Podcast: Olive Magazine

This week we have a special podcast recorded by editor Laura at Wilderness Festival, in Oxfordshire where she catches up with two of the chefs hosting feasts at the festival. We hear from Andrew Clarke of St Leonard’s in Shoreditch about the joys of live fire cooking, his own battles with mental health and why cooking and being a chef saved his life. Then Laura talks to Yossi Elad co-founder of The Palomar in London about Israeli cooking, his incredible 40-year career and why he can’t quite retire yet.
