Hoovering - Episode 35: Rachel Riley

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 my guest is only Countdown mega-brains and former superstar of Strictly… RACHEL RILEY. We’re talking living in an ex-brothel, overcoming mega-health issues. And guess which animal’s willy she’s seen?! 


Rachel made lots of lovely fresh salads and smoked humous from Riverford as well as the creamiest guacamole, ever. And I made a pinto bean dip - which I’ll take photo graphs of the recipe and add them to the Facebook post for this podcast which you and click to get to HERE.
