    EP028 - Z is for "We Made it!"

    EP028 - Z is for "We Made it!"

    We finally got there, once round the horn! It only took us a few years but we got there in the end. In this episode we look back on what we enjoyed over the summer, our favourite cookbooks, the "fake" food revolution, and more.

    EP027 - Y is for YYZ! (Or...Surrender pronto or we'll level Toronto!)

    EP027 - Y is for YYZ! (Or...Surrender pronto or we'll level Toronto!)

    The "lost episode" episode. We re-recorded our Toronto episode because the city needs an episode to itself. One of the most diverse cities on earth, Toronto's food scene is unbelievable.

    EP026 - W is for WHISK(E)Y! (Or...Does whiskey count as beer?)

    EP026 - W is for WHISK(E)Y! (Or...Does whiskey count as beer?)

    We barely scratch the surface of this complex and fascinating subject but thanks to special guest Chris Ratcliffe (and Will's educated enthusiasm)we unlock a few of its secrets. Like why *is* it spelled differently in different regions? How do you pick a whiskey you'll enjoy? Why is Japanese whisky running out?

    EP025 - V is for VINEGAR! (Or...remind me to get my my brain flushed out with vinegar.)

    EP025 - V is for VINEGAR! (Or...remind me to get my my brain flushed out with vinegar.)

    Vinegar. On the face of it, not the most appetising of subjects but there's a lot to love about this ancient potion. So many uses, so many varietals...but is Will wrong to not like malt vinegar? Alex thinks so but do you? Listen in for that and much more.

    EP024 - U is for UMAMI! (Or...Don't scoop me gelato unless it's got umami.)

    Umami. The "latest" taste to be discovered and codified but one that we just couldn't live without. Weaponised as a way to beat poor nutrition, instead it was vilified in the West. A lively and sometimes controversial debate in this episode - join in!

This is how fun this show is:

Just finished listening to the Peanut Butter episode. Here’s how much I like this show: I’m deathly allergic to peanuts and STILL listened to this! Alex and Will have great chemistry and their content is a great mix of banter, food history and discussions you can use to discover something new for your palate. Just not peanuts for me, I’m afraid. I’m a Layovers listener and still love the “L” episode most. Keep cooking guys!
