Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.This week I’m talking-to the mega-lovely, wonder-chef Dave Coulson off of The Great British Menu. We met in his glorious restaurant in Newcastle called Peace and Loaf. I love bread and I hate wars, so I knew I’d have a great time. I brought him a disguising durian fruit which caused a stir and a stink in the kitchen - fun to be the one bringing some drama. And he made me something incredible out of the bits of pigs that are usually destined for the dustbin. He’s so fun and honest about what his local Michelin star inspector looks like and all the acute cuisine he feeds his son (not). This one was so fun and exciting to record. We met in a working kitchen, so there’s some background noise, but who cares, ey. Honourable MentionsClick HERE for tickets on 6th of October to HOOVERING LIVE at the MANCHESTER PODCAST FESTIVAL, Union Theatre at 1.30pmIf you’re near NEWCASTLE come to the FUNDRAISER I’m doing on 20th Sept for Rape Crisis Tyneside & NorthumberlandAnd if you’re London based, click on the name for links to my HONERS CLUB new material nights.If you’re in Newcastle, you have to visit the exquisite PEACE AND LOAF the restaurant and if it’s high end curry you’re in to then tap up SACHINS - both well worth a visit please.And of course there’s always the brilliant GREAT BRITISH MENU on the mighty iplayer. OH, AndIf you have got a any spare dosh to give a month I’m on this great site called Patreon where I exchange for rewards including exclusive content for your hard earned cash which means I can keep doing and improving the podcast.

Hoovering – Episode 13: Stephen Bailey

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering. This week I’m joined by comedian who is none other than Zoe Ball’s new Agony Uncle on Sunday mornings on ITV – Stephen Bailey. You can catch him at the Soho Theatre if you’re London based, the first weekend in May.  I took Stephen for dinner in a particularly ‘characterful’ part of Llanelli, in Wales. We talk about those days where you’re like a bottomless pit on the food front; mental spinning instructors; fussiness; fasting and eating on first dates. All that, and it’s somehow quite a short episode.

Hoovering – Episode 12: Hal Branson

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering. This week I’m joined by comedian with a self-confessed ‘absolute-wanker-level’ love of all things food related – Hal Branson. He brings me a huge rucksack full of incredible treats which we plough through like it’s Christmas, whilst, to both of our surprise, opening our hearts right up about binging, mental health and some pretty ripe stuff about our parents. Recipes Butternut Squash, aubergine and red lentil sambhar from ‘Fresh India’ by Meera Sodha. I’ve since bought it because it’s brilliant but if you’re really strapped and want this recipe pop me an email and I’ll send you a picture of it. And here’s a link to the totally gorgeous pear, rye and cardamom cake which Hal made, via Ruby Tandoh. Prettily easy made vegan using flax eggs I reckon and maybe a sweetened and spiced cashew cheese instead of the butter? But it was delicious even without the butter – so good. Honorable Mentions There are so many of these this week! The vegan wotsits are called Hippeas and you can defo get them in Sainsbury’s and Boots. The swanky coffee he brought was from  Ouseborn. The filmore and union pistachio and chocolate log thing was totally sublime, beyond any health food treat I’d ever found. Hal raves about a restaurant in Newcastle called ‘Al Bayak‘ or ‘The Bake’ and his friend’s brewing company Northern Alchemy sounds pretty wicked too. And if you’re interest was peaked by the prospect of wine that looks like piss but hasn’t any chemicals in then look up Naked Wines.

Hoovering – Episode 11: John Gregory-Smith

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering. This week I’m joined by an actual chef – one from telly AND more importantly, real life: John Gregory-Smith. He makes me a glorious shakshuka and I make him a deeply repulsive vegan chocolate mousse which he is hilariously charming about- it was inedible. And I say that as someone who, if you’re a regular listener will know, once sucked port out of a 2nd hand rug. Recipes For John’s shaksuka – you’ll have to listen, and carefully, with a pen and a pausing finger ready. For my vegan chocolate mousse lick but be warned, unless you’re a HUGE mousse and multiple-types-of-fat-in-your-mouth-at-once fan, I’d steer clear. Honourable Mentions John’s latest book is Orange Blossom & Honey and his first book, which he also mentioned was Mighty Spice The insane Taiwanese restaurant in Hong Kong that’s coming to London summer of 2018 is Din Tai Fung The hot sauce he mentions being totally filthy and addictive from his cupboard was THIS one and the mucky Turkish sausage was sujuk “The wankiest of all roses” was Whispering Angel And the local supermarket I don’t think I could live without was the Turkish Food Centre, which has branches all over south London.

We talk about deep-cheese-love as well as revealing ‘the terrible mystery of Anne’.

And those sugar-free poached pears. Tip: use nicer wine and probably, unless it’s medically required, add some fucking sugar mate Honourable Mentions Here’s the link to oddbox the brilliant little company delivering beautiful wonky veg to all round south London (with views and waiting lists for expanding) Woah!

In this episode I’m joined by the glorious Desiree Burch. She’s playing at the Soho Theatre in London, no less, from 7th-12th May 2018. We have a lot of noisy fun in this conversation: we beat the verbal shit out of lavender. I learn that Texans like their tea sweeter than a bee’s bum and Desiree’s housemate goes for a burrito and gets a “slap in the face”. __ Recipes Here’s the recipe for the Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall coconut, chilli squash I made. The rice I can’t find online but is in his amazing book ‘Three Good Things’. And Tammy’s sorrel and hibiscus jam will have to, I’m afraid, remain a secret. __ Honorable mentions  Maurepas Foods did close in New Orleans in 2015 but does now appear to be in Hawaii if you’re passing.

What does Carl miss eating from the animal-product-world, if anything? You will NEVER guess. __ Recipes Carl talks us really carefully through how he made his seitan but here’s a recipe that I intend to try. And here’s one for the courgette chocolate (vegan) cupcakes which I swear were lighter and more cakey last time I made them so who knows. Just don’t rush them. __ Honorable mentions  I can’t wait to check out The Gate restaurants which it looks like there’s a few of now. The Chinese restaurant I took Mikey to for that mouth-blowing birthday a few years back was called A Wong and here’s what I wrote about it after we went.
