Hoovering - Episode 29: Simon Rimmer

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 my guest is none other than super star chef, restauranteur and co-host of Sunday Brunch amongst loads of other brilliant stuff - it’s the excellent Simon Rimmer. Simon is delightfully open about times where he’s overdone it on the workload, about the media-luvvie bubble it’s too easy to slip into and about the time he ate some whale. His stories about guests on Sunday Brunch are hilarious and his honesty about his journey and imperfections is disarmingly lovely. 


Honourable Mentions


Here’s a link to Simon’s inaugural, incidentally vegetarian restaurant ‘Greens’ and here’s a link to ALL THE BOOKS he’s written like a legend. 


Most importantly here is Richard Blackwood on Sunday Brunch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpH1goouCLQ


If you’re from overseas and hadn’t heard of the crisps/ chips we were talking about click on the name for links to salt & vinegar WALKERS or in my opinion, the superior DISCOS. And here are the original WOTSITS but it’s my view that these M&S one’s are even cheesier


The drink of Simon’s dreams is this swanky AF looking Billecart-Salmon Rose and the less swanky aperitif he chose is this particular brand of peanut butter from Monsieur ‘Skippy’ 


OH, And
