Exploring her go-to comfort foods through a series of joyous encounters, Grace reflects on the memories they uncover and pays tribute to her parents, the people who taught her what comfort eating truly means. Best known as the bumbling titular estate agent of Stath Lets Flats and long-toothed lover of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag, Jamie’s arrived fresh off the Barbie set armed with his favourite comfort snacks. Shirley’s become TV royalty as head judge on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, but she’d already been ruling the dancefloor for decades. Cosying up with Grace to launch a new season of Comfort Eating is none other than the queen of baking and all our hearts – Nadiya Hussain.

kids who claim to have never read anything longer than a text message are ploughing through my books nagging me for the next one. We all know Graham from his work interviewing megastars on his chatshow, as well as his much loved radio. He talks about his favourite Christmas presents, the magic of childhood Blockbuster trips, his strange times in Miami, and the comfort foods that have seen him through. Live in Ireland and can’t get fish paste 😂 remember fish paste sandwiches made by my Grandma ❤️in Scotland. At times the book felt very short (approximately 200 pages) but unless other categories were added it would have been repetitive so maybe it was the perfect length.

Bringing lashings of comfort and joy to Grace’s house for the final episode of this season is the legendary jazz singer Gregory Porter. It's comfort in book form, it's like having a natter with someone who is older and wiser but doesn't get funny when you suggest eating like a normal human being. This week, Grace heads out of her kitchen and into the home of dance legend Shirley Ballas to cha-cha-chat all things Comfort Eating. Ive watched her on Masterchef for years, praising a well cooked guinea fowl, decadant chcolate tortes and frowning when presented with undercooked lamb and watery sauces.

He joins Grace to chat about his days overseeing Harvester’s coveted salad bar, late-night cheese boards and, as he prepares to release his fourth solo album, the meals that stand out from his days touring the world. She and Grace remember the 90s London club scene, discuss the perils of having a fitness DVD, and how being. Now that Dent makes her living as a restaurant critic and television personality, firmly ensconced in the London liberal elite, all this might feel a bit put on, except that her affection is tangible, her humour tweezer-sharp and the writing as strong as a Christmas stilton. They talk about his childhood, memories of prison, cooking for his husband – and the comfort foods that have seen him through.

One of those things where someone is writing about things that are very specific to them, but also universal in that everyone has their own version of what she's writing about, foods and memories that are intertwined and comfort you, or take you immediately back to a certain time. In Comfort Eating , Grace Dent throws open her kitchen cupboards to reveal why we hold these secret snacks and naughty nibbles so dear to our hearts. Cha Cha Cha-ing her way into Grace’s house this week is comedian and one of this year’s stars of Strictly Come Dancing, Jayde Adams.

As season three comes to an end, Grace brings you a special bonus episode, recorded live at the Podcast Festival in London, with the cheekiest chap from Chelsea, Jamie Laing.Season three is ending with a bang, as Eastenders actor and all-round hun Natalie Cassidy pops over for a chat. And as a throwaway how much money did she get for appearing on Get Me out of Here and then bottling it at the first challenge? Davies’ ‘butterpepperrice’ to Scarlett Moffat’s crushed-Wotsits-topped beans on toast and many, many more . Grace’s guest this week is Georgia Pritchett, the genius behind many of the shows we watch on the telly when we’ve whipped up our bowl of comforting goodness. She hosts the podcast Comfort Eating, which was named the Podcast of the Year at the 2022 British Media Awards.
