This week we've got a couple of special guests on the Podcast; Firstly Toby the landlord and co-owner of The Fox & Pheasant pub in Chelsea. Toby's business partner is James Blunt and together they've saved this gem of a boozer from being turned into residential houses that only rich people can afford. Toby's story is super relevant to anyone who either works in the pub/restaurant trade or just misses going into a pub without being interrogated and dressing like a dental nurse. We also chat to one of our favourite producers; Lyn Paxman from www.Somersetescargot.co.uk . Her story is very inspirational to anyone who's got a bit of land and wants to try something different. Unsure about Alpacas and Goats Lyn chose to farm snails and has made a neat little business out of these garden gastro delights. She too has struggled with Covid and the setbacks for the F&B trade but she's dug her heels in and is determined to make a go of it. Hear her story this week. Jaimie and Tom will talk about what they've been cooking, upcoming adventures driving Land Rovers from Exmoor Trim and Gators from Mason Kings as well as some thoughts on Christmas content and food tips for the upcoming seasonal period...assuming we get one that is!
