Off Menu

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

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

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 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?

No spoilers.

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.
