Hoovering - Episode 142: Chloe Petts

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 an absolutely brilliant stand up called Chloe Petts. We get deep into so many things and fascinatingly, unbeknownst to me, she’s a mega fan of competitive eating and we end up having one of, arguably, the spiciest debates I’ve ever had on this podcast. It’s juicy and respectful and relflectful (not a word) and great. Enjoy please!

I got my big beautiful curly cucumber from ODDBOX and if you want one? And you want a massive £10 off your first box so it makes it just a few quid? Then USE THIS LINK MATE


THIS IS THE RECIPE for the beautiful ginger egg fried rice that Chloe had rustled up. Phwoar. I’m trying that. 

From the mind of the majestic OTTOLENGHI whose new book FLAVOUR really does look a bit like a twat actually. 

Chloe also mentioned a snazzy restaurant in Kent called READS

We have a little pop at HUEL, standard. 

I mention ace comedian, author and former guest VIV GROSKOP
