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
