Who are the FoodTalk Awards finalists?

We run through our FoodTalk Awards finalists but also chat Press Juices, vending with Vendease and baking at Bakehouse at 124. In a week where a London cake baker made national news for being asked to do her job by a Royal couple, we are here to shout about the foodie news that really matters. An hour never seems to be enough for us these days. To kick us off, we ate some food…obviously. Ollie Lloyd picked the wrong week to be MIA, because we rattled through the FoodTalk Awards finalists...


Bread, jam, gin



Gin, grappa and good advice

Cosmo Caddy gets our presenters tipsy with his Still on the Move & Claire Brumby talks us through her food consultancy business. After a week of scary cold weather, we are ready to kick-start spring in the best possible way. We’ve got lots of booze to give us that warm fuzzy feeling and some great discussion to go with it. Our first guest seemed to be on a mission to get us stinking drunk, he succeeded too. Cosmo Caddy has founded Still On The Move – he has a unique vehicle which can...


Cooking for royalty & reading The Grocer

We met Emily Few Brown of Spook Catering, Stefan Cuomo from Macknades and Emma Wenbren, Food Trends Ediot at The Grocer This week has been snow joke…the white stuff has been falling and it’s caused disruption up and down the country. However, we are made of stronger stuff here at FoodTalk. Both our presenters and our guests fought their way through the blizzards to record this winter warmer for you. Our first guest provided us with a topic that we don’t cover all too much on the...


Great British Chefs Research 2018: Part 2

Tom & Jerry, Venus & Serena, Steak & Chips, Food & Talk – don’t you see? All the best things come in twos! That’s exactly why we couldn’t let there be just one special show focused around The Great British Chefs’ brilliant research. Last week’s podcast only just scratched the surface on some of the fascinating insight into themind and life of a UK foodie – so this week we’ve got some more for you. We also welcomed another FoodTalk favourite onto the show, following Carolyn Steel’s return...


Great British Chefs research 2018

Ollie Lloyd presents the Great British Chefs’ 2018 research with help from Carolyn Steel. Question: How many of you will love hearing this special FoodTalk podcast with research conducted by Great British Chefs? Answer: 97% of you (the other 3% accounts for all of the people who don’t know a good podcast when it hits them).


Designated driver delights

Becky Kean, co-founder of Nirvana Brewery, is joined by Alastair Jessel - founder of Taywell Ice Cream and advocate of food hubs. The famous Big Mac turned 50 this week but please, do us a favour, shun that rubbish and turn your attention to our tasty podcast instead. We can be your guilty pleasure instead. We kicked this week off by revisiting a subject that causes a bit of a stir between Sue, Guy and Ollie – why can nobody develop an alcohol-free beer that doesn’t taste like something...


Sous Vide sensations

We try out Sous Vide Tools, talk Heartier and get eco-friendly with The Planet Mark The deadline day in football may have passed now, but there’s still a limited amount of time available to sign yourselves up to The FoodTalk Awards before the entries close on February 16. Don’t dawdle anymore, apply now, apply here. On the awards night, you’ll be able to meet Sue, Guy and Ollie but, for now, you’ll have to be content with hearing them get stuck into some foodie chat. First up, we are...


Currying favour around the world

Eating curry with Lajina Masala and future gazing with Julie Jenson Bennett. Days don’t tend to get much better than National Pie Day, which we all enjoyed on Tuesday, but we reckon we’ve topped it already with this show. January has been cold, wet and miserable so far but we had some guests that put a smile on the faces of Sue Nelson, Guy Routledge and Ollie Lloyd. First-up, we were delighted to meet Lajina Leal from Lajina Masala. She makes sauces that are to die-for. Our...


Vegan delights and coconut creations

Rachel Hugh and Neil Potts introduce their Vurgers, while Jacob Thundil talks Cocofina. The other day it was announced that the UK would be ridded of plastic packaging within 25 years, and this makes us excited for a few reasons… 1) The whales from Blue Planet will be happy, yay. 2) We’ve met some amazing companies in the past who have been leading this fight. Yay for them too. Sian Sutherland of ‘A Plastic Planet’ is one of our anti-plastic friends – check back on her podcast here....


Collectiv foodie pleasures

Jeremy Hibbert-Garibaldi from CollectivFood joins to talk all things about foodie supply chains. In a week where Cauliflower Steaks have been the biggest headlines in the world of food, our presenters risked similar ridicule with a poor shot at a start of year quiz. Sue Nelson pitted Guy Routledge and Ollie Lloyd against each other, with neither covering themselves in glory. Much homework needed for next time. After that little venture failed, we decided to stick to what we know by...


FoodTalk 2017 - the best bits (part 1)

What a year 2017 has been for us! We have been incredibly lucky to meet some brilliant guests from all around the food and drink industry, from perfect producers to dazzling disruptors and intelligent influencers. As Christmas draws nearer, we have decided to play back our highlights from the last 12 months. One show won’t be enough, so we’ll have the same next week too. Sue Nelson has sat down with fellow presenters Guy Routledge and Ollie Lloyd to pick their favourites. Check the...


Scaling up your snack business

Tony Goodman talks 10 Acre, while Dan Pawson introduces Sea Chips and Mirela Sula champions woemn in the food industry


Food Matters Live 2017 part 2

Over the course of the next hour, you’ll hear from Bingham & Jones, Motion Nutrition, Simply Ice Cream, Skinny Brands and Cricke. We just knew that one hour of Food Matters Live highlights show wouldn’t be enough. There were so many fantastic companies at London Excel, so we’re back with the best of our second day of interviews. Sue Nelson and Guy Routledge had quite the mixed bag once again. Among other things, they ate crickets, and ice cream washed down with some low-calorie lager....


Food Matters Live 2017 special

As Christmas trees start springing up across the country – we’ve got a special show to get you in the festive mood. An early Christmas gift for them…rather than a couple of guests, Sue Nelson & Guy Routledge had two whole days of interviews at the Food Matters Live event at Excel recently. This will be the first of our two special shows. In this episode, we present our highlights from the first day of interviewing. Over the next hour, you’ll hear everything from a revolutionary water...


Getting saucy with biscotti

If you’re an English Cricket fan, you’re probably reading this through bleary and tired eyes. Which bright spark let Australia host the Ashes? Anyway, we’ve got something to go along with your coffee today. We aren’t sure whether Sue Nelson or Guy Routledge are cricket fans, but we’ll have a root around before next week. Controversially, we’ll start with our second guest fist. Why? It’s all to do with coffee. If you’re looking for something to dunk – look no further than Paul Rostand...


Jim Jamming your way to success

While some z-list celebrities, cash-light notable people, and Amir Khan head to an Australian jungle to eat crocodile testicles and Kangaroo anus for a couple of weeks, we are keeping our menus a bit classier. We had another fantastic podcast with great-tasting food for your enjoyment – much to the relief of Sue Nelson and Guy Routledge. Our first guest needs little introduction – you’ve probably seen them all over the major UK supermarket shelves already – JimJams are going up against...


Going nuts about South America

In a week where the big department stores started to release their much-hyped Christmas adverts, we had another podcast which was perfect to get people excited for the weekend – with two products that you may not have discovered just yet. Sue Nelson and Guy Routledge snuck away almost instantly from the studio, and seemed to be booking flight tickets for South America. That’ll be because they enjoyed learning all about the continent thanks to Tom Spillane at Andean Sol – they’ve recently...


FoodTalk hits the road

Just like interest rates aren’t fixed, The FoodTalk Show isn’t restricted to just the four walls of our Euston Tower studio. Our presenters are frequent travellers and this week you get to hear what they get up to. Sue Nelson met two fantastic individuals – both from different backgrounds and both with a different story to tell. First up, in leafy Surrey, Sue arrived at the door of Pinky Lilani. She’s an author, motivational speaker, food expert, women’s advocate and even holds an OBE....


Chocolate & cheese perfection

If you were to poll the nation on their favourite foods we’re pretty sure that chocolate and cheese would both feature somewhere – probably quite highly – in the top 10. As a result, we were wonderfully lucky to have two businesses at the top of their trade in cheese and chocolate. Guy Routledge from The Food Rush chose the right date to return from a lengthy holiday, while there was nowhere else that Sue Nelson would rather be. Now, if you’re a cheese fan, you need to visit La...
