    Truely enjoyed this podcast! And being from Southern Africa, I just loved the “boom shakalaka” reference at the begining! Thanks Guys, always enjoy your insets 😁

    Fun fact – the carrot propaganda wasn’t just random misdirection, the main purpose was to throw the Germans off the fact that the British had developed radar.

    As you are working on your cookbook: bucket list, what are some bucket list FOOD experiences you would love to try. So not just a food, but experience that focuses around the food. For example, I would love to experience a proper Japanese tea.

    It’s really a shame if Turing Hitler into a woman didnt work. That was so 2017 in 1942.

    Loved this podcast! learnt some stuff, guessed the Hitler one too!

    I have a format idea, it wouldn’t be one you’d do often, but what about a cook along? we only see the edited video normally, it would be fun to watch a format from start to finish and see bit’s we wouldn’t normally!

    I also have a fact one of the guys could use: The ‘other white meat’ was almost hippo. Pork is now known advertised as ‘the other white meat’ but in the early 20th century, America faced food shortages and considered Hippo as they lived in the Louisiana bayou, re-branding was also considered naming then ‘lake cows’ but over time congress kept pushing it aside in favor for other topics and eventually ‘land cows’ were favored instead.

    There’s more info but that’s the cliff notes

      Lake cows?? Wow, I’ve definitely learned something new!

    “Hey if we all change seats no one will notice that we are wearing the same clothes as last time” 😉
    I love pass it on, being a cook when the three of you come up for a turn I’m either impressed with your thought process, or yelling at the screen wondering how you could possibly think that’s a good idea! 😂

    The forth one in beer is grain (mostly malted barley), not sugar.

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 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?
