A lot has changed since the global pandemic began, but one thing remains the same: we’re still eating. And we still really, really love food.
In this podcast series, delivery-only kitchen company Taster rounds up some of their favourite food experts to chat about how they keep loving food when they can't leave their homes.
How are top chefs, restaurateurs and foodie influencers staying inspired when they’re stuck at home? We wanted to know, so we asked. Stay tuned for tasty tips and cheerful cooking chatter
Eating In with Felicity Spector
Our latest episode of #EatingIn is now live! Catch us in convo with esteemed UK food writer, @felicityspector. ⠀
We know what you’re thinking: eating (and then writing about it) sounds like a dream job. It wasn’t, however, the profession that Felicity — once an aspiring politician on her way to doing a PhD at Harvard — envisioned for herself. In fact, being “into food” wasn’t even really “a thing” when she was growing up in Birmingham. ⠀
Take-out Chinese was the closest she came to a restaurant experience as a child. Now, she’s reviewing the country’s best restaurants. Tune into #EatingIn to find out how Felicity got to where she is today.⠀
Eating In with A Pair of Dirty Pigs
Our #EatingIn episode with @apairofdirtypigs is here! In the world of food media where PR relationships = restaurant invites, it can be hard to sift through the BS and spot honest reviews. Tom and Warren tell host Sofia how they managed to maintain integrity as their audience grew, and the “free meal” invites started being sent their way.
Eating In with James Cochran
Host @sofiagreenacre's chat with British food star James Cochran is now live! Sit back, grab a snack and listen in.
James, owner of Islington’s @1251_twelve_fifty_one, has spent a lot of time thinking about the ambiance of restaurants, and how things might change when spots start to open up. If you're a food lover, this is probably something you’re thinking about too.
What kind of restaurants will you be running back to when the time comes?
Eating In with Ed Tan (@onehungryasian)
