    Marco Pierre White

    Marco Pierre White

    It's an absolute culinary titan on our latest episode of Grilling, as Marco Pierre White joins Simon to discuss his career - and prepare seared lamb chops and salmon a la plancha with ketchup vinaigrette in real life! Lucky Simon ...
    Arguably the finest chef the UK has ever produced, Marco walks us through his career in intoxicating style, from his humble beginnings in Leeds to spearheading the restaurant revolution on these shores in the late 80s and beyond. He stepped away from the kitchen at 38, but did more in his relatively short stint in professional kitchens than most dream of achieving in a lifetime, 
    You can watch him prepare his surf and turf dish on a Weber Genesis barbecue at weber.com/grilling - along with recipes by Yotam Ottolenghi, Andi Oliver and John Torode.

    John Torode

    John Torode

    Who better to invite to prepare a dish on a Weber Genesis barbecue than John Torode? The loveable Aussie joins Simon to discuss his culinary upbringing in his homeland, his disastrous first restaurant, why he made the move to the UK, working for the visionary entrepreneur Terence Conran, and, of course, the joys of Masterchef.
    We then send him into the garden to grill a whole wild sea bass with seaweed and lemon butter and potatoes, which you can watch in full HERE

    Andi Oliver (Part 2)

    Andi Oliver (Part 2)

    It's a welcome return to the podcast for Andi Oliver, who not only joined Simon in a beautiful West London home for a chat - but also to cook her delicious bush tea brined tamarind molasses barbecue chicken on a Weber Genesis Barbecue. For that's what we're asking our guests to do in this latest season of Grilling - and you can watch the video HERE, as well as the one with our previous guest, Yotam Ottolenghi.
     
    Among the subjects up for discussion with Andi are her culinary heritage, growing up in the RAF, the origins of jerk chicken, and what she and her best pal Neneh Cherry would make for Simon if he ever popped round for dinner.

    Yotam Ottolenghi

    Yotam Ottolenghi

    Welcome to the brand new season of Grilling in association with Weber Barbecues - the podcast in which Simon Rimmer speaks to the world's best chefs about their passion for food, cooking, and the hospitality business. And, in an exciting change from our previous series, we're not getting our guests to talk about what they'd make on a Weber Grill - but actually do it.
    First up is Yotam Ottolenghi. Born in Israel, Yotam is often credited with popularising Middle Easter cuisine, though he's far too humble to accept that claim. We discuss his journey from Jerusalem to London restaurateur, via a sleazy Amsterdam hotel.
    And you can watch him prepare his beautiful hasselback beetroot with lime leaf butter on a Genesis barbecue here, so you can impress your friends when they come round for a cook-up at the weekend ...

    Monica Galetti

    Monica Galetti

    Born in Samoa, raised in New Zealand, and now firmly established as one of our most highly regarded chefs, Monica Galetti is supremely humble, but clearly fantastically gifted in the kitchen. Here she tells Simon about Desert Island Discs, barbecues on Polynesian beaches, representing Oceania in cookery competitions all over the world, getting her first job in the UK with Michel Roux Jr, and juggling the considerable challenges motherhood with the pressures of running of her first restaurant. We love her!

    Bill Granger

    Bill Granger

    When one considers global Australian icons, many spring to mind - think Kylie Minogue, Guy Pearce, Peter Carey, Shane Warne, Elle Macpherson and, of course, Bouncer - but chef Bill Granger certainly belongs on any such list. A self-taught cook, like Simon, Bill now has a restaurant empire that spans globe, and is also a hugely popular face on our television screens. Here he reveals all about his culinary journey, which is spookily similar to our Simon's. It's a lovely sharing of yarns from the glorious industry that is hospitality, which we very much hope you enjoy
