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 50: MARTHA ORTIZ: TOP MEXICAN CHEF & OWNER OF ELLA CANTA

EPISODE 50: MARTHA ORTIZ: TOP MEXICAN CHEF & OWNER OF ELLA CANTA

My guest today is Martha Ortiz

Martha is a chef and cookbook author who is famous for her imaginative approach to food and her historical research into Mexican food traditions. Having written 8 cookbooks she is passionate about food that shows Mexico’s spirit and sense of identity.

She recently opened her restaurant Ella Canta in London after the success of her restaurant in Mexico City which is regularly listed in Latin America’s top 50 restaurants. 

It really comes as no surprise that Martha is one of Mexico’s most famous celebrity chefs and has a starring role on Top Chef México, when she says such brilliant things as..

‘Chilli is like a lover — you really need to feel its presence”

 

I've made a delicious ceviche recipe inspired by Martha this week and it's perfect for this mini heat wave we are experiencing in the UK. An added bonus is that you don't even need to turn on the oven!
