Great podcast, insightful interviews and delicious food

A friend of mine turned me onto the podcast, and I am glad that she did. I was vaguely familiar with the host and enjoy his critics of restaurants- playful, revealing, and informed. The podcast offers a great conversation over the mouth watering descriptions of the food. I can’t wait for the next season, hurry back Jay!

Joy delicious ,

Rayner with Marsan

Born in Herne Hill, London where Jay lives, I now live in California and listening to this brilliant podcast allows me to continue to indulge in the vibrant London restaurant scene which I miss. We’re able to keep up with the motherland. Jay is a fantastic interviewer and his guests are getting better & better. Just loved listening to Eddie Marsan on the road home from Tahoe & looking forward to Kathy Burke. Thank you Mr Rayner & team it’s always a massive pleasure
