    Episode 7 features former Masterchef champion and Japanese food devotee Tim Anderson, who cooks sushi hand rolls with fish fingers in the middle, and talks about everything from the joy of Japan’s convenience stores to why running a restaurant is a terrible idea. It’s a lovely episode.

    Tim Hayward cooks an Egg Mayonnaise Sandwich

    This episode features a brilliantly rambling conversation with Tim Hayward - writer, critic, journalist, broadcaster, bakery owner and self-confessed food nerd of the very first order. Tim is a man who can, will and often does spend a whole week thinking about nothing but the differences between mayonnaise and salad cream, then telling us all why that’s important. We need him.

    Santiago Lastra cooks Crab Chalupas

    Santiago Lastra cooks Crab Chalupas

    This week’s guest is Santiago Lastra. Santiago has been cooking at the top of the restaurant game, all over the world, for years. Spain, Italy, France, the Ukraine, Denmark, Mexico - think of a country, he’s probably run a successful pop-up there. Now he’s opened a restaurant in London called Kol that’s creating intricate, complex Mexican dishes, but with ingredients from the UK.  We joined him in his test kitchen to talk about recreating the flavour of avocado with pistachio nuts, putting crab meat under UV light, and being inspired by the humble Ritz cracker. This is a very cheffy one.

    Jimmy Doherty cooks a Sri Lankan Beef Curry

    Jimmy Doherty cooks a Sri Lankan Beef Curry

    He’s helped Luke Skywalker cook roast beef, accidentally set fire to a large swathe of the Suffolk countryside and been a food telly staple for the last 20 years - our latest podcast guest is Jimmy Doherty.

    Jimmy had us round for lunch at his home in the country just outside Ipswich, and laid on a real feast - Sri Lankan beef curry, spiced dahl, coconut sambal and a fiery pineapple relish, accompanied by an organic Riesling, countless puns and a healthy portion of childish innuendo. Dig in.
