Rukmini Iyer: Author of The Roasting Tin cookbooks and food stylist
My guest today is Rukmini Iyer Rukmini is a former lawyer turned bestselling author of the Roasting Tin series which have now sold over half a million copies. Amongst her army of followers – who call themselves the TinLads. She counts Nigella Lawson as a fan as well as other famous names from Jay Rayner to Judy Murray. The concept of the Roasting Tin books is deceptively simple, Mini’s recipes lure people in with the idea of the one-pot supper. But people return time and time again because the recipes taste even better than the lack of washing up feels. A pioneer of the _and I quote: ‘put everything in a roasting tin and shove it in the oven’ school of cookery, Mini’s fourth cookbook features tasty, no-fuss dishes from across the globe. As well as writing cookbooks, Rukmini styles and writes recipes for numerous brands and publications, including Waitrose, The Guardian and Fortnum and Mason. Of her success and the reaction to her books, Mini says – ‘It’s one thing having fans who are like, "this is great for dinner", but to have fans who are saying that you’ve changed the way they eat is very humbling,’ ‘You never think that something like a cookbook could have that much effect on someone’. Thank you so much for listening. So so many delicious dishes talked about! Don’t forget to go to the website for the full list of episodes plus lots of recipes and you can sign up to the newsletter.

This time we cover everything from Ranj's views on the Corona vaccine to the naughtiest things we've ordered from Deliveroo. We also hear how he and Helen are coping with the current mandemic. That's not a spelling mistake.  Ranj has a new book out, How to Grow Up and Feel Amazing! The No-Worries Guide for Boys. We talk about why he chose to write for lads specifically, how to talk to kids about puberty, and how we can help our sons not to become dickheads when they're older. Obviously, it all descends into filth. Ranj's book is brilliant and it's out on 18th February.  SAFETY NOTICE: This podcast was recorded remotely, which is why it sounds a bit different - sorry about that.

#33 - Grayson Perry
Grayson Perry is a contemporary artist, writer and broadcaster. He is known for his ceramic vases, tapestries and cross-dressing, as well as his observations of the contemporary art scene, and for dissecting British "prejudices, fashions and foibles". Perry's vases have classical forms and are decorated in bright colours, depicting subjects at odds with their attractive appearance. There is a strong autobiographical element in his work, in which images of Perry as "Claire", his female alter-ego, and "Alan Measles", his childhood teddy bear, often appear. He has made a number of documentary television programmes and has curated exhibitions. He has published two autobiographies, Grayson Perry: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl (2007) and The Descent of Man (2016), written and illustrated a graphic novel, Cycle of Violence (2012), written a book about art, Playing to the Gallery (2014), and published his illustrated Sketchbooks (2016). Various books describing his work have been published. In 2013 he delivered the BBC Reith Lectures.
