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 6: DELICIOUSLY STELLA AKA BELLA YOUNGER: COMEDIAN

Margie's castaway this week is Bella Younger. 

Bella Younger is the internet sensation: the woman behind the genius instagram account – Deliciously Stella. Deliciously Stella is a parody of those clean eating and wellness instagram accounts. It's become such a big thing she even got a book deal out of it,
Davina Mcall was one of her earliest fans which is not too shabby and she’s gone on to have a podcast, an Edinburgh fringe show and she has a BBC three series. 

I love that Bella tried to sneak the smoked ham and mustard sandwich into every answer but I had to put my school mistress hat on and say no – we need more food choices from you and more we got. She's living the dream with her meal deal where she gets the supermarket sandwich, a packet of quavers and a Diet Coke. You heard it here first. 

I love that for the best dish she has ever eaten she was toying with the idea of something expensive that her dad had bought her..but ultimately she settled on the M&S party food aisle. An original choice. But I agree that those feta and herb parcels are pretty darn delicious. 

I also loved how modest her one luxury item would be – a simple towel. I'm not sure what mine would be? Hmm something to ponder over...

Desert Island Dish: Steak tartare (Soho house), followed by lobster and her mum's flourless chocolate and orange cake

Luxury Item: A towel

Listen to the hilarious Bella / Stella here. It's a goodie:

Please do rate and leave a review on itunes as it really helps! Everytime you do that it boosts the show a little bit more, and helps other people to find me which is key! So thank you! 

So until next week – bye or see you over on my instagram @madebymargie - do come and say hi!
