Hoovering - Episode 40: Ed Gamble

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 Mock The Week regular and star of Netflix’ amazing ALMOST ROYAL, a real kind-lovely-man of comedy - ED GAMBLE Get the full pasty origin story, hear the confessions of two really-not-real-vegans and learn what an Australian ananab is. 


I made us a VEGAN BORSCHT, as ever, click on the bit in capitals for the recipe. And I didn’t know what ‘vegan sour cream yogurt’ was, as I haven’t ever seen that in the UK yet so I stuck some of OTTOLENGHI’S TAHINI SAUCE on the roof instead.
