    S14 Ep 15: Katherine Ryan

    Happy New Year! It’s our final episode of this series, and this time the Canadian Queen of comedy popped over for lunch just before she gave birth to her 3rd child. With just 2 weeks to go Katherine was absolutely glowing and was unbelievably calm and chilled, in fact so calm she thinks she’s actually already dead and this is her afterlife! Katherine gave us her story of growing up in Canada, the Ice Cream Barbie cakes she would have for her birthdays, the story of her Louis Theroux documentary, and her… big… theory about Pete Davidson! Her new series ‘Romantic Getaway’ with Romesh Ranganathan is out now on Sky Comedy & Now TV. Thank you for being a fabulous end of series guest Katherine! x

    S14 Ep 14: Rita Wilson

    She’s a Hollywood actress, a singer, a hugely successful film producer, and this week we managed to get Rita Wilson to New Cross to join us for lunch. Rita told us all about her love of everything Greek and her shared love of Skopelos (where they filmed her Mamma Mia films!), her new duets album ’Now & Forever’, her favourite dessert of Lime Jello mixed with cream cheese (!!!), and how she and the fabulous Nora Ephron would regularly swap their favourite recipes over dinner parties. We absolutely loved having you over Rita, we’ll let you know how our attempt at the lime jello pudding turns out! x

    Bonus Episode: Nadiya Hussain

    Bonus Episode: Nadiya Hussain

    What a lovely morning of coffee and cake with the divine Nadiya Hussain! Thanks to L'Or & Acast, we returned to Spring Studios for a special recording as part of the Secret Podcast Experience. 
    The baking Queen Nadiya spoke to us (and a wonderful live audience) about the secret to the most delicious brownies (instant coffee!), what it’s like being part of a huge family, feeding 3000 people at her wedding, how she secretly entered the Bake Off, baking birthday cakes for everyone she knows & her questionable last supper (instant mash and tomato soup anyone??). Thank you Nadiya for being such a fantastic guest and speaking so candidly. It was a really inspiring morning. 
    Listen to the episode wherever you get your podcasts!

    S14 Ep 11: Paul Hollywood

    By now you know that mum’s chicken soup only comes out for the big guns… and this week was exactly that.. no pressure mum - we finally got Paul Hollywood!
    Despite mums soggy bottom Tart Nomande, we somehow managed to win him over & had the most wonderful afternoon talking a LOT about food. Lennie even got a handshake. 
    Paul told us all about how he learnt to bake on the job in his dads bakery, his love of custard, snuggling steak out of work in loaves of bread, how he made it on the Telly and sucking on salty chips! 
    Mums waited a long time for this one. Have a listen!

Claire from the Toon ,

Love it!

Have just discovered table manners and I love it! It covers everything I like, food, talking, laughter and love. I wish I was famous so I could be invited round to taste your delicious sounding food but I can make do with listening instead. Please keep doing it forever. P.S I love the naughty bit too.
