Hoovering - Episode 43: Emma Sturgess

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 professional eater, food writer and competition judge EMMA STURGESS who makes us an extremely sexy and exciting breakfast. We debate the great ‘olive oil burning temperature’ questions and yes of course I regret being so naturally disgusting that at one point I start talking about how much just enjoyed a burp. Haha. 


Both from Nigella, first of all WHITE MISO HUMMUS and her accidentally vegan LEMON TENDERCAKE WITH BLUEBERRY COMPOTE

Honourable Mentions


Pro v Punter for OLIVE MAGAZINE

TEBAY and GLOUCESTER services 

DAN LEPARDS SHORT & SWEET the best baking book I’ve ever used, pre-veganism. I didn’t make a note of all the books she mentioned because I’m only human. But if you’re looking for tips, she IS the woman to ask - tweet her! 

HERE is a link to the cookery school of Darina Allen (the Irish Delia, shh) 

Emma mentioned that PETER GORDON, almost uniquely, writes his own books 

She called OTTOLENGHI a good man for crediting the chefs who work for him and who do create ‘his’ recipes 

And this is what comes up if you google SCANDELICIOUS (relax, it’s a restaurant) 

Last but not least, if you’re not following BOB MORTIMER on Twitter, you’re missing out. 

OH, And
