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 40: TOMMY BANKS: MICHELIN STARRED CHEF AT THE BLACK SWAN OLDSTEAD

My guest today is Tommy Banks

Tommy is a Michelin-starred chef and Great British Menu champion.

He is the head chef at his family restaurant – the black swan, in 0ldstead North Yorkshire. He started cooking at the age of 17 and at just 24 he became the youngest chef in Britain at the time to win a Michelin star. 

Last year Tommy's restaurant The Black Swan was voted #1 Restaurant in the World by Tripadvisor Traveller's Choice Award, the first time since the award launched that a UK restaurant has won.

Tommy has just released his first cookbook, entitled Roots, which is they say, perfect for “foodies, foragers and cookbook collectors”.
