    S9 Ep 9: Dua Lipa

    S9 Ep 9: Dua Lipa

    So it may be week 2 of lockdown but we have something to celebrate. We have been trying to get this star for aaaaages and finally we did! Popstar sensation Dua Lipa shares a virtual dinner with mum and I whilst she is stuck in London quarantine with her excellent second album Future Nostalgia just out.
    We talk stockpiling hot sauces, Nutella sandwiches in her lunchbox, Pez rider requests, where she goes for good sushi dates in NYC and mum and Dua bond over gel nails. But even though we have probably the hugest popstar we have ever had, it doesn't stop mum interrupting our chat for her Ocado order.
    We loved chatting to Dua and absolutely adore the new record which is out now go and listen x For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    S9 Ep 8: Nick Grimshaw

    It's lockdown. But that isn't going to stop us serving you Tables Manners, even in special circumstances.
    I've moved the family out to an Airbnb to make sure Corona can't get her mitts on Lennie, Dr Alex is on the frontline, so it's a quiet (and clean) house for mum and means this is our first episode recorded remotely.
    Via the internet the wonderful, funny and gorgeous Grimmy joined us for a virtual dinner with mum and I. We talk bulk buying Hobnobs whilst in isolation, growing up in Manchester, eating luxuriously late now he isn't on breakfast radio and living on Freddos when he made it to London. Although gutted to not have him over and give him a kiss, cuddle and chicken soup it was a Zoom revelation and a welcome relief from a heavy week!

    S9 Ep 7: Riz Ahmed

    S9 Ep 7: Riz Ahmed

    It was our biggest delight to cook a Monday vegetarian risotto for one of this country's absolute treasures, actor, musician and all round excellent person, Riz Ahmed (even if he then did tell us he had chicken for lunch). We elbow bump and discuss growing up in London, school, PPE at Oxford, his mum's Nihari being on his last supper, Naughty Boy being a good cook and Asma Khan's Darjeeling Express being one of his favourite London restaurants. I want to know everything about his break up album with Britain 'The Long Goodbye' and the incredibly powerful short film (shout out Aneil Karia) and despite proclaiming to 'not be much of a pudding person' we watch dear Riz have two helpings of roasted rhubarb and stem ginger Eton mess. Our new critical topic of the school lunchbox continues as we delve into his; penguins, jam sandwiches and 'no pork’ stickers in school. Riz we love you, you're amazing and it's bloody frustrating that people are going to have to wait a little longer to see the live show for The Long Goodbye.

    S9 Ep 6: Zawe Ashton

    We welcomed the beautiful and brilliant Zawe Ashton to ours last Friday with an unexpected guest, Fresh Meat co-star Charlotte Richie (who Jessie used to babysit back in the day!).
    The author and actress devoured mums sticky short ribs (even kindly put them on her last supper meal!), spoke all about being a child actor, being bullied, The Handmaids Tale and her new book Character Breakdown. We chatted about the go to places to eat after you've stepped off stage on Broadway, how savoury porridge saved her life, the thrills of cheap red wine and being a devotee of Terry's Chocolate Orange. She shares with us her mum's Ugandan cooking, what was in her lunchbox and Lennie’s love of Margaret Atwood. This has SO MUCH GOOD STUFF IN IT! Enjoy and thank you Zawe for being so wonderful x For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    S9 Ep 5: Jo Brand

    Queen comic Jo Brand turned up at our doorstep laden with gifts; a nativity tote bag and shoes to polish the floor with! We tucked into an effortless mid-week roast whilst discussing hairy gooseberries, sandwich spread, road rage, being heckled and Paul Hollywood! This wonderful woman can do no wrong, and it was an absolute pleasure finally getting her on the pod after a drunken proposal two years ago at Jools Holland's Hootenanny (god do I sound like I'm Jessica in Love is Blind?!)

Despip ,

Delightful!

Did I ever imagine I'd be leaving a review about a podcast hosted by a singer I never knew existed (sorry Jessie) and her mom cooking dinner? No, but here we are. This podcast is like a delightful auditory balm for whatever ales you and it will re-instill your faith in humanity. I absoltely adore these two, their banter, their connection to family and their incredible food! It's like chicken soup for the soul. Also, I happen to be Greek and their references and love for Greek cooking are the best! Keep up the wonderful work and I can't wait for the cookbook :)

So refreshingly adorable

I came by this podcast by chance (I think I searched for another Ed Sheeran interview and this came up) but I have to admit I stumbled upon a treasure. Both hosts are so fresh and genuine. The guests always sound relaxed and like they are actually having a closed doors dinner with a new friend. Thank you for keeping me company with your podcast. Keep it up!!
