Not so dry January
Start the year as you mean to go on from Masterchef winner to Darjeeling Express
So, the first month of 2019 is nearly over – how are your New Year’s resolutions getting on? Or should we not mention those?
Don’t worry if the treadmill is already gathering dust, because we’ve got an easy and fun way to keep your foodie knowledge in great shape. The FoodTalk Show is our weekly podcast that profiles the most exciting stories in the world of food and drink. January’s guest list has got the year off to a cracking start, so why not catch up on the month’s fabulous shows today?
In our 3 January episode, co-presenter Ollie Lloyd spelled out his predictions for the foodie trends that will be setting kitchens alight in 2019. Will his forecast prove spot-on or wide of the mark? Only time will tell…
We also received a very exciting visit from Asma Khan of Darjeeling Express in Soho’s Kingly Court. Soon to feature in Netflix’s ‘Chef Table’, she had some fascinating insights to share about her cooking and her roots.

Our January 17 show would have been tough listening for anyone still sticking to the lettuce, as Gordon Davidson told us about the incredible Morocco Gold olive oil. Ross Forder also popped in to share the story of Halo Burger, which is the world’s first fast-food joint dedicated to serving only the ‘bleeding’ vegan Beyond Burger.
If you’re a fan of Masterchef, you won’t want to miss our January 24 episode, in which 2016 winner Jane Devonshire joined us in the studio to talk about how her life has changed since lifting the trophy. We also chatted to Jamie Burrows, who created Vertical Future to supply fresh, sustainable produce using agri-technology.
