Hoovering - Episode 50: Grace Petrie
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 the incredible folk-singer, song-writer and activist the glorious Grace Petrie. We cover veganism, love, putting burgers and jam on a pizza, the Leicester food scene and also just as a bit of a bonus I have an argument with a really sexy fly.

I made the recipe up for what we ate but essentially it was vegan shepherds pie with roasted veg. The pie was a base of brown and green whole lentils cooked very slowly with onions, celery, tiny carrots, herbs and then stock reduced until the lentils were firm but it was in a sort of gravy. Then the top was mashed sweet potatoes because that’s what I had in. The roasted veg was broccoli and halved sprouted done for 25 mins.
GO AND SEE GRACE PETRIE doing tour support for Frank Turner or on the Lefty Scum Tour in March.

In case we were saying it wrong this is what a PUY LENTIL is.
