    Who Run The World? Andi Oliver

    Who Run The World? Andi Oliver

    This is the first of our Who Run The World? podcast season celebrating women in food.
    Since the start of Honey & Co women have reigned supreme; they run our kitchens, our front of house and our offices, and we finally feel that the industry is starting to catch up with us. Women are now leading the way across the industry, not just as chefs but as food critics, as writers, as culinary teachers, tv and radio presenters and so much more.
    So, with International Women’s Day on the horizon we wanted to dedicate a whole season to some of the women who inspire us every single day!
    Today’s guest is Andi Oliver, she’s the most vivacious and beautiful person we’ve had the chance to meet this year. The interview with her is absolutely hilarious. We talked about her career in a punk band, and how she made the transition to chef and then to food broadcaster. Her show The Great British Menu is one of our absolute favourite shows, you should watch it - we spend hours arguing over what we would make!
    Listen to find out more about how she managed to get where she is and how she broke the glass ceiling. We are also so excited to hear about her current project collecting recipes from all around the Caribbean, Wadadli Kitchen.  
    This interview is part of our series Who Run The World? Women in Food. Our final episode will air on 8th March International Women’s Day.

    Honey & Smoke Birthday Special with Gill Meller

    Honey & Smoke Birthday Special with Gill Meller

    The third and final instalment of our special smoke series to celebrate the third birthday of our grill restaurant Honey & Smoke.
    In this episode we had the wonderful Gill Meller join us all the way from Dorset. 
    First we head into the kitchen with Sarit and Itamar to cook up some lamb chops and plums on the grill, a favourite here at Honey & Smoke over the last 3 years and talk about their love of fire growing up! 
    Then they chat to Gill Meller, the chef, cookbook author and fellow fire-lover who joined us to celebrate our 3rd and final party for the 3rd birthday of Honey & Smoke! Gill talks about his experiments with fire and cooking outside growing up, bringing this to River Cottage and the different techniques he uses, from nailing fish to planks to wrapping food in clay. We ate a gorgeous meal including focaccia bread with bacon & herbs, homemade cheese with herbs, clay baked onions, grilled cabbage with carraway & garlic butter and wood roast lamb shoulder and finished with gorgeous honey and coriander cakes. Such a memorable meal! 
    We were so happy to welcome fire-loving chefs Olia Hercules, Ben Chapman and Gill Meller to celebrate with us! We hope you enjoyed the series. Each chef brought a completely different perspective to cooking over the coals and it was so much fun to cook with them. Please remember to rate and review if you enjoyed!

    Honey & Smoke Birthday Special with Ben Chapman

    Honey & Smoke Birthday Special with Ben Chapman

    The second instalment of our special smoke series to celebrate the third birthday of our grill restaurant Honey & Smoke.
    In this episode we had the incredible Ben Chapman, co-founder of award-winning restaurants Kiln, Smoking Goat and Brat come cook a Thai-inspired grill menu for us. 
    First we go behind the scenes at Honey & Smoke to cook one of our most popular dishes over the last three years - grilled octopus and prawns with a rich bean stew.
    Then we chat to Ben! We talked all about creating a Thai grill menu at Kiln using a range of simple tao barbecues; his story of becoming a chef; the travels, cooking and learning that led to combining British grown ingredients with Thai recipes. Such a fascinating conversation! 
    We sat down for a sensational menu including delicious liver grilled in sage, raw Jersey beef laap, jungle curry of kippers, mackerel mashwi and Tamwoth belly kapi curry. It was sensational - so vibrant, spicy and smoky.
    Each chef brought a completely different perspective to cooking over the coals and it was so much fun to cook with them. Stay tuned for the final episode with Gill Meller who's coming from Dorset to cook some lamb and chat fire with us!
