The secret’s out…sometimes more than one of these are filmed in a day. You have Jamie to thank for ruining that. This week is all about eating shoes, most hated foods, and the fact that Andy Murray lives off a diet of haggis and deep fried Mars bars. True fact.

Best soundbite: “If you make a tomato hat and then come to it at the end of the day…boom, you’ve got sun dried tomatoes” – Jamie Spafford

    It’s always interesting seeing how food likes/dislikes change. I hated carrots, brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cauliflower as a kid. Turns out I just hated how Mom made them. I eat all of those on a regular basis now. Brussels sprouts are now one of the foods I’ll eat anyway I can get them. I find asparagus too bitter though and cilantro tastes like soap.

    For books I’ve got The Culinary Imagination: from myth to modernity by Sandra M. Gilbert. Haven’t had a chance to get started yet, but it looks good.

    I didn’t like olives either, but my Bisnonna (great-grandma) shamed me into eating them (love that italian family) and eventually I just got used to eating them and now I like them

    Another question for the Grilled segment: What are your guilty pleasures?

    Hate peanut butter but I learnt to love sprouts, purple ones are sweeter than the usual green, you don’t get that bitter taste as strongly from them.

    Can’t remember whether you guys have done this as a fact before but it’s one my go-to food facts. It’s quite possible that you, Jamie, will never like Brussel Sprouts. It’s actually been scientifically proven that there’s a chemical in sprouts that causes a reaction with a chemical in some humans so that causes them to not like them. But some people who do like sprouts don’t have this bodily chemical so therefore there’s no reaction. 🙂

Last Christmas, Team Sorted celebrated at a restaurant offering various small tasting plates. The food was finely crafted, but every person left astounded at the final bill. So where is the line on overpriced foods?

What are your guys thoughts?

S4 E10 – Is MSG not actually bad for you?

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?

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?!

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?
