Our Favourite Food & Drink Podcasts to Listen to Whilst In Lockdown
It’s happening again: unfortunately this week the UK is going back into lockdown. Whilst that might mean you will not be able to dine out at your favourite restaurant or sip a drink at a bar, it does mean you can get creative at home. If you are looking for some inspiration to create a delicious treat, then there are some fantastic food and drink podcasts to help stimulate you to try something new.
Podcasts are a great way of passing the day and can be listened to around your schedule. They are also a great way to while away an evening and can be a great partner to cook along with in the evening. If you are looking to tuck into some new podcasts over the coming weeks, here are some of our favourites:
