SIMPLE PLEASURES What are we listening to?
Celebrating the launch of his latest book, Ottolenghi Simple, Yotam Ottolenghi’s new seven-part podcast sees the chef chew the fat with guests – covering subjects ranging from food and travel to music – over dishes from his new cookbook. The guest list is prestigious and includes the likes of Michael Palin, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Nigella Lawson, Helen Goh, Jessie Ware and Fearne Cotton.
Why you should download it
The first episode features Yotam and Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain bonding over herb fritters and gnocchi alla romana, with topics ranging from parenting tips to Bangladeshi cuisine and how Nadiya’s mum cooks an impressive eight curries every day. Chatty and relaxed, we reckon this would make perfect Sunday afternoon listening. Available fortnightly on all good podcast apps.
