Hoovering – Episode 14: Cariad Lloyd

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.


If you had a spare few pennies a month I’ve set up on this amazing site called Patreon where I can swap really fun extras and perks with you, in exchange for financial help with continuing and growing this mighty podcast – thank you in advance – have a look



This week I’m stuffing a load of VERY YUMMY doughnuts down myself with the majestic Cariad Lloyd – you’ll know her off of the telly, Peep Show and Murder In Successville and QI and that or maybe off of Austentatious, the live improvised full Jane Austen novel on monthly at the Savoy in the West End right now.

ANYWAY – here we get pretty serious about jam. There are some shout outs to Cariad’s very own 1950s wife Ben and hell hath no fury compared to her absolute distain for avocados. She gives us so many hot tips. And listen to the end for some bonus cameos from my housemates.


Honourable Mentions

Doughnut Time UK is where the beasts were from. And Cariad’s favourite jam is Single Variety. She also mentions Victoria Bakery in High Barnet.  The pub she talks about, I believe as the Scotsman in Whitstable is this place, The Sportmen. Lastly, here’s a link to London’s Dominique Ansel with those filthy sounding croughnuts.
