Hoovering - Episode 19: Sophie Medlin

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.This week I’m talking to an actual dietitian. Real life eating expert, Sophie Medlin. We have a picnic in a classroom at KCL, where she lectures. We eat loads, while I learn loads: this is a myth-buster-episode-extraordinaire. From the importance of breakfast to some ironically cruel behaviour from vegans. Honourable MentionsHere’s a link to the Kings College London Nutrition and Dietetics Department, seeing as Sophie waved the flag pretty hard for that as a potential career. And here’s the Guardian article by the magic Grace Dent about the perils of being veganish. Recipes I made Hugh Fernley-Whatsit’s carrots with almonds and cumin. I’ve found the recipe online here, but in the one I used (from the book: Three Good Things) there was a bonus tip if you’re eating this cold to add segments of orange flesh if you wanted. And I had one in, so I did. And the vegan potato salad I brought was from a wicked blog called The Veg Space. I didn’t have any cress to lob all over it and that was fine. Also - it lasted for AGES. OH, AndIf you’ve got any few cashish, I’m on a brilliant site called Patreon where I exchange for rewards including exclusive content for a monthly droplet of your hard earned wedge.

Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.This week I’m talking to brainy poppet, Pierre Novellie: Comedian and host of ‘My Favourite Podcast.’ He teaches me what a ‘braai master’ is, while we eat my accidentally ‘crumbed’ vegan burgers. We spend most of this conversation getting filthy-honest about binging and the agony of choice, whilst also really really making each other laugh. Honourable MentionsThis is what Iceland ‘No Bull Burgers’ look like and my God, they were AMAZING. I’ve since fed them to various carnists who’ve all loved them. That film I watched on Netflix and part way through realised was probably utter bollocks was called ‘What the Health’Recipes Here’s the website where I found the vegan ‘beef’ burgers which totally fell apart but tasted really, really good. OH, AndIf you’ve got a spare few dollars a month I’m on a brilliant site called Patreon where I exchange for rewards including exclusive content for your hard earned cash which means I can keep doing and improving the podcast.

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.This week I’m in Bristol, in the home of contestant from the last series of Masterchef, Zaleha Olpin. I AM SO LUCKY. Originally from Malaysia she’s lived all over the world and her cooking is a thing of absolute gorgeousness. Her departure from Masterchef was a thing of slight turmoil which Zaleha is disarmingly gracious about but you’ll hear me getting pissed off on her behalf. We go into depth about Malay food and there’s an excellently punchy expose about Zaleha’s youngest daughter’s time as a vegetarian. My mouth and brains both learn so much over the course of this conversation, I feel totally spoilt and honoured by the end of it.Honourable MentionIf you’re based in the UK check out Zaleha’s supper clubs The Malaysia Kitchen UK OH, AndIf you’ve got a spare few dollars a month I’m on a brilliant site called Patreon where I exchange for rewards including exclusive content for your hard earned cash which means I can keep doing and improving the podcast.

He tells us about the brilliant thing some house-movers once found in his designer oven. We all learn the phrase “a friend of soy” and he learned something which you would never guess at school. We touch on the magical world of private catering and his answer to one of my questions goes 100% gornographic. All that and we make a little time for some ‘fact-shaming’. HONORABLE MENTIONSAdam's stunning book is called 'This Is Going To Hurt' - grab it now.Our lunch was from Chiwsick's brilliant Saigon Saigon.

Perhaps learn the most interesting thing about apples EVER? No. Then sate yourself with the fact that potentially, George’s original inspiration and mentor – was a cannibal. Maybe. And his answer to my final question was VERY surprising.

There are some shout outs to Cariad’s very own 1950s wife Ben and hell hath no fury compared to her absolute distain for avocados. She gives us so many hot tips. And listen to the end for some bonus cameos from my housemates. Honourable MentionsDoughnut Time UK is where the beasts were from. And Cariad’s favourite jam is Single Variety. She also mentions Victoria Bakery in High Barnet.  The pub she talks about, I believe as the Scotsman in Whitstable is this place, The Sportmen.

You can catch him at the Soho Theatre if you’re London based, the first weekend in May. I took Stephen for dinner in a particularly ‘characterful’ part of Llanelli, in Wales.

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.This week I’m joined by comedian with a self-confessed ‘absolute-wanker-level’ love of all things food related – Hal Branson. He brings me a huge rucksack full of incredible treats which we plough through like it’s Christmas, whilst, to both of our surprise, opening our hearts right up about binging, mental health and some pretty ripe stuff about our parents.RecipesButternut Squash, aubergine and red lentil sambhar from ‘Fresh India’ by Meera Sodha. I’ve since bought it because it’s brilliant but if you’re really strapped and want this recipe pop me an email and I’ll send you a picture of it. And here’s a link to the totally gorgeous pear, rye and cardamom cake which Hal made, via Ruby Tandoh. Prettily easy made vegan using flax eggs I reckon and maybe a sweetened and spiced cashew cheese instead of the butter? But it was delicious even without the butter – so good.Honorable MentionsThere are so many of these this week! The vegan wotsits are called Hippeas and you can defo get them in Sainsbury’s and Boots. The swanky coffee he brought was from  Ouseborn. The filmore and union pistachio and chocolate log thing was totally sublime, beyond any health food treat I’d ever found.Hal raves about a restaurant in Newcastle called ‘Al Bayak‘ or ‘The Bake’ and his friend’s brewing company Northern Alchemy sounds pretty wicked too. And if you’re interest was peaked by the prospect of wine that looks like piss but hasn’t any chemicals in then look up Naked Wines.

He makes me a glorious shakshuka and I make him a deeply repulsive vegan chocolate mousse which he is hilariously charming about- it was inedible. And I say that as someone who, if you’re a regular listener will know, once sucked port out of a 2nd hand rug.RecipesFor John’s shaksuka – you’ll have to listen, and carefully, with a pen and a pausing finger ready. For my vegan chocolate mousse lick but be warned, unless you’re a HUGE mousse and multiple-types-of-fat-in-your-mouth-at-once fan, I’d steer clear.Honourable MentionsJohn’s latest book is Orange Blossom & Honey and his first book, which he also mentioned was Mighty SpiceThe insane Taiwanese restaurant in Hong Kong that’s coming to London summer of 2018 is Din Tai FungThe hot sauce he mentions being totally filthy and addictive from his cupboard was THIS one and the mucky Turkish sausage was sujuk“The wankiest of all roses” was Whispering AngelAnd the local supermarket I don’t think I could live without was the Turkish Food Centre, which has branches all over south London.

You will NEVER guess.__RecipesCarl talks us really carefully through how he made his seitan but here’s a recipe that I intend to try. And here’s one for the courgette chocolate (vegan) cupcakes which I swear were lighter and more cakey last time I made them so who knows. Just don’t rush them.__Honorable mentions I can’t wait to check out The Gate restaurants which it looks like there’s a few of now. The Chinese restaurant I took Mikey to for that mouth-blowing birthday a few years back was called A Wong and here’s what I wrote about it after we went.
