Our round-up of the best new and established food podcasts.

Our obsession with food knows no end. Bring on the TV shows, the books, the blogs, the Instagram feeds, the Pinterest boards and, yes, the podcasts too. Here are some of our favourites.

Food Disclosure with Rosie Lovell
Created and hosted by the naturally effervescent food writer, cook and owner of delis in Peckham and Brixton, Rosie Lovell, Food Disclosure is a brilliant new podcast that describes itself as a “half hour of kitchen-table style nattering”. Stories, food likes and dislikes and other broad-reaching forays are shared with a generally cool and creative bunch with guests including bloggers, journos and DJs such as Luke Howard (of the Horsemeat Disco).

Food Programme with Dan Saladino
We buy more cookbooks, watch more television shows and, ahem, take more pictures of food than our parents ever did, but do we know the full story of how our food is produced and the impact of our buying decisions? A long-running and multi-award winning programme running on Radio 4, Food Programme aims to investigate “every aspect of the food we eat” with recent highlights including Eat to Run and African Food.

Olive Magazine by Olive Magazine
Olive magazine clearly has a lot of fun with its podcast – the whole editorial team gets involved, taking it turns to host, and there is a real mix of guests and information, for example how to make charcuterie at home, why goat should be on your shopping list and cocktail making secrets from The Savoy.

The Kitchen Cabinet by Jay Rayner
Hosted by the ever-ebullient Jay Rayner on Radio 4, The Kitchen Cabinet is a hugely popular culinary panel show that answers questions pitched by audiences from some of the UK’s most loved food locations. Now in its 20th series, the show has over 1.5 million listeners and has been dubbed ‘The culinary version of Gardener’s Question Time but with slightly looser bra straps’. Tune in to the new series starting this Saturday.

At the Kitchen Table by Diana Henry
Host of the Telegraph’s first ever food podcast is award-winning Stella columnist and author Diana Henry, who presents At the Kitchen Table. Still in its early days, this podcast has so far seen Henry interviewing culinary names including Rick Stein, Ottolenghi, Tom Kerridge, and most recently, Ruby Tandoh (of Great British Bake Off), delving into their professional and home lives with candour, warmth and a shared love of food.

The Food Talks by Honey & Co.
Opened by Sarit Packer (Ottolenghi’s ex pastry chef, no less) in 2013, Honey & Co. has become one of Soho’s most well-loved restaurants, and this is where, in front of a small group of guests, its podcast, ‘The Food Talks’, is hosted. Inviting guests ranging from cooks and makers to waiters, writers, drinkers and thinkers, they share a glass of wine and tell a story of their life in food.
