On the podcast this week, I spend time with River Cottage’s Steven Lamb, chat to a kefir producer on Cowdray and delve into the April issue with delicious. editor Karen Barnes.

River Cottage's Steven Lamb

First up, my monthly check-in with delicious. editor Karen Barnes. After a quick catch up about gin (we can’t help ourselves), she tells me about what you can find in the April issue of the magazine.

Next up, I wanted to find out what River Cottage’s Steven Lamb ‘Tastes Like Home’ recipe would be but actually, instead of divulging his mother’s liver recipe, he tells me that home-cured bacon would be his recipe to share. Listen to find out why.

At the Jane Grigson Trust Awards, I spoke to trustee and judge Geraldine Holt to find out more about how the winners were judged.  I also heard from Dan Saladino (before he won!) about his book and why he took a career change to write it.

Brighton chef Michael Watt set up the Syndicate Kitchen to host a new style of pop-up, where punters share tables with food producers. He tells me why he wants to bring people together over dinner.

At Cowdray, I talk to Susana Perez about making Susana & Daughters kefir. She tells me how from growing up in rural Spain to making a home in Chichester, how she got into making the fermented milk drink.

And, whether you love it or hate it, our delicious deputy food editor Sophie gives us 25 seconds on Marmite.
