Hi.

Welcome to Desert Island Dishes. The official website for the weekly podcast where chef Margie Broadhead talks to a special guest about their life with food.

Here you will find conversations with a whole range of different people discussing their Desert Island Dishes.

The act of sharing one’s favourite dishes is both deeply personal and fascinating. Margie is able to reveal a different side to the guest being interviewed and find out about much more than the dishes that have shaped their lives.

We will find out about their favourite childhood dishes, the dishes they eat the most often, and the dishes that mean the most to them. Of course we will also discover what their last dish would be before being cast off to the desert island. 

Each week Margie will select one of the guest's Desert Island Dishes to use as inspiration to create a recipe around. There are already lots of delicious recipes for you to look through and to inspire your cooking.

Enjoy! x

EPISODE 32: BEN EBBRELL: CO FOUNDER & HEAD CHEF AT SORTED FOOD

My guest today is Ben Ebbrell.

Ben is one quarter of the YouTube cooking sensation that is SORTED food. SORTED food are the world’s most influential social media cooking brand and have over 1.6 million YouTube subscribers and over 11 million views a month.  They have been dubbed "the Inbetweeners of food".

Chef Ben is passionate about food and he's the trained chef of the group – having studied Culinary Arts Management at Birmingham University. He started his culinary journey at the tender age of 16 getting a part time job in a pub and quickly moving from pot washing to cooking.

Ben has cooked for the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Gary Barlow…and even the Queen. 

We talk about everything from narrowly avoiding cooking disasters, starting a Youtube channel, going into business with your friends and what happens when you pour a tin of tomato soup into cake batter. There's lots of culinary inspiration in this one and I hope you enjoy!

Desert island dish: lobster mac and cheese

Hope you enjoy this one!

And thank you so much for listening!
