Hoovering - Episode 56: Live in Islington Part 2

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 comes live from the lovely wee Hen & Chickens Theatre in Islington, with eta-guests comedian Lou Sanders, poet and broadcaster Salma El Wardarny and star of Bake Off and the sweetest banker I’ve ever met, Antony Amourdoux (who is fit, well and fine for clarity - read on). Most of our food for this episode was made my the incredible vegan Italian eatery Antonios in East London who, in absolutely tragic news, has passed away - this episode is released in his memory. His hard work and vision and desire to make incredible plant based food that made people go ‘wow’ (and my word: it DID, it was amazing) - will and must not be forgotten. This one’s for you Antonio.
