Comedian Nish Kumar, gnocchi with roasted red pepper and chilli pesto
This week Nick and Angela welcome Nish Kumar to Dish HQ.
Nish is a critically acclaimed comic who has won rave reviews and prestigious award nominations for his stand-up. Away from the comedy circuit, he is a regular on TV shows like 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Live at the Apollo and Taskmaster, and can often be heard presenting The News Quiz on BBC Radio 4.
This year, you may have caught him on the hilarious Sky TV series Hold the Front Page, alongside Josh Widdicombe, or heard his brand-new political podcast, Pod Save the UK, from the makers of the hugely successful Pod Save America.
Angela Harnett leads a masterclass in Italian cooking on this episode of Dish, making gnocchi from scratch. (For the rest of us, it’s available readymade at Waitrose) The meal is paired with a delicious white wine, Triade Bianco.
Nish Kumar brings plenty of laughter to the table, discussing food (the best meal he’s had in India), family (his parents' ploy to make him grow up) and friendship (what he really thinks of Ed Gamble and James Acaster).
Just so you know, our podcast might contain the occasional mild swear word or adult theme.
We can’t all have a Michelin star chef in the kitchen, but you can ask Angela for help. Send your dilemmas to email@example.com and she’ll try to answer in a future episode.
Dish is a S:E Creative Studio production for Waitrose & Partners.
