    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

    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

    S11 Ep 11: Jon Sopel

    S11 Ep 11: Jon Sopel

    This is a GREAT episode. Zooming in from Washington DC, we talk to BBC North America Editor Jon Sopel about his new book ‘UnPresidented'.
    Jon reveals that he was known to Trump as 'the guy who asks stroppy questions in the briefing room’. We get to hear about Obama's Christmas parties and the exquisite food laid on compared to the fries and chicken wings at Trump's do. He's been - and reported from - everywhere and we hear what family life is like for an international correspondent.
    Growing up in the East end and spending a lot of time at the Jewish Youth Centre, he tells us about his bar mitzvah and the injustice of his friends being allowed to sneak off with luncheon vouchers...
    He longs to go to the Holly Bush pub in Hampstead as soon as he’s back in London and talks about having a TikTok account, thanks to his daughter who was incredibly impressed that he’s on Table Manners!
    And we will leave you with this gem from Mr Sopel - 'Food off other people’s plates contains no calories'. Enjoy!

    S11 Ep 10: Hannah Ware

    S11 Ep 10: Hannah Ware

    The time has come for the world to meet Lennie's number one, The One's leading lady and the one who knocked her little sister's front tooth out. Zooming in from LA, and making a classic Ware effort in her dressing gown, Hannah Ware joins Table Manners!

    Boyfriend Jonah (who runs the fab Freedman’s LA restaurant) is on hand to be sound tech and meal translator whilst Han talks about having heart palpitations when sharing a takeaway meal with Jessie.

    We talk about about hiking (aka walking up a hill), her new no.1 charting Netflix show The One, eating above Barneys and she lends a tip to ‘always moisturise your elbows because they show your age'.

    Her last meal involves a vodka martini with a twist, and McDonald's fries and we talk about mum being the host with the absolute most.

    It's a family affair! Don't miss it!

    S11 Ep 9: Dan Levy

    S11 Ep 9: Dan Levy

    This guest has not only won every award under the sun, now he's had Lennie get the ring light on and quote every line of his global television phenomenon 'Schitt's Creek' to him! We welcome with wide, open, Jewish motherly arms the sensational Dan Levy to TM!
    Fresh off the back of Golden Globe wins, we natter with this Toronto mensch from his childhood home and discuss his love of Heat magazine, London and working with his family.
    He's not a fan of vegetables is our Dan, with a carb heavy last supper, but we forgive him as he makes us swoon over 'Schitt's Creek' stories, his Pret order and his karaoke song choice. Now I'm desperate to set him up with Dr Alex so he can become my brother in law.
    Dan Levy everyone! You're absolutely welcome! X

How Do You Know Someone’s a Vegan...

...... they’ll tell you!! And boy did Will.i.am tell us. Very boring episode but I love this podcast normally. Often the less famous guests who come across best.
