This month on the podcast we’re bringing you a very special episode—a conversation between our friend, Hugh Mackay and the one and only, Nigella Lawson. In front of a live audience, for an event by our friends at The School of Life, Nigella and Hugh chat about everything from why cooking for others is one of the most significant ways we can show people we take them seriously, to the role of food and self-care, to why the first thing Nigella bought when she moved into her new home was a table. It’s a beautiful ode to the role of food in our lives—how it can bring us all closer together, and ultimately help us to find belonging.
Thank you very much Nigella, Hugh and our friends at the School of Life for allowing us to record this conversation.
