Behind-the-scenes at Borough Market: listen now
In this week’s packed magazine-style episode, I head to the iconic Borough Market for the delicious. Produce Awards judging, talk to Daniel Tapper from Beak Brewery whose unique beer is made from hops grown in the market hall and discuss how the market has evolved – over 20 years – with Henrietta Green.
I also chat to Alison Swan Parente MBE about The School of Artisan Food, head to the Redemption bar to see if it really is the healthiest bar in London and cook laterally with author, Niki Segnit.
So, what’s in the November pod? delicious. editor Karen Barnes is up first, talking about eco cups and how it’s uncool to be seen without one.
I take a slice of Alison Swan Parente’s life. From starting a bakery to launching an artisanal cookery school, where students arrive feeling pretty bad about themselves but by the time they finish the course they are accomplished, self-assured and are ready to make a living from what they have learnt.
Champion of regional British produce Henrietta Green discusses how, in 1998, she bought her Food Lover’s Fair to Borough Market and paved the way of what the market has become – an icon of food from all over the world.
Also in Borough Market, we hear from Daniel Tapper who has just harvested hops that were grown in the giant market hall.
And, don’t miss, the judges of this year’s delicious. Produce Awards, led by Prue Leith, talking about the awards and what they were looking for when unearthing some real gems of British produce.
