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 35: ROSIE BIRKETT: FOOD STYLIST, COOKERY WRITER & CHEF

My guest today is Rosie Birkett

Rosie is a food writer, food stylist and author. She has written 3 cookbooks and has been writing about chefs, restaurants, and food since 2008.

Rosie’s recipes and food styling have appeared on the cover of BBC Good Food Magazine  Olive Magazine, and been featured in The Telegraph, Red magazine , Grazia, In Style and Guardian Cook.

Of her brilliant book : a lot on her plate – it was said by none other than  Michel Roux Jr:

“In a culinary world full of froths, foams and smears this is a book for those that love real food. It s a breath of fresh air and a feast for the eyes, full of mouth-watering recipes to excite the palate and take you to a gastronomic heaven. “

Rosie genuinely makes delicious food and her passion is clear. I love the breadth of her food, meaning she is equally as happy with a bacon sandwich as she is with the best spaghetti vongole Venice has to offer. There’s nothing faddy about her food, it’s just honest, delicious grub. That’s not to say it doesn’t look fantastic, because it does. Rosie’s food styling is gorgeous and makes you want to five head first into everything she posts safe in the knowledge it will taste as good as it looks.
