ‘Asleep In The Back’ and we find out the band's favourite karaoke spots on tour. We love Guy even more as he brought over two bottles of wine and a second pud from Soho's finest, Cafe de Nata . Enjoy! X

    S11 Ep 16: Tom Jones

    We were delighted to have our most requested guest, Sir Tom Jones, over to Lennie’s for lamb shanks, a lemon curd roulade and a chat about his new album ‘Surrounded By Time’. We go way back and talk about Tom growing up in the 50’s, playing marbles, falling in love and getting married at 16. We also hear about his beloved mother’s corned beef pie. He reminisces about meals shared with Elvis Presley, Las Vegas bourbons with Frank Sinatra & Tom’s son / manager Mark even makes an appearance, telling us how his Dad isn’t a very good cook..!! We loved having you Sir Tom, thank you! Enjoy! X

    S11 Ep 15: Laura Mvula

    This week we invite Laura Mvula over for lunch. Laura is about to bring out her third record on July 2, Pink Noise, so to celebrate Lennie made a sumptuous chicken, spiced potatoes, salad and Nigella's salted chocolate chunks!
    We talk about the ‘changing landscape’ in the music industry, her musically gifted siblings and her podcast series ’So You Wanna Be A Musician’ she launched with her sister.
    We go from growing up in Birmingham in a Christian household to a first kiss in Jamaica, supporting Prince on tour to Single Ladies being her karaoke song. It's all in there!
    Love this girl and it's a joy to have her back with such wonderful music!

    S11 Ep 14: Benny Blanco

    S11 Ep 14: Benny Blanco

    We welcome back one of my favourite people in the world, Benny Blanco to TM. Mum didn't get to be in the episode we recorded in LA years ago so it felt only right to chat to Benny again! He talks about his new album Friends Keep Secrets 2, working with Gracie Abrams, his 2 cooking shows about eating (hence why Ben and I get on so well) and being the king of slow cooked meat. We manage to finish off his last supper meal (last time I think the devils lettuce may have interfered with that) and you all get to hear his greatest hit yet, the ambient pioneering sound of Benny weeing whilst talking to us on zoom. Enjoy! X

    S11 Ep 13: Naomi Scott

    S11 Ep 13: Naomi Scott

    Now that we can record outside, it was a pleasure to have over the treasure that is Naomi Scott for a Tuna Nicoise salad and Orange & Almond cake.
    We first met at a Vogue x Tiffany fashion party for the BAFTAs and I adored her. Everyone knows her for playing Princess Jasmine in the Aladdin remake, but now she has turned her hand to fictional podcasting, producing and starring in 'Soft Voice' alongside Olivia Cooke and Bel Powley. It's fab.
    Naomi talks about growing up as the Pastor's daughter, her Nan’s cooking and early memories of making Chapati's together.
    She also talks about her (very handsome) husband who she met at 16 at church and growing up surrounded by gospel music in Hounslow. By the way if you haven't heard her voice, you will soon. It's incredible.
    We agree that Naomi has good table manners and I believe she is the first guest to list a Banoffee pie as her last dessert (made by cousin Hannah). Great choice!!!
    Lennie can't get a word in edge ways (sorry mum), we loved her coming over! Xx

    S11 Ep 12: will.i.am

    Fill up my cup! We have will.i.am on TM! Will talks about his ‘pancizza' creation (a pancake pizza), being a vegan over the past 4 years, how he loves a song with ‘boom’ in the lyrics and growing up eating his Mum’s goulash. We get to learn how 'Ordinary People' came about with John Legend, Black Eyed Peas record label stories, his involvement with Beats and singing ‘mazal tov’ around the world!!
    Black Eye Peas new single ‘Shake Ya Boom Boom’ is out now with Static & Ben El
