Hoovering - Episode 61: Ella Tarn

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’s guest is the brilliant food stylist, Ella Tarn. She’s a food stylist so always behind the scenes and in front of the scenes making food look at beautiful as we all already know it tastes. I got to ask her all sorts of insider questions and I couldn’t have loved it more. And she made us a beautiful lunch. 

Everything written below in CAPITALS is a link to the relevant webpage.

I made the dark chocolate and raspberry vegan fridge cake from the MILDREDS COOKBOOK which I can’t publish of course but HERE is a similar-isa recipe I found online.
