Andi Oliver

In this glorious whirlwind of an episode, Jimi and Alison talk to the incredible Andi Oliver, chef, broadcaster and host of Great British Menu. With amazing energy, charisma and wit, Andi talks about her life and career, including the racism she faced growing up in 1970s Britain, her discovery of punk, singing, cooking and filming with her best friend Neneh Cherry, travelling the world, running restaurants - and her lifelong passion for good food with its ability to heal, nurture and connect us all.
