Happy New Year! It’s our final episode of this series, and this time the Canadian Queen of comedy popped over for lunch just before she gave birth to her 3rd child. With just 2 weeks to go Katherine was absolutely glowing and was unbelievably calm and chilled, in fact so calm she thinks she’s actually already dead and this is her afterlife! Katherine gave us her story of growing up in Canada, the Ice Cream Barbie cakes she would have for her birthdays, the story of her Louis Theroux documentary, and her… big… theory about Pete Davidson! Her new series ‘Romantic Getaway’ with Romesh Ranganathan is out now on Sky Comedy & Now TV. Thank you for being a fabulous end of series guest Katherine! x Hosted on Acast.

What a lovely morning of coffee and cake with the divine Nadiya Hussain!

Thank you Nadiya for being such a fantastic guest and speaking so candidly. It was a really inspiring morning. Listen to the episode wherever you get your podcasts! Hosted on Acast.

By now you know that mum’s chicken soup only comes out for the big guns… and this week was exactly that.. no pressure mum - we finally got Paul Hollywood!Despite mums soggy bottom Tart Nomande, we somehow managed to win him over & had the most wonderful afternoon talking a LOT about food. Lennie even got a handshake. Paul told us all about how he learnt to bake on the job in his dads bakery, his love of custard, snuggling steak out of work in loaves of bread, how he made it on the Telly and sucking on salty chips! Mums waited a long time for this one. Have a listen! Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

From one Starstruck favourite to another…Rose Matafeo everyone !! I’m back in old rainy Blighty, and returning - in fine form if I say so myself - to cooking duty! Whilst gazing at the Matafeo powerhouse, I made a lovely slow roast chicken from Alison Roman's book ‘Nothing Fancy’ and mum did a Saffy's LA inspired salad - it was perfect and minimal effort. Rose spoke to us about growing up in New Zealand, resenting reggae in her teens and her love of Goat Curry. She also offers up Samoan dishes and her secret to the best fry up. We ranked meats, Rom Coms and fell in love to be honest. Enjoy this episode. Go go go! Hosted on Acast.

This week we welcome Nikesh Patel to Table Manners. We all fell in love with him as Tom Kapoor in Starstruck, and now we can watch him play a cop in the new crime thriller ‘The Devil’s Hour’, starring opposite Peter Capaldi. Nikesh came over, before a kids birthday party, for a spot of Lennie’s ultimate….vegan cuisine. Whilst eating a stew, we talked about his mum’s fabulous Gujarati food and her famous yellow Dahl, falling in love, bleaching his hair at school, Eminem and everything else in between.

Big Zuu meets Big Len!!This week we have double BAFTA winner and all round hilarious person, Big Zuu, on Table Manners. We chatted all about Big Eats over mum’s - rather tough - short rib beef & baked potatoes with sour cheese and chive stuffing.  Big Zuu talks to us about his mum's Okra soup, his love of Beyoncé and Karaoke & what he ate after his big BAFTA win. This is when the podcast is an absolute gift ; meeting a stranger, eating a thing or two and having fantastic conversation - even over a chewy short rib - and then falling head over heels for them!

S14 Ep 4: Baz Luhrmann

S14 Ep 4: Baz Luhrmann

2022-10-1958:054

This is a blockbuster Table Manners episode. Having seen Romeo + Juliet 7 times in the cinema, and frequently quoting Strictly Ballroom, to have the genius, Baz Luhrmann in our kitchen was an absolute honour. Both of us are huge fans of his work so we were thrilled to ask him a hundred questions about Elvis, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and all the other brilliant projects he has been involved in. Baz whirlwinded into Lennie’s for some baked salmon, wine and a barrel of laughs. We talk about his love of ballroom dancing, good luck pearls from Australia, on set catering, Elvis & his obsession with a caviar.Thank you so much Baz. We LOVED the Elvis movie and we loved having two precious hours with you. X Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

What do you cook for a Masterchef judge?!? That is the question. This week we are joined by mum’s favourite, John Torode. And it’s about time. After a LOT of back and forth on the menu, mum settled on some staples; her infamous chicken soup followed by Lebanese lamb then a damson galette and olive oil ice cream. It was very gorgeous.This is a foodie episode, where we talk about John’s favourite chefs, the dish he was most proud of making, his wife’s sausage and sourdough bake and his secret tip for making cheese toasties extra crispy (I can confirm it works). This year, he was made an MBE & is celebrating 40 years of professional cooking, what an amazing achievement. What a total honour it was to cook for and host this wonderful man, who showered us in cheese, cider, chocolate and flowers.  Such a great evening. Listen now. X Hosted on Acast.

Rina Sawayama everyone… I am a huge fan of this amazing woman, we met in Paris years ago on a front row (daaaahling) and I have watched her become a complete icon. We are THRILLED to have her on Table Manners. Rina educates us about Japanese cuisine; chirashi bowls, eating fresh Kinmedai fish, and her mum’s signature dish of Tonkatsu… delicious! And we learn her poaching technique. We talk about the time she met Lady Gaga, lactose, art being her hobby & karaoke with Harry Styles. A dreamy episode… enjoy! X Hosted on Acast.

We are wrapping up this series of Table Manners with a very special bonus episode thanks to our pals at Sainbury’s. Last week, we hosted a summer soirée in London to celebrate the Taste the Difference summer range. What was not to love? Plenty of picky bits, ‘lo-fi dining’, a generous amount of rosé, a very loud - and well read and opinionated - audience & the wonderful Vick Hope as our guest. It was a total hoot, we loved listening to Vick talk about food and books and it felt like a very special summer evening. We’re off to enjoy our holidays and will be back in the autumn for a new series. Thanks to all our listeners for being the best, have a fabulous summer darlings X Hosted on Acast.

It’s all in there. Enjoy! x Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
As part of our live shows, we held a little Q&A in the second half… well I tell you what listeners - you are all really quite filthy !! For the next two weeks we’ve put together some of our favourite moments from the Q&As, and we have been cackling! We hope they make you laugh as much as they did us. In this week’s episode, there’s a ‘shag, marry, avoid’ theme going on & we discuss what mum’s boxing ring music would be… oh we do have a laugh with you lot! Enjoy! X Hosted on Acast.

Telling your mother to "f--- off", let alone on a podcast? Appalling behaviour. Sort yourself out.

Love your podcast so much, I listen to it while I cook for famous people. It makes me laugh a lot. Plus your adverts really do work, I bought the bloody Haagen Dazs mini tubs of ice cream today and have a minor obsession with whispering angel rose. Best podcast I would say
