Brilliantly refreshing

I’m new to the world of podcasts and stumbled across the nightcap while search for Marco Pierre white content. I’ve got to say, the shows are amazing. Listening to Paul Foster saying how it is being a chef, straight to the point, being truthful and also educating on what we should be looking for in food is insightful. I live around 40 minutes just outside Coventry from the Salt restaurant and will taking a trip there any day soon because it sounds incredible. Keep up the great work guys, it’s great listening to you!

My Favourite Podcast!

I’ve always loved this podcast. I was lucky enough to come to one of Paul’s pasta masterclasses upstairs at Salt - it was so cool to sit in the room where the podcast is recorded! (The masterclass was good too!) Keep up the good work guys!
