I often think about the my swimming. swims in the poems. But a all my bicycle as spanning the job job. I think about the thing. He said about The curtain on his landing and how he's able to judge how well oh poorly. He's doing mental health wise. Whether he can be bothered opening the curtain. Not because that was just the most fantastic articulation. I feel as you know of of a stuff mental health for years and it was a really fantastic articulation of walk can feel herculean and often when you're in the pit you don't know how bad things are lose all perspective but i thought that was a tangible thing that can tell you how well you do whether you can be you know in his case in that little curtain sunny one. Isn't it that that's interview. Some sort of really Struck a chord with a lot of people. He speaks about mental health. I think so candidly and eloquently. Maybe but baby that tells you something quite important which is may maybe in a sense. Break it at recognizing this which is why haven't being break rightsizing. This amazing we need to recognize it more. Which is things are often speech. We ideas because they really speak to people. But i mean people talking honestly about themselves which is respond well to anticipate yet even also has become slightly lower of the word Take your point to things. They always fantasy but it's also humidity tonight all sort of what. I was just thinking about this question. I was struggling to pinpoint a moment. But i was thinking something i think about a lot with. Regards this podcast is empathy. Yeah and about how important we've we've done episodes about in touched on it as a theme lots of times but i think understanding each other stories an understanding what life is like for the people and how it fails. Now it's different here on is is really key to a lot of the ideas and to fixing divisions and i think take alastair temple earth thing i think him speaking honestly has made people understand mental health. A lot better so so they're gaining empathy. I think empathy comes from Peop- people be brave enough to be honest and tell stories. This comes from jasper heywood. Who says love the podcast. Listen fairly religiously. Why only fairly jasper ican justified star review. He has already as of show breaking. That'd be appendi- here.

Jasper you know we talk about alleged to stories lost episodes should just go back and listen to the bowl okay. I'm going to tell delicious into story so picture the scene. Yep there i am. Yep the leisure centre yup Life was never the same again after that. Fateful day stoneking story. Yep if hollywood wants to buy the film rights to that one let's start a bidding war worth waiting for a while -solutely. Shall we move onto some christmas questions. Yeah so verity says. I have one slightly odd question for the gap has jeff anything planned for a main for christmas dinner from a fellow veggie looking for recommendations well. Here's the thing. I have ordered a box from rudy's vegan butchers which has got the full meat substitute christmas dinner. Ready to go. So it's got like a mock. Turkey rolled as slices of kostroma meatballs for coal. Play against a vegetables. Brussel sprouts with pretend bacon on it. But sarah which. I'm looking for just for your for everybody. Well i'm gonna put it on the on the table but was there for one. No no i'm asking for me you know it's like if it's a family family case so i'm excited to try that but sarah's not a fan of christmas food so i think what we're gonna do is ever few different. Nigel slater easy veggie recipes on the go. That fail hearty for this time of year. There's a really good Honest portabella mushrooms can sound a like veggie food from the seventies but he does a really good one with tahini and chick peas Will maybe have some brussel sprouts with dell your boss around on your inspiring me now because you see the children just gonna have roast beef and i definitely red meat so i was going to get a not rose just did not rose thing as already made not roots thing. So i could order from rudy's to pimp Amount rush on. It might be might have left it to extend your where which which shabnam In this recipe there this he could veggie stuff and it's easy. This book called green faced. And it's in two volumes. As a spring summer autumn winter and the autumn winter stuff is so. I think we're going to look for a few different things that really easy and then put them on the table with this radice. Christmas faced over the next question. If some reason you are listening to this podcast with children look away now might be the time to just turn it down or turn off. We're going to get in some adult content. Look look away now. If you're gonna watch much of the day later on today the this these are the results spoiler alert. We've we've given people enough time to to stop the podcast if that listen with children okay.

"Questions that really Tell the story off. The difference. We are in terms between the ingredients between The U. K in the United States. So first of all the chilies so in British supermarkets, you can get Red Chili without the specification off type, and it's a medium heat. Red chili. On. It's kind of you can get both specific if you want, but they actually is that we get here often is with a leg with the type with a label red, chili or medium heat and the very versatile and they're just perfect for creating something which is Um, which they're kind of that long, So it's not the bird's eye, and it's not the what you call the smaller ones. Uh, Got the name of it anyway. They're very They're kind of perfectly mild and and you can medium heat and you can use them across the board. And here we just because we don't give them a name. We know that there were they working all these contexts. So that's that's the one that you'd be looking at. You should be looking for medium heat. Normally the smaller chili. There's just so much more. It's more sparse here like the Scotch bonnet or the bird's eye, but this is the moment they start growing in, and that's what you're looking for. And they crushed garlic is something I learned the hard way because in Britain and we say crushed garlic we call what North American people called Miss Starling. Oh, you take gonna crush or you do it. Why not get your garlic, minced Andre. And I Occasionally I had my recipes published in American publications that called for fresh colic and I see a whole garlic clove. Just back with a knife inside of this way should have bean Squeezed out of the garlic crush on or with a knife and I and I now I learned the hard way. When I say crushed garlic, I mean, minced garlic for the American audience or crushed garlic for the British audience. And these are just two really good examples of things that are Lost in translation, even between two English speaking nations. Well, Yeah. Thank you for the translation. Okay. How much time on average. Do you spend preparing family dinner on a weeknight or on the weekend? How much time on average. Do you spend preparing family? Always the same question. Repeated s O. How much time do you spend on average Band Family dinner, So I'm like the well. And I do you know, I don't do as much cooking as my husband does it home and I think he spent quite a bit of time Could I would say he spent 45 minutes at least on a family dinner. But also he does something that we both do quite a lot, and that's fact cooking. So in our house, mostly And when you cook, you batch cooks, so we've got sauce and it's really I mean, people imagine that you're super organized and tidy and and plan ahead and have this kind of, you know. Forward thinking mind when you do batch looking, but all I mean, is you make a sauce, so you make a stew and you just put it a little container and stick them in the freezer and then you don't need to do it the next day, and I have become a real advocate of this thing. It's a bit like those confident that I talked about earlier. It's just if they should, same amount of time almost double it Triple it. Yeah, but there's nothing more trumpet. But in a way, it's so much more sense to do that. So We do? I do. On Sunday after native batch Well, that's I'm not gonna talk about that. Because that to the two Shefi, But anyway, I I You do your sauce. You know your past the songs that tomato sauce tonight and I do it often on the weekend. It takes me an hour and a half and I do these containers and this is from the freezer and Come out so easily. So, yeah, That's the answer during the week and I would spend much more time cooking because there's just more time Spencer than Might make a cake for after dinner, and but that's that's when you have the time to spend in the kitchen, which is lovely and during lockdown, obviously, when people are static home. Obviously it's been a lot of time cooking because he could know where to go. Highly recommended. But I missed dinner parties. Do you missed dinner parties Do Mr parties and it's just being with people. I miss sitting on the bar and restaurant with a good friend and, you know, hooking and just like, you know, Rubbing shoulders and elbows with lots of other people. I really miss that. Means that we still have. We can still have dinner parties here for up to six. So s O. I have hosted one actually, only a couple of days ago, which is fire. Right. Nice. Good memory off the old days, so that okay? I think we got time for a couple more questions. And, um have how much time on average. No, we've done that one. Um okay. Here's a question from the UK What do you think people mean? When they say a dish is very Ottolenghi? How does that make you feel? With so many parents at home with their kids. Do you have tips to help parents get their kids to cook with him? Okay, So two questions in one. So what does it mean to be a naughty Langi dish? Yeah, it's something that I've learned the hard way so Sometimes we cook something here in the desk kitchen, which is where I am, and you know most of it. And experiments has done here and often we come come up with something which is good, But it's just off the Langi enough and we tell that to ourselves. You know its sense of that ironic But it is really true that there is a son of the set of expectations when it comes to them, So thank you. Fish. And, um, e guess what it means is that it needs it needs a kind of It needs to be some kind of a curveball. I think there needs to be an element of surprise or something slightly unusual going on. What it comes to not telling me this is just can't be. In the UK We have Nigel Slater for that, right. Like we have people who write more traditional recipes that are really, really good and are You know they're solid, but from Ottolenghi dish, there's always this expectation of some fireworks or something a little bit different and unusual happening, the sweet and the sour and there's something about the presentation that they need to be quite a lot of contrast in the dish. Otherwise flavor wise that all these things are what people have come to expect. And often I want to put something on the menu. And the only thing that stops me from doing that. It's because it's all about the lengthy enough, which sounds very bizarre, but it's just It's just the way it is. So, yeah, I think those air that's my observation. Um With regards to cooking with Children. I think it really depends what age they are, because I've just find this is a romantic notion doesn't really work most of the time. Um, because I tried so many So many times in the past to get like Live asked, you know, like, Let's bake a cake. But what happens in the end is that they walk in. They may be crack an egg, and then they find something more exciting to do. And then you're left with With the cooking and the washing up, So I think it is that there is this something a notion that but I don't know what happens with their 11 or 12. I'm sure it's better, but mine are still seven and five, so I often say Oh, let's cook something together, but actually, I know that means that they're gonna I'm gonna cook and they're gonna watch for as long as they can master their patients and then they're gonna move on. E like that practical, pragmatic approach. Um okay. So I think this was probably time for our last question. Um, how long do you know Where do you anticipate food culture in the UK and all of the U. S a going in the next 2 to 3 years. Yeah, That's a great question to end. Where is it Really good question. Well, I think it's hard because I'm their covert has just thrown it in the whole new perspective of I think of everything that has started to shift in the way stopped. Well, some things have stopped in some things accelerated. So the whole notion of people having food delivered to their door has obviously boom to beyond what? Anyone who had expected and then you've got you have the whole range of options from cook to semi cook too raw, too. And so we all know how these things work. Now, as I think that's kind of here to stay, But you know, certain things have become really important like those getting raw ingredients certain delivered to your door. In just the right quantity off, which, when less wasteful way than it used to be, although there's more ways from packaging, so it's a kind of a It's a tricky situation. So that's definitely here to stay. The whole notion of delivery. Um, I think the vegetable cooking is definitely where we're all heavy because it's just it's just the way things are. And What if it's happening in terms the way people they eat? I feel that the old ready meal Is fast itself by date now, so because I just find it people around me at least, but I think of it Z represents..

I think anybody who who likes the kind of the short punchy recipe Andy. What have you been reading talking short and company? I think I know. I've been reading Nobel James Joyce Ulysses for the third time so I haven't read. UC's about thirty years. And I wanted to get ahead of myself before next year's Christmas episode of Bad listed which will be on ulysses so the whole year also because I was reading when we start about listed four years ago I was reading Finnegans wake so it seemed to bring this background. UC's and also so this year. I've read reread dubliners portrait artist. Young man some of the poetry and it just so you know although we've got priest episode coming up and although white people would rather I were reading Lee Child. I'm not going to do that. I'm going to read James Joyce's novel ulysses because my notes so I read it and the two things world this is amazing and also. This is still quite difficult. I found it quite challenging when I was twenty and found it quite challenging nothing wrong with being in challenging but also I thought. UC's James Joyce does have a link Tomaso apart from being two of the Great Nobles of the Twentieth Century which is that of course on on May the eighteenth nineteen twenty two as recorded in Richard Hinds. His book annoyed at the Majestic Proust's. And Joyce had dinner together in in the company of Stravinsky and Deanna Laugh and Ford Maddox would've and Picasso. So as the result was very low rent gathering the dinner was not judged tremendous success to pomo could've kicked two long. There was a conversation association between Proust's and Joyce and they're they're we have various accounts of what transpires one of the versions of it is they. They had a chat in which all they did was compare ailments but another one is that they had a shoot in which they admitted to one another that neither had read the it now. The thing is the source of that version of the chat was picked up two years after the dinners picked up in nineteen eighteen. Twenty four by the poets William Cull of Williams with whom you may be familiar. What's interesting is that William Carlos Williams uh-huh went on to write a poem about what he imagined Proust's enjoy said to one another and how he imagined the Mike Golic? They've got the original manuscript. So this is this is William Homeless Williams. William call us about the meeting between James Joyce. I'm also praised on this is a world premiere. This is just to say I've yet to read the book that is a sensation and which you were probably scribbling for ages. uh-huh forgive me. Do you have a job or a family. And it's definitely him because he signed it William Carlos Williams nineteen twenty four. Have you been reading this week.

You know, that was kind of, in sort of my stay in, like the eighties and nineties when I was growing up. I think my mom thought time the kitchen was a bit of infringement on her sort of liberty in a lot of ways, you know, we could save that our moms are kind of robbed of that.

They ready ready sort of flee the flag for seasonal eating and seasonal cooking, which then kind of I think, trickled down brilliant, people like Nigel.

Have then gone on to either write books. We'll have restaurants that have been informed, you know how we cook and Jamie, obviously as a huge huge I worked for Jamie, Ashley of quite a few years.

You have like an open fire you'll house. Yeah. We go quite traditional at Christmas could paint a picture. Well, it's a Flintstone Christmas. Like, it's very very fun died on Christmas Eve, we get really drunk on Christmas Eve as family and dad's aid. Every other year. My dad gets out the whole Monica as per. Well, it's it's only Irish folk songs because that's anything. It's in the job. Will you go Lassie go? So it gets a bit raw because on Christmas Eve by Christmas day. We don't really get up until about eleven God. I don't know. If we've talked about rookies, harmonica rookies harmonica goes with him wherever he goes. I remember I used to live with you. And we'd be like watching telly just watching a movie or something to say about Haji. Unannounced asked he just stop playing the head. He loves it wonder if he can do the porno theme to you on the on the Hajo that'd be good to learn. They go dead. Festive project for a fee manages that. Should we put that out? I don't want to put the pressure on for war. I recognise go to him. And he certainly got the free time. Do you pay Christmas games in the in the Flintstone house? No, we're very anti games. Because much a twenty four hour on. Because half of us really, competitive and half of us already sensitive. So he goes, well, even like scrabble than the worst team. Hundred and fifty then close up at rookie makes words don't be ridiculous. Remember new goal is a word where the shimmy Coghlan's her speaks semi Ripplewood school. He's laughing his way to the vying. He loves those invisible. Leslie. You'd never guess what it is. I'm not gonna tell you. If you want people really excited for this. It's become a bit of Christmas tradition. I like to think that people will be sneaking off from the Christmas gathering. They'll have saved it till after Christmas day sneak off, and what's the opportune time to do precisely after dinner Banou throw up they pre- presence because you come back ashen. Where are you right now? He would you in a cupboard she doing and you wanted to do your just got be support particular you'll live. DVD even though it's almost a defunct technology relatives realize that given it a gift to this ungrateful. I think some people will listen to on the train home. So they'll get back to them. And at a bit of a weird mood. We'll they definitely won't be corny. Will. They just kill all impulses. Well, that's why it's safe to listen to on the train, isn't it? Because under the front of Nana anything in. Those hearing aids they can pick up all sorts. Last night the plug. They pick up every Lil nano knows exactly what you're doing right now. I'm going on my Nana would always be fast asleep. And we'll be like, okay, fine. We just watched something on TV change the channel immediately. She. One year. We just thought that you know, we're not going to do it which is just gonna just power through don't care. What? Sense. So we changed the channel. And she was like what whereas downtown downtown on downton abbey. You know, what he is on the downtown? I need downtown John. Where did you John will? He was and she cracked this goes it's on now.

"Has everyone said that we love NITEL. It doesn't that say though. Now, I feel like I need to say someone else now. Oh, Nigel Slater. Okay. But he's he's an incredible writer, and he always makes me literally LOL. So I will I will laugh out loud. His descriptions of food for Jackson books as an other one. He's an incredible shift. I also I basically think it's I I get attached to their personality because a lot of the time. I don't actually cook. What they what they know Tina tell me to cook. And so, yeah, it's really that's not. That's good personalities. What we want in food as well. What was your favorite childhood treat? I would say this is weird. But it was a direct route. Which is. Yeah, I don't even know to be honest on trying to explain it. But it's it's another Fiji dish. I would say raw t my mom's not seen senior mom. Oh my gosh. The best. Yeah. So I would say that Pori Puri is like when you'd basically just deep fry the Russian. Thanks, and I would have to say like some toast made. Yeah. Classic kind of things. It's great. It's great. I've always. Yeah. I've got such envy. When a see your mom on your stories making fade, fee them amazing. Yeah. Okay. The last question. What is the last thing you tried for the first time? My love that question. You have to think what the hell does. He mean. The thing that's running to my head right now that I'm so angry at myself that I haven't tried anything new in a long time, that's quite disappointing. Because I mean, I I should be able to just turn around and say I had blah, blah, blah. But I just I Don I have creatures of habit, and that's the danger. I mean, it's not a danger because sometimes that consistency is good yet. But yeah, I would say that. I I can't even remember the last time I try which is just so now you can offensive bio out trying to mediate tell me top me when you do I want to try and unique. I will try something you do it. Okay. Thank you. Okay. So that wraps up. Nearly the end of this episode only goodness. You had so many amazing knowledge poems in there as well. Which is great. But as with every weakest we've finished with a food for thought some mind today is the honestly, I think stress free life. Opposite doesn't happen by chance..

"This is a there is a cultural elitism or a cultural so many cultural divisions that we that we put up because of the ways and the things that we eat, Geno. Well, I mean, there's there's a tribe out there that I think goes across all class and race in any kind. It's just people who will try the shit and people who won't you're already in some kind of rare club. And it's it's funny because you know, I think board Borden had talked about that experience being in France, you know, as a as a preteen, and and deciding that he was gonna eat an oyster. Yeah. Remember like that? This was you know, both away to torment his brother who would not eat annoy, sir, and to kind of define himself as in on an identity level, and he found it completely life-changing. It sounds like that approach of just saying like I. I don't know who I am yet. But I am the person who ordered Bulla nays while all these other peons were eating burgers hundred percent. So somewhere that you started working in kitchens? But you also said I mean speaking aboard, and you've said that he, you know, in his writing was a big influence on you when you were young. It was supposed to be it was it was it was being able to combine those things cooking and writing and have been I started writing when I was probably similar time fifteen or sixteen and like everyone starts I think that's as why you're right in poetry right in some stories of that. No. I really got into writing. But not in not not in school. I was a fucking terrible fucking student at school. And and I finished my exams, and I didn't know what I wanted to do. So one of the one of the one of the things you could do when you didn't couldn't do anything with you go into a kitchen and start off as a KP. And then all of a sudden, you're you're a chef, you know, and and that's that's. Why I suppose bourdain story chime so well with me it was just thought. Well, what the fuck do. I like food. Okay. Let's just am. So I took a couple of jobs as KP, and then I got a job as a chef. And then I then it was a great way to travel, you know, because then you could just go somewhere else and working another Italian restaurant. But you kind of have that skill set soon went to Scotland. Oh, yeah. Just go into apply in Italian restaurants. So I got a job in another tiny restaurant at the same time. And you wanted to go back to college and study because I loved English literature in that. And so I went back as a mature student when I was twenty two to study English and art history and cork, and I thought it wasn't going to cook anymore for the first two years. I I didn't cook it all at home and Bush, I didn't cope professionally and it wasn't until maturity or run out of money again. And then went back start a coconut again and finished my degree started a PHD in art history. I did that for eight years and in that period. I was cooking. And I I just. Never got the hang of it. And in that period of time we opened up three restaurants had two children. And then I always have this hanging over me that I was out. I was like just two separate lives that I was living on. That's why always loved and board anes, right? And also other writers like Nigel Slater and different people who loved food who wrote on combine the two things really well, and for a long time, I wasn't able to combine them because I wanted to be a writer I wanted to write fiction and plays and to be a real writer, and I still feel in spite of having written a cookbook, and I write a column in the national newspaper every week. I still feel I'm not a writer yet. Yeah. It's having written that piece of fiction or having written that, I know and when you talk to journalists like this fucking punch in the face with some journalists. It was like fuck you in your fucking you. Right. You're taking up my space. Paper about what you're you're not a writer. What don't you get the fuck off? And he was saying like shampoo people like you are stealing my Falkland job. And I was like that's very Brexit talk from the journalists there. I'll just get ahead of your argument..

"And the absolute strangest thing in the entire book fees for the is is something called meet Choi. Now, I'll let you talk about it. But this is a piece of performance art in the early nineteen sixties, I performed in Paris me. Yeah. Me Joey was a a feminist performance and food is often used in feminism because obviously it's cessations with women and domesticity and women's role in the kitchen, it's very strong. So it was a great signify to be able to comment on something. And in the book, it's a still from the video, which is this kind of bacchanalian ritual. Of food being rubbed over bodies. And it's black and white. So it has that fantastic. Kind of seventies performance feel to it. And the people aren't naked. They're wearing kind of strange tights, which you can actually see in the photograph. But there's dead chickens being rubbed over them sausage. So the actual performance would not just a visual one. But also one the you could smell 'cause raw food, and obviously raw meat has a very particular smell to it. So the audience would have been brought into this performance as well. It's really about flash in the body. And it's kind of funny as well when you see the ecstatic wilderness of these people in their performance. So the beginning of this interview, I mentioned that you said food is about a month number of things, but about power house food. About power or food photography about power. Excuse me. I think a really great example of that someone like Cindy, Sherman who were cheeses food. In the most obvious way to show that not eating is about power. It's it's about control and what you put in your body. And what you don't put in your body is a very powerful way of controlling how people look at you. How people think about you controlling your shape, and she really kind of takes that and the pitcher in the book is of a beach scene, but it's a very disturbed beach scene. There's some vomit there's a reflection of a woman in the glasses. This is not a beach babe who kind of sips on a colour. This is a woman who is had these images thruster her, and she's kind of fomented it all up again. So that's taking it to an extreme to show how food can be you can control it and also how it can control. You. So let me get your advice looking at cookbooks in the last twenty years, there's been a lot of changes in food photography. I'm in the business. And I've noticed that a lot of photographs are really good these days, but they're getting to look alike, very vertical the round plates, the very plain backgrounds a lot of color and contrast, do do you see a trend in food photography and cookbooks. And do you see things you like and things you don't like? Yeah. I think I think the last one two years is a really interesting time to look at within cookbooks because twenty years ago, there was a shift too much more kind of documentary photography, and this is when I was teaching myself to cook. And I was going to look at people like Nigel Slater and the river cafe books, and they were different. They look different to me. They had the pitches of the chefs in which now, of course, they all do. But at that time it seemed a little bit different and the plates. Messy, and they read more like art books, and that seemed very exciting to me, and that has just kind of developed and developed developed and come much more stylized during this time. You've also got the internet came about and food blogging where the photographs do have a certain kind of look the very wholesome bit kinfolk key. And thought has definitely tipped over into the cookbook what I'm seeing now, which I don't particularly like is the influence of Instagram. So a lot of cookbooks have of retro feel to them. They look like the filters put over them and then slightly more dire. Stick in the way that social network has. Susan bright. Thank you so much. Feast for the is the story of Tar Creek great book. I really appreciate your time. Thank you. Thank you..
