Sue Nelson and Jane Peyton discuss all things food and drink with experts and producers from around the UK.
MEATY BEEFY BRITISH SNACKS
Susie and AJ go paleo and tuck into pork scratchings and beef jerky. Founders Nick Coleman of Snaffling Pig and Will Yates of Billy Franks explain how they make the traditional high protein meaty snacks and discover that pork scratchings are quite possibly the oldest snack on earth.
THE MASTERCHEF EDITION
Philli Armitage-Mattin is a Masterchef finalist and famous for her love of Asian flavours. She invited Susie and AJ to her new pop up venture at the Intercontinental in London's poshest address, Park Lane, right in the middle of Mayfair. We also revisit Susie's interview with the lovely Anna Haugh of Myrtle restaurant in Chelsea who is about to take over from Monica Galetti on MasterChef: The Professionals.
CHILD LABOUR IN THE CHOCOLATE INDUSTRY
Susie and AJ are somewhat shocked by the contents of the programme this week and you might find it unsettling too. Ben Greensmith of Tony's Chocolonely uncovers the dreadful world of child slave labour in the chocolate industry and why we should be asking some difficult questions of the major chocolate brands in the UK.
BEING THE ’GOOD GUY’ IS GOOD BUSINESS
Susie and AJ don't really know what a B Corp is, but they know that more and more consumers want to know where their food comes from and that it is being sourced and made responsibly. Enter Guy Tullberg of Tracklements and Jonathan Parker of Foodari who can both demonstrate why sustainability and good ethical practices make good business sense.
IS THE MICROWAVE A RELIC FROM THE 1970’S?
Is the microwave a relic from the 1970s or can it still be used to create a nutritious meal for the whole family? Nicci Clark of Re:Nourish explains to Susie and AJ how she has embraced the much maligned 'convenience' sector to create one of the most convenient products yet invented.
CAN EXPERIENCE MAKE YOUR BRAND GROW?
You might have a fabulous brand, a great venue or the best tasting product in the world, but how do you cut through the social media noise to get heard and be seen? AJ and Jon Mills explain to Susie the use of 'experiential' marketing and how it helps to win customers and build a community of ambassadors.
