    On this week’s Biting Talk with Two Chicks, we find out what happens after you successfully pitch a business on Dragon’s Den. Private chef venture YHangry got the money, but a year on do they have the customers? Then we nip to the Scottish Lowlands where spirits entrepreneur Finnian Gill introduces us to John Paul Jones, a rum steeped in seaweed…Then, reflecting on a tumultuous year in hospitality, we talk to chef Michel Roux Jr. Plus there’s our cocktail of the week from Biting Talk mixologist Farhad Heydari from the House of Heydari.
