If you’re missing having friends over for dinner, this podcast, hosted by singer Jessie Ware and her mum Lennie, might just be the next best thing. They invite celebs (guests include Kylie, ‘Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski and UK MP Jess Phillips) over to Lennie’s for dinner, they have a good old chat and sometimes Jessie’s brother gets roped in to make pudding (David Schwimmer slags off his banana bread in one episode). It’s the podcast equivalent of a juicy novel. Isabelle Aron
Okay, so it’s dinner time. You’re in charge. You’ve got the ingredients in and you’ve laid them all out. But cooking alone can feel a little lonely, right? One surefire way to get yourself some artificial (and generally pretty cultured) kitchen company is to whack on a podcast. And since you’ll want to be semi-focused on the cooking, it may help if they’re talking about food.
Luckily, there are many funny and fascinating series well up to the job – and we’ve sorted through them all to come up with this list of the very best podcasts that are all about food, glorious food. Just don’t get so wrapped up in what they’re saying that you leave that garlic on the hob way past ‘golden’.
