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...

Getting brands on the dining Tabl

2018 is here and we are kicking it off in style. Last year will be difficult to match in terms of cracking content but we gladly accepted the challenge with a jam packed show to kick us off for 2018. There wasn’t a Turkey, chocolate or block of cheese in-sight for Sue Neslon and Guy Routledge and Ollie Lloyd from Great British Chefs. First up, we welcomed somebody who can help you with the January blues. Kimberly Hurd runs the brilliant Tabl website. It’s an online platform for...

FoodTalk 2017 - the best bits (part 2)

One hour wasn’t enough to run through the highlights for the past 12 months, so here is another special show for your enjoyment. We hope you’ve enjoyed Christmas - here’s one last present for you…catch the likes of Pinky Lilani, Willie Harcourt-Cooze, Dalston Cola, Emily Crisp, Toast Ale, Brindisa and Moma. We’ll be back to our normal format next week.

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...

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...

Willie wonders for a happy tummy

Although we didn’t know it before going on-air, we celebrated International Gin & Tonic Day (the best day, ever) with a show full of amazing goodies. Sue Nelson and Ollie Lloyd love this job. First up, we had one of our favourite chocolate producers. If you saw his Channel 4 documentary on his story, you will have seen that Willie Harcourt-Cooze knows his chocolate inside out. This is demonstrated perfectly through his Willie’s Cacao range. Great stuff. The chocolate put us in a bit of a...

Foraging For a Food Fix

As part of the nation geared up to get their chops around a new gut-busting KFC burger, Sue Nelson and Ollie Lloyd were far more excited with the guests in front of them in the new FoodTalk studio. With Guy Routledge on holiday, Sue and Ollie were quite relieved to find they had an extra portion of beetroot ketchup to try. How sly of them. Being sly is the nature of the game for a Foraging Fox though. Frankie Fox told us all about the story behind her award-winning products. Taking a...

Getting smart with food

That classic British conversation topic is back: “Aren’t those nights starting to draw in?” Don’t worry though, we had a show that made Sue Nelson and Guy Routledge excited about that cosy winter feeling. The first of our winter warmers arrived in the form of some fantastic soup, a soup that you will have heard of. John Stapleton was part of the team that founded the New Covent Garden Soup Company and he turned it into the household name that it is today. He’s now turning his hand to baby...

Holla at the plastic plonkers

After two weeks of superb specials from the Speciality Show, FoodTalk returned to its trusted and tested format in our comfy studio. Sue Nelson and Guy Routledge had been getting withdrawal symptoms, so it was good to be back. To get us back into the swing of things, we had a topic which certainly got the debate flowing. Staggeringly, by 2050, the weight of plastic in the oceans will outweigh that of fish. Sian Sutherland is determined to turn the tide – she founded the ‘A Plastic Planet’...

There are always a few butterflies when you try something new for the first time. A Rhubarb & Basil soda certainly falls into that category. We didn’t need to worry when we tried Kitsch’s products – we also enjoyed the cucumber & fennel offering. The drinks were amazingly refreshing and Craig Johnston has every reason to feel proud. Don’t let these pass you by! Get your hands on these tasty offering by listening to the podcast and visiting the website.

Ninas Popcorn

We were a bit worried when we saw Ninas – we thought they might be similar to a lot of brands at the Speciality Show, but just one bite proved us wrong. Chirag Karia came to our pod armed with his naturally nutricious superfood popcorn. It’s all plant-based and they’ve been experimenting with some fantastic flavours – have you ever had a popcorn that left a sizzling taste on the tongue? If you’re intrigued (you should be), you need to find out more by heading to their website and...

Kold Group

When you are exhibiting at a trade show for three days, it’s handy to have a tasty alcoholic exhibitor in close proximity. Luckily, we had exactly that with Kold Group at the Speciality Show. They own two premium alcoholic drink brands; Kold Cocktails and Kalosa Natural Spritz. Both are all-natural drinks that are crafted using only the finest ingredients – they taste pretty damn fine too. Hear all about the journey that Tori Sotiropoulos has undertaken by listening to the podcast and...
