Rosie Jones episode giving me the giggles today, wbu huns
This is another reminder that I need to listen to this podcast.
Shall I just dive in at the first episode or did it take a while to find its feet?
Is it about food?
seem to remember it was good from the off, just pick some guests that you’re into I suppose
they’ve done a cross over with Films To Be Buried With
good from the off I think. it feels a bit tired generally these days I think but still really good sometimes depending on the guest and the rapport.
I remember really loving the Tom Kerridge one for some reason
they’ve done a couple of end of year best of type episodes so might be worth trying one of those first
My recommend list:
Paul F Tompkins
Generally enjoy them all, but the above had had repeated listens and many laughs.
Joe Thomas was insane
Winkleman was quite a surprising one.
I don’t bother with most of the chef and food writer ones but the Grace Dent one was brilliant.
Romesh Ranganathans was a good un too. Wonderful payoff.
I looked like a total weirdo laughing out loud to that one while walking the dogs
That shaman story…
I really liked the Tom Kerridge one, both sides seemed to be having a great time on it.
It’s just the matter-of-fact ness of it, standard business. Classic
Favourite Off Menu stories?
Ivo Graham - Richard Ayoade
Sue Perkins - shaman
Tom Allen - holiday with middle aged couple
I just pick them out at random based on guests I like
I enjoyed David O’Doherty’s main course being ‘something I made once and can’t remember how I did it’
The Richard Ayoade story is a belter but the Joe Thomas one is top tier for me.
There is also a google map out there fyi.
One of the first places on my post covid hit list is Shack-Fuyu for the Kinako French Toast.
