Stir The pot

Stir The Pot is a podcast about food and the people that love it. Each episode I will interview a chef, food writer or even just a celebrity that loves food and loves to talk about it. If you want to chat to me about anything podcast related drop me a line at



This week we talk with Signe Johansen about the nordic idea of Hygge, which roughly translates as cosiness. We talk about why the idea has suddenly taken hold in the UK and what it actually means and how we can apply it to our lives.

This weeks episode is our second from the city of lights, my favourite place, Paris. We are joined by the fabulous Harry Eastwood, a food writer you may know from her first tv show Cook Yourself Thin or her brilliant cookbooks, including her latest Carneval, a meat based cookbook for the 21st century. This is a really fun episode and Harry was an absolutely wonderful guest.

Episode 4 is with the brilliant Rosie Birkett, a food writer and stylist based in East London. We talk about her childhood in an almost real life version of the Good Life, well the food elements anyway, moving to Vancouver to follow the man she loved and her career in the food industry.
