    The Best Of Grilling

    The Best Of Grilling

He talks butchering sheep with Nadiya Hussain, lobotomies with the Hairy Bikers and Swedish feasts with Rachel Khoo. It's a Caribbean Christmas for Andi Oliver, and Marcus Wareing recalls his first meeting with Gordon Ramsay. Gok Wan describes one of his dinner parties, Tom Kerridge remembers getting his first Michelin star, and Paul Ainsworth reveals what he likes to eat after a night on the sauce. We also find out Simon's winner of our recipe challenge.

    Adam Richman

    Adam Richman

    Don't yuck my yum! So says the hugely charismatic food aficionado Adam Richman in conversation with Simon from New York. Adam is best known for the show Man V Food, in which he’d take on outlandish eating challenges in far flung-corners of the States. A self-educated food fanatic and trained sushi chef, he has kept a journal of every restaurant he’s eaten in since 1995. His passion for cooking in all its forms (not to mention football) shines as they discuss the very best (and worst) of American cuisine. He also comes up with a sumptuous barbecue recipe in our challenge.

    Rick Stein

    Rick Stein

    Our latest guest on Grilling is a true titan of the industry - at the vanguard of lending quality and credibility to the British food and restaurant industry. Rick Stein has become synonymous with laid-back cooking, seafood and, of course, Padstow. He opened his first restaurant in the Cornish fishing port in 1975, having initially failed as a nightclub impresario. He’s been a regular on our screens since the 80s, has broadened his restaurant horizons and written numerous best selling books. Here he tells Simon about fights on the quayside, cooking fillets full of bones in the early years, and what he played as his last song in his days as a DJ.


    As ever, we're giving a way a top-of-the-range Weber barbecue too. For your chance to win, head to Weber.com/grilling.

    Andi Oliver

    Andi Oliver

    It's a Boxing Day bonus episode of Grilling for you, as Simon is joined by the inimitable Andi Oliver. Andi has led an extraordinarily colourful life. A chef, restaurateur, musician and TV presenter, she grew up on RAF bases in Suffolk and Cyprus before moving to London at 17. It was there she met Neneh Cherry, with whom she took the stage in the band Rip Rig + Panic. She subsequently presented non-cooking shows like Badaas TV with none other than Ice-T - but has never lost her affinity for food. She tells Simon about hosting dinner parties as a kid, serving up honey chicken and rice for starving revellers at 2am, and reveals what's on her kitchen stereo when she's cooking. There are a couple of belting barbecue recipes for your delectation too.


    As always, we're giving away a premium Weber barbecue in this episode too. To enter, head to weber.com/gilling.

    Tom Kerridge

    Tom Kerridge

    How do you come to run the first pub in the world ever to have been awarded two Michelin stars? Well, it's certainly been quite the ride for Tom Kerridge. He and Simon discuss Tom the actor, hedonist, businessman, TV presenter, drinker, teetotaler, campaigner and plenty more besides - not least his extraordinary rise as a chef through a string of top kitchens. They also reflect upon the influence of the great Marco Pierre White upon both Tom and the British culinary landscape, and consider what needs to be done to save the hospitality industry in the face of the pandemic. We also find out which Kent seaside resort is home to his favourite hidden gem and put his barbecue skills to the test in our recipe challenge.


    As always, there's a premium Weber barbecue up for grabs too. For your chance to win, head to weber.com/grilling.

    Paul Ainsworth

    Paul Ainsworth

    What does a Michelin starred chef have after a night on the beers? Find out as Paul Ainsworth reveals all to Simon on this latest episode of Grilling. (Clue: not cavia.) Paul cut his teeth under the late Gary Rhodes before working for Gordon Ramsay and later Marcus Wareing. Then, in 2006, he and two friends opened a restaurant, which he and his wife Emma now own and run themselves. Paul Ainsworth at Number 6 in Padstow was awarded its star in 2013, and he also oversees local Italian favourite Rojano's In The Square and The Mariners pub in Rock. As well as finding out his aforementioned guilty late-night pleasure, we also discover what made Gary Rhodes's bread and butter pudding so darn fine, get a frightening glimpse into a Ramsay kitchen, and learn how to elevate a simple burger into something really rather special.


    As ever, we're giving away a premium Weber barbecue too. Listen in or head to weber.com/grilling to find out how you can win.
