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 42: SKYE MCALPINE: COOK, PHOTOGRAPHER & AUTHOR

My guest today is Skye McAlpine

Skye is a Venice based food writer, blogger and photographer. She is the author of the successful blog “From my Dining table” and has written for many of the big named publications like The Sunday Times, vanity fair and The Guardian. She spends most of her time in Venice, where she writes, teaches cookery workshops and practices her photography.

She has called Venice home since early childhood and with her debut book, “A table in Venice”, she provides over 100 recipes and brings to life the food of Venice in the most romantic, intriguing and just plain wonderful way.

Skye has said:

"As is the way for those who love to eat, my happiest childhood memories are centred on food. Little has changed for me on that front as I've grown older. I remain the kind of person who rememebers life through what they ate and how it was cooked."
