Brace yourselves, Mike did some SCIENCE RESEARCH and managed to find some facts about one of his ULTIMATE favourite foods – peanut butter. Meanwhile, Barry educates the others on the legal hunting of Parrots and Iguanas, Jamie explores another restaurant service idea and Ben makes us think about the way we sleep and exercise.

Best Soundbite: “I mean, the Uber drivers can’t even find my house which is on a main road, how on earth are they going to find a secluded beach in the middle of St Lucia!?” – Mike Huttlestone

    Dudes: THE. IGUANAS. IN. PUERTO. RICO. ARE. A. PROBLEM.

    People bought them as pets, got bored of them and released them into the wild. It’s a tropical island, with no natural predators and they have gone MENTAL IN TROPICAL PARADISE! It’s to the point that they were incentivizing killing the iguanas because they are a pest, grow to be huge (I’ve seen some 5ft, head to tail), eat crops and cause damages to cars when they suddenly run out in the road (like freaking deer). The meat is sort of like alligator, but not as chewy. They eat them in other countries, but it’s a bit of a weird to get into it since it’s a relatively new practice to the island. Then again, Hurricane Maria killed an awful lot of them, and, let’s be honest PR has bigger humanitarian problems at the moment than dealing with the exploding iguana population. (Seamless link to PR cuisine on the channel? Please!)

    Oh, and linen is the bomb! As a girl from the Caribbean, you learn to appreciate the cool, lightness of linen clothes.

      As a biologist I found it so cool that iguanas taste like chicken but smell like fish~ evolutionarily they sit in between fish and birds and this was so perfect 😮

    Before I continue the podcast I just have to say I love the idea of spontaneous picnic delivery. Imagine sitting at your desk at work and some random guy shows up with a basket, “it’s time for picnic” 😂

  3. Man, I hate the thought that they’re shooting iguanas!! Although if they’re wreaking havoc on crops I understand that. I was in St Lucia scuba diving and one of my favorite things were the iguanas and geckos… Although, I never saw a picnic basket truck driving about. Excellent job guys, thanks!! 💙💜

    I love how Mike started his peanut pearl argument knowing he was wrong, but by the end he had convinced himself that calcium carbono was a thing and can create a pearl inside a peanut by rotting. I haven’t finished watching Mike’s part but I know for a FACT that the lie is the pearl argument 😀

S4 E10 – Is MSG not actually bad for you?

There’s a load of negative stigma attached to the consumption of MSG (Monosodium Glutomate) which is a naturally occurring flavour enhancer that’s usually used in take-away foods. But what if we were to tell you it’s not actually bad for you? In this episode the guys delve into the subject and see if they can taste the difference between a normal dish and one where MSG has been added.

S4 E9 – Is eating seasonally worth it?

It can be really difficult to keep on top of what’s in season and even more difficult when you realise it might actually be more economical to eat veggies from further away! Baz whips up some *ahem* delicious smoothies to taste this week and the boys discuss some of their fave London spots.

S4 E6 – Taste testing aphrodisiacs?!

Of course this podcast had to be valentine’s themed…kind of. This episodes explores weird and wonderful aphrodisiacs and as expected, things get a little bit (very) weird. P.S. this entire podcast theme was Jamie’s idea…can you tell?

S4 E5 – Would you eat insects if the world depended on it?!

S4 E5 – Would you eat insects if the world depended on it?!

The future of food is constantly changing and perceptions of food vary drastically from country to country. What may be considered as a delicacy in one country could be seen as revolting in another. An interesting topic that’s been cropping up recently is the use of insects as a more sustainable form of protein. What are your thoughts?
