The last few weeks have seen all of our lives changed to some extent. It’s been a very strange time for me. My diary was fully booked and 2020 started out very busy, and then we all found ourselves in lockdown. Professionally speaking, I’ve had to make some changes to what I do, and I’ll be sharing some updates in my newsletter soon.
A few weeks ago, I received a phone call from Jules Waddell, who I met at a food festival a couple of years ago. We were both speaking on a panel about our careers in food. Jules is a former BBC Radio 4 radio journalist and now the founder of Moorish humous. She asked if I’d like to work with her on a podcast idea she had, and the rest is history.
We’ve had an absolute ball recording so far, and have tried to share positive stories from what’s happening in the world of food and drink at the moment, as well as discussing the challenges. We want to bring you stories and conversations about what is happening right across the world of food and drink, as there are some wonderful things happening, as well as opportunities to reshape and innovate.
We’ve spoken to well known faces, from TV chefs and bestselling authors to restaurateurs, flour millers, farmers, cheesemakers, sourdough bakers and kitchen gardeners, all of whom share their experiences, advice and a peek into how their lives have changed on a personal level. It’s been fascinating for us and we hope you’ll enjoy listening.
We’ve also built a website for you, with lots of information on independent suppliers offering home delivery and when the supermarkets are open. We hope you’ll enjoy listening and find this a useful resource, too. You can find Pandemic Pantry podcast on all the usual channels, and should you wish to subscribe or review, this can be down on Apple Podcasts.
Do, please let us know your thoughts and send your questions in for me on our social media channels @pandemicpantry.
Thanks so much for your support and messages, and stay safe,
