If I could sum up Felicity Cloake's lifestyle in two words, it would be: solo glamour. From cooking up solo dining feasts to taking an independent six-week cycling holiday across France (albeit joined by pals at intervals along the way), the Guardian food writer and author truly lives her philosophy that, in her words, 'you are worth eating something nice for on your own'. I love and have been thoroughly inspired by the tips for solo dining she shares on this episode, which all alonement fans need to hear about. I was equally nodding along as she talked candidly about loneliness as something that can occur even when you're in the physical presence of others. All in all, many a fascinating morsel (forgive me) in this episode – I hope you enjoy listening.
Felicity's New Statesman article referenced towards the beginning of the episode is 'Solo dining is on the rise. And it's easy to see why' – you can read it here.
