    A Mince Pie Review with the Pie King and the Mince Pie Queen

    "It's like Santa's shaking you."

    In this special preview episode to Season 2, we chat all things mince pie!

    Ever wondered what one is? Who makes the best? How to make better ones at home?

    Host Jennifer Earle - a food innovation consultant and London food tour guide - sits down with the Pie King, Chef Calum Franklin, author of The Pie Room, and award-winning food writer and mince pie reviewer, Felicity Cloake. They try 12 of 2022's mince pies from a selection of London's best bakeries and grocers.

    All the links and details are at www.bit.ly/mincepies2022

    Some of the mince pies are available anywhere in the UK and the link above includes a list of others that are probably worth checking out.

    What's coming next:

    The rest of Season 2 will be recorded and released in 2023. Expect chats about croissants, Jewish bakes, Middle Eastern treats, bread, biscuits and more, with Jen and a series of talented and knowledgeable guests.

    The Food We Shouldn't Throw Away

    The Food We Shouldn't Throw Away

    Did you know in 2018 UK households threw away the equivalent of 1 million loaves of bread A DAY?

    And - after briefly going down in April 2020 - that number may even be worse now.

    This week I sit down with Chloe Stewart who is so concerned about how much edible food is wasted that seven years ago she set out to figure out how to save some of it, by turning it into something more appealing.

    Nibsetc currently make DELICIOUS granola made from the pulp of cider apples, but there are more products in the pipeline using other "byproducts" from food manufacturing.

    We discuss the current state of things, plus apps, schemes, simple tricks and great restaurants who will all help you to be part of a system that throws less edible food into landfill.

    I also chat about one of the things I found challenging when I worked as a Food Buyer for a major supermarket.

    I hope you enjoy!

    You can see the full list of all of the things we recommend trying here:

    https://thenextdeliciousthing.com/2022/07/27/15-easy-ways-to-reduce-food-waste-in-london/

    The businesses with "delicious things to try" this week are:

    Troy's Grocery
    and
    Leila's Shop

    About this week's foodie guest:

    Chloë Stewart has lived in the UK, Hong Kong, the US and Switzerland and is on a mission to turn food byproducts into delicious new foods. She founded Nibsetc and you can find her granola online and at Borough Market on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Chris Guillebeau ,

The best delicious podcast

Jennifer Earle brings passion and insight to the culinary world of London chocolate! (And much more.) As a faraway listener, I felt transported to her favorite shops and bakeries. If only we could find a way to airdrop the actual chocolate…
