Hoovering - Episode 100: Ruby Tandoh

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.


It’s the 100th ever episode! So I’ve answered your requests and got a guest a number of you have asked for - the absolutely brilliant Ruby Tandoh. Bake Off star and writer - author of the most brilliant book about eating I’ve ever read so far, Eat Up. We met in the lovely swanky Acast studio and talked about everything from rules to social media to marrow to Minstrels. 


Everything written below in CAPITALS is a link to the relevant webpage.
