We – Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich – invite the people we most admire from the food world to come over and chat. Cooks, waiters, writers, drinkers, thinkers: we have a glass of wine, something to eat and they tell us the story of making a life in food. The talks are then released as a podcast, a good thing to listen to while you’re cooking your dinner.
Listen out for Season 8, all about our travels around the Levant as part of our research for our new cookbook Chasing Smoke.

Series 5: Olive Oil with Mother’s Garden
Martin and Maggie of Mother’s Garden have been farming arbequina olives and living an adventure in the Priorat mountains of Catalonia, south of Barcelona, since January 2001. Their cold-pressed oil is a lively, delicate and fresh olive oil and unlike any other we have tried.
Series 5: Chocolate with Joanna Brennan of Pump Street
Joanna Brennan co-founded Pump Street Bakery with her father in the village of Orford in Suffolk. After mastering the art of naturally-leavened bread, they ventured into making chocolate from beans imported directly from single estates and cooperatives around the world. We talk to Joanna about the obsessive care and attention to detail that goes into the roasting profile of each bean and how each stage requires a careful eye, and nose.
