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. Turn to page 90 to see what we thought of Ot­tolenghi’s new Lon­don restau­rant, Rovi.
