Food Tribe is a weekly show all about the people doing great things in the world of food.
Join host Georgie Creaven as she sits down with chefs, farmers, producers, and restaurateurs to talk about their food journeys, and the highs and lows of working in the industry. And it’s 2020, we’re in the midst of a climate crisis which means we can’t be talking about food without looking at the bigger picture and the power and impact our choices have on our food system, our communities, and our environment. This is a podcast that celebrates the people and places making their mark on our food industry.
Ep 57: Farmer and Butcher Ian Warren - Philip Warren Butchers
My guest today is farmer and butcher Ian Warren, who owns the family-run Philip Warren Butchers in Cornwall. They produce and sell some of the highest quality meat in the UK, supplying top restaurants in the country, and also selling directly to consumers.
Ian and I talk about the work he does and what is means to rear and sell quality meat, and he shares some background on livestock farming in the UK, and how we as consumers can make better, more informed decisions when buying and eating meat.
Ep 56: Winemaker and farmer Ben Walgate - Tillingham Wines
My guest today is the creative, unconventional, and brilliant Willy Wonka of British wine. Ben Walgate is pushing the boundaries of winemaking in the UK - from the grape varieties he uses, the styles of wine he’s producing, his combination of aging methods, to his vision for the farm and his wine.
Ben is so charismatic, and his love for wine is infectious. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
Ep 55: Lori De Mori & Laura Jackson - the magic of Towpath
Towpath Café is a rare and precious treasure of a place that is loved by so many.
They’ve been open for ten years and to mark the occasion, the owners, Lori De Mori and Laura Jackson have published their book Towpath - recipes and stories.
It was an honour to be able to sit down with these two lovely ladies and talk about the book and the whole Towpath journey and how they’ve created this piece of magic on a tiny stretch of Regent’s canal.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
Ep 54: Chef, baker and wanderluster Pamela Yung
Pam is head chef of Jame’s Lowe’s wine bar and bakery Flor in Borough Market, and she’s the brains behind the insanely good ASAP pizza.
I met Pam a few weeks ago to talk about her story and background, and how she found her way into the kitchen. This is a wide-ranging conversation - we cover everything from pizza, to travel, to differences between NYC and London, and Pam’s experience of being a child of immigrant parents and finding the courage to follow her heart and do what she loves.
Ep 53: Owner and founder of e5 Bakehouse - Ben MacKinnon
E5 Bakehouse is a beloved neighbourhood spot in the heart of Hackney, but their impact goes way beyond the postcode – a seminal London bakery, whose foundations are built on sustainability, on using the best produce grown in harmony with nature, and who see the community, relationships, and quality as key to building a successful food business.
Owner and founder Ben MacKinnon shares the e5 story and how it all came to be.
Ep 52: Chef Masaki Sugisaki
After selling his family's restaurants outside Tokyo, chef Masaki Sugisaki moved to London to work at Nobu, and later formed part of the founding team at the original Dinings in Marylebone. The Japanese food culture and respect for produce governs his whole approach to cooking. No compromise on quality, he cooks seasonally and uses the whole ingredient, and has direct relationships with his seafood suppliers, and it shows on the plate - fresh, thoughtful, and absolutely delicious. Here is Masaki's story...
