The Waterstones Podcast - Eating

Posted on 23rd October 2019 by Mark Skinner

Your chance to hear authors going beyond the book to talk about the themes and ideas that obsess us all. 


Eating

Beware: this episode may make you hungry. We’re joined by gourmand Jay Rayner as he looks back at the life experiences that shaped his taste as he searches for the ingredients for his last supper. Michael Palin shares his experiences of eating around the world and how food can be a great unifier of people who may not even share a language. And Lara Williams talks about subverting the idea of appetite for her stunning debut novel about female friendship.
