Hoovering - Episode 33: Dave Coulson

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 I’m talking-to the mega-lovely, wonder-chef Dave Coulson off of The Great British Menu. We met in his glorious restaurant in Newcastle called Peace and Loaf. I love bread and I hate wars, so I knew I’d have a great time. I brought him a disguising durian fruit which caused a stir and a stink in the kitchen - fun to be the one bringing some drama. And he made me something incredible out of the bits of pigs that are usually destined for the dustbin. He’s so fun and honest about what his local Michelin star inspector looks like and all the acute cuisine he feeds his son (not). This one was so fun and exciting to record. We met in a working kitchen, so there’s some background noise, but who cares, ey.
