    S9 Ep 22: David Lammy

    S9 Ep 22: David Lammy

    This week we welcome Tottenham-bred Labour MP David Lammy to Table Manners. It was a pleasure to zoom him in from across London and talk all about his 20 years of serving as a member of parliament for Tottenham, the Lammy review on BAME representation in the criminal justice system and the fact that Boris has not implemented enough of his 35 recommendations. He tells us all about his Guyanese parents; his mum's famous pepper pot & patties, coach trips to Skegness & his new book ’Tribes’. He’s currently on a strict Keto diet, but tells us all about his cheesecake obsession & his number 1 tipple being a rosé on ice!
    To top it all off, he wins us over with a beautiful rendition of Somewhere from West Side Story. David Lammy everyone! Enjoy!!x

    The Tables Have Turned with Zane Lowe

    The Tables Have Turned with Zane Lowe

    Here’s a little amuse-bouche for you - let’s call it a Friday treat. Today, my fourth record is out 'What’s Your Pleasure?' and to celebrate we did something a bit different. One of the best interviewers I know, Zane Lowe joins us for a special (and completely unorthodox) ‘Tables Have Turned’ episode and we talk all things music (& of course a bit about food). We’ll have Zane back for a proper dinner soon. In the meantime, enjoy this one and if you fancy, go and have a listen to my new record!

    S9 Ep 21: Emily Eavis

    S9 Ep 21: Emily Eavis

    If we can’t get to Glastonbury Festival, we thought we’d bring a little bit of Glastonbury to you.
    What an honour to have the Queen of Worthy farm, Emily Eavis on Table Manners on the week where Glasto would have been celebrating 50 years with all of us in the SUNNY fields.
    We delve right into Glastonbury food; how they choose the food stalls, specialities (the secret Goan Curry by West Holts), artist's private chefs, and of course mum has secured a Chicken Matzoh ball soup stand for next year.
    Emily tells us about growing up on the farm, how they’ve had to deal with the current pandemic and how she sings Moana songs in the festival office.
    As if this episode couldn’t get any better, Emily invites me back to perform next year, with mum in tow....well, we will see about that.
    Make sure to tune into the BBC coverage of Glastonbury highlights this weekend! Enjoy! (Side note - I'm overzealous and in awe in this episode so please excuse my fawning over this excellent woman!) X

    S9 Ep 20: Munroe Bergdorf

    S9 Ep 20: Munroe Bergdorf

    Today we have the incredible activist and model Munroe Bergdorf on Table Manners. We were so lucky to have one of the UK’s leading black trans queer voices on our podcast at this pivotal time, straight off her massive victory and reconciliation with L’Oreal after being dropped for speaking out about racism and white privilege three years ago. We find out how her name started off on the drag scene, her transition at 24, whilst also discussing forgiveness, progress and Octopus. Munroe tells us about the lockdown queer commune she’d been living in with Jessie's old time collaborator & mate Kate Moross and how she’s dreaming of sitting back in Nando’s. We discuss bad first dates and learn new facts about crustaceans from this surprise marine expert! Munroe, you inspire and educate us via social media every day and we loved spending the eve over Zoom with you....but I'm holding you to that Nicki Minaj impression beb! X

    S9 Ep 19: Joe Lycett

    This week we welcome the joyous Joe Lycett onto Table Manners. Cheering us up from his living room inBirmingham, the TV presenter and comedian talks to us all about how he became a comedian, his mum's faggots and mash, writing sitcoms in lockdown & his affinity for ‘stodge’. Formerly known as Hugo Boss (it's a long but excellent story), Joe cracks the cheesiest of jokes (courtesy of his big sister) and admits to having Eminem as his karaoke song. This was just what we needed, thank you Joe! X

My new rec to everyone!

Seriously my new favorite podcast. As a lover of food, libations and family, and someone who has worked in the service industry for decades, this podcast has it all. Thank y’all for being such a warm light in troubling times. Ordering the cookbook this week! Cheers!

A light through the dark times

I’ve been locked down alone in NYC since March, and this series has helped me through the Covid anxiety. Now it’s my source of levity throughout this reckoning. I love their relationship, and their guests have been 10/10. Keep it up, ladies!
