Although she’s originally from the Isle of Man, Katie Callin has never made the most traditionally Manx of all foods: the bonnag - a soda raised baked good with links to the nation’s pre-industrial past, and to its folklore too.

4: Lockdown: Rebecca

4/12/2020
In these strange times I’ve been thinking about food almost constantly. Unable to go out to eat (or go out much at all), food dominates my waking life even more than normal. Like many people on the internet, I’ve started using the solid blocks of time I have at home to start learning to bake sourdough, and I’ve been thinking a lot about why I’m so drawn to this and why I find it so absorbing. Via the medium of voicenotes, I asked my friend Rebecca Spaven, a professional baker, to consider...

I met chef Marie Mitchell in mid 2017, when I booked her as a guest on another podcast I was producing, in honour of the supper club she was running with her parents, Pop's Kitchen, and was blown away by her charm, food ethics (she takes the sourcing of her ingredients very seriously) and most of all her incredible cooking. She bakes a lemon drizzle cake at her East London flat and talks about the leap of faith it took to start to cook professionally, London Caribbean identity, and why her...
