Hoovering - Episode 189: Toussant Douglas

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 hoovering with amazing rising star stand up comedian and self-described ‘Lewisham native’ - the lovely Toussant Douglas. We went swanky and hit up Lewisham’s first ever fine dining restaurant, Sparrow, for lunch. It’s extremely high end food, served beside a massive violent mess of a new roundabout. Everything about it is weirdly brilliant in my book. Sorry neither of us were brave enough to order the pig’s head.
