We are curious about all sorts of things that have to do with producing, preparing, and sharing food. We are fascinated by food history and love to hear stories about how what and how we eat, informs who we are.
We are looking for interesting stories from a wide range of people. Although we often talk to people who are, or have been, in the food industry, we are interested in other food-related conversations as well.

Having said that, we do prepare for the interview and will have a list of "conversation starters" that we are happy to share with you in advance. If there are any taboo subjects or topics that would make you uncomfortable please let us know. We tend to stick to the standard dinner party etiquette of avoiding discussions about politics, religion and sex.
Generally our conversation will last about an hour. We chat a bit and answer any questions you have before we start recording the interview. The finished podcast is usually between 20 and 30 minutes long after editing.

We are more interested in personality than perfection and will sort it all out in the editing process.
We will promote the episodes in the following ways:
