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 39: TIM ANDERSON: MASTERCHEF WINNER & FOUNDER OF JAPANESE RESTAURANT NANBAN

EPISODE 39: TIM ANDERSON: MASTERCHEF WINNER & FOUNDER OF JAPANESE RESTAURANT NANBAN

My guest today is Tim Anderson.

 

Tim, at the age of just 26 was the youngest ever winner of Masterchef.  Since winning back in 2011, Tim has carved out a very impressive career in food working as a chef, a consultant and a food writer. He is, much to my enormous envy and admiration a staple of the Radio 4 food panel show The Kitchen Cabinet.

 

Tim has said his proudest career moment has to be the launch of his first cookery book Nanban: Japanese Soul Food and the opening of his acclaimed restaurant of the same name, in the heart of Brixton.

 

During his time on Masterchef, the judges declared that Tim gave them the ‘best culinary explosion” they had ever seen on the show.

 

Desert Island Dish:

 

Ploughman’s with a good Ale. Pork pie, good onion chutney, many cheeses – sharp cheddar, brie, camembert, pears and lots of good bread.

 

Luxury Item: His cat Baloo
