We’ve just come to the end of our FIRST series of podcasts so it’s time to start thinking about what to do next…

You guys always send us questions so we thought that it would be a good idea to answer some of them in podcasts over the next couple of weeks – what have you ALWAYS wanted to ask Ben, Barry, Mike, Jamie and James??

Each of them will be having a mini Q&A so leave your BEST, most interesting questions down below…we’ll answer anything!


  1. ruba

    Here’s a question for all of you-
    How do you manage your time or what does a typical week look like for the Sorted boys and the crew?
    You do videos, podcasts, cook books, local, national, and international travel, supper clubs and I’m not even counting all of the behind the scene efforts that go into this. How many hours a week do you work and how do you find time for your personal lives/kids/going to theater (looking at you Ben)?

  2. Sara_dawn

    You can only choose one seasoning for the rest of your cooking days…salt, pepper, or citrus zest. Which one would you choose?!

  3. James07

    you guys should do a collaboration with the food busker! 🙂

  4. In twenty words or less, describe what truffle tastes like

  5. JOSH119

    Well…..I’ve been watching SORTED for a while now and I was watching your old video on making a butter beer and wasn’t Ben supposed to do a live reading when the video hit 20K likes?????? – Its actually hit 53K likes.

    Hope to see Ben read the book 🙂

  6. Citrine

    I started watching you YouTube channel recently and really enjoy the chemistry and the ideas you all come up with. It made me wonder if you would ever consider a visit to Australia to try out our native produce. From bush tomatoes to lillypilly and kangaroo to emu, we have a huge variety that you wouldn’t see in U.K. outside a specialist restaurant (if there is one). We also have many feral animals (like camel) and introduced fruits and vegetables to make things interesting.

  7. SusuK

    Hello. New on this channel 😀 Have you ever done or thinking of doing cooking themed by music??

    For excample: 1) 3 guys, one dish, and each makes the same dish in the beat of different sing song

  8. KriPli

    HELP! I can’t sotp wtaching Sorted! I am watching for three days straight now! What do I do to detox from this cooking thunderstorm! I would really like to cook or bake something, but I am just watching and watching! Is it possible to die of hunger watching cookery show? Thanks for hlep.

    • franceshnni

      I feel you..I watch it after work, when I go to bed, when I wake up before going to work and who knows when this cycle will stop!

  9. Nah651

    I’m New so I’m not sure if this has been asked, but what song/songs do you put on for different moods? or what your go to make me happy song?

  10. BurgerBoi04

    What does Ben think about Jodie Whittaker being cast as the first female doctor?

  11. Mint888

    You guys should do a best coffee and donuts!
    If you can, definitely do some tasting in the US, especially east coast. New Jersey has some cool donut and coffee places on the northern Jersey Shore like Broad Street Donut Co., Purple Glaze Donuts, Top That! Donuts, Rook Coffee Roasters, and Booskerdoo, Coffee Coral!

  12. Yumi

    London’s best ice cream! I hope to see Amorino is on the list…

  13. AshleyBernstein

    1. What is the biggest sacrifice each of you had to make for Sorted?
    2. If you had the power to change anything you touched into one kind of food (like Midas with gold) what food would you want it to be?
    3. Choose one word to describe each of the other guys

  14. venusshine

    Let’s go from food to drinks 🙂
    What is your favourite drink, as in cocktail and pure spirit?
    Did you ever develope your own drink?

  15. marityne

    Going off Mike’s questions about changing a moment in your past, if you could go back and experience a moment again without changing anything which moment would you choose? Wedding, birth of a child, best meal ever, etc.?

  16. Wolfgirl81

    Heres a question!

    If you could go to anywhere in the world to a Cafe, Bakery, bar, restaurant etc where would it be?

  17. SuperfantasticA

    Can you do an Indian Food Battle
    – Bhatura and Chola
    – Dosa / Idli
    – Pani Pori
    – Dahi Vada
    – Kulfi

  18. Jessica K.

    Opening up a pub has been mentioned a couple of times…When that happens, who would do what? Would you still continue to produce YouTube videos as well?

  19. morganroberts2012

    How about this for a challenge; 24 hours, 26.2 dishes but instead of doing London again, you travel from London to Paris, finishing with the restaurant in the Eiffel Tower?

  20. Athenium

    Hello gorgeous,
    Just wondering if Barry and Ben realise the is a Destial slash fic (sexy, sexy, man on man action involving characters from Supernatural), that the author has based off of their “chemistry” while work in the kitchen together?
    Are Barry and Ben more than best of friends?

  21. Enabler

    I know you guys are based in London but would you be interested in taking you show on the road? If possible I’d love to see the best foods in other places in the UK and Ireland like Edinburgh, Newcastle, York, Manchester, Liverpool, Belfast, Dublin etc.

  22. Deanbf

    If you guys weren’t doing sorted, where would you guys be?

  23. Daniellersmith58@gmail.com

    I am a little new the Sorted world so sorry if I ask any questions that have already been answered in the past… :p

    1. Just for fun where do you guys think the other team members would be right now if Sorted was never created. Would you all still be close friends? What would your eating habits be like?
    2. Could we get some insight on the behind the scenes crew?? How did they join the team? Has this experienced changed the way they cook and eat?
    3. If you had to choose only one meat to eat for the rest of your life what would it be? Beef, chicken, pork…squirrel? 😉

  24. So I am really upset that there is no podcast this week, so I am going to spend I would normally be listening to ask ridiculous questions. Hold on yours or someone else’s pants these are going to get silly. ( but I do want answers)

    1.) What is the worst place in London you have eaten?

    2.) What brand of shampoo do you all use?

    3.) Is it true that Barry will only wear his socks inside out?

    4.) Have you ever bought sweets or comics for yourself?

    5.) Have you ever bought a toy or game for yourself?

    6.) What is your favourite board game?

    7.) Have you ever been tempted or have gone back to university to get another degree?

    8.) What is your opinion of trump? (The sound not the potus)

    9.) Why did you wait until the Friday to tell us there is no podcast? ( you could have told us earlier instead of making us wait until the end of the week for the podcast just to be let down)

    10.) Besides Ben’s belly button piercing do any of you have any other piercings?

    11.) What is the best/worst birthday present you have had from the other sorted food guys?

    12.) What is the best/worst Christmas present from the other sorted food guys?

    13.) What is the best/worst present from a direct family member?

    14.) What brand of Shampoo does Barry’s nan use?

    15.) What family do you all have still living? (Although they might have passed out with disappointment of there not being a podcast this week!)

    • lord_is

      oh my god, is this true that Ben has a belly button piercing?
      Most unsexy thing I ever heard!

  29. Shilpa93

    Hey there!
    Everyone seems to be encountering issues with YouTube at the moment. Do you guys ever think that you’ve had enough? What do y’all want to do beyond YouTube?

  30. Alme13

    -What are your favourite songs?
    -Barry, how many tattoos do you have? Can you tell us something about them?

  31. _redshortsarecool_

    How is Ollie? Will he want to make more appearances on YouTube?
    How long is your commute?
    Specifically to Barry: Are you… USELESS OR NOT? YOU decide! 😂😂
    Also, this is not so much of a question as it is a demand: JAMES, PLEASE TRY AND DO A SCOTTISH ACCENT FOR US!!

      • _redshortsarecool_

        I don’t think that’s really a Scottish accent… it’s more of the usual RP with some words being pronounced in a slightly Scottish way. I don’t remember which FridgeCam this was, Byron one of the more festive ones, Mike did a voiceover for James in “Comment of the week”, and THAT was a true Scottish accent. I’d like to see James try that kind of accent!
