    Jay Rayner hosts a culinary panel show packed full of tasty titbits. This week he welcomes Sophie Wright, Tim Anderson, Sumayya Usmani and Professor Barry Smith to answer questions from a virtual audience.

    After all that rich food over the festive period, you may be in need of a palette cleanser. Professor Barry Smith leads the team in an experiment to test why mackerel and horseradish work so well together. Beyond the science, the panellists cosy on down to discuss hot drinks with some spice and the unexpectedly divisive subject of slow cooking.

Great

I love this podcast. A lovely balance between fun and good culinary advice.

Proving dough.

In the winter I always prove my dough on the floor above the underfloor heating. If it’s not cold enough to have the heating on I warm the oven and prove the dough on the top of that in a glass bowl. I should clarify that I have a table top oven.

Love it

One of my favourite, relaxing podcasts. Perfect for popping on as I wash up or put clothes away. Had some really good insights to improve my cooking from here. However, the canned laughter occasionally grated on me. All in all, really good.
