Love is all around
We’ve fallen for some gorgeous new gastronomic discoveries during Valentine month. February is the month of love and Cupid has certainly been busy in the FoodTalk Show studio, introducing our hosts to a tempting array of new foodie flames.

This month Sue, Ollie and Holly have fallen for Humble Warrior, a range of plant-based soft drinks aimed at health-conscious adults, while Luhv Drinks revealed how they offer TLC for the skin, heart and mind. You can discover the attraction for yourself by listening to the 6 February show, which also features the amazing Seaweed & Co.
We explored the long love affair between food and the written word on the 13 February episode, with the help of award-winning food writer Zeren Wilson and food historian Sam Bilton. Food has always enjoyed a colourful past, as Paul Collins from natural food colouring manufacturer Exberry explained.
When you’re in the mood for a particular dish, it can be hard to find restaurant reviews that will touch on your favourite flavour. That’s why the new app Eaten is taking the guesswork out of gastronomy by enabling people to review dishes, rather than eateries. You can get the lowdown by tuning into our 20 February show, during which you’ll also meet Young Foodies. This business hub and community helps start-ups to scale up in the world of fast-moving consumer goods.
Finally, during the 27 February show, we raised a glass to the latest trends in tipples with help from Drink Warehouse and Pollen – the latter is taking CBD products one step further by incorporating them into cocktails and gummies.
Food waste is still a massive problem, which is why the team fell in love with Waste Knot, who connect chefs with farmers who have perfectly good surplus fruit and vegetables to sell.
All in all, it’s been another great month of foodie passion here at the FoodTalk Show!
