Promising more mouth-watering audio, broadcast veteran Nick Grimshaw and much-loved Michelin star chef and restaurateur Angela Hartnett OBE are inviting listeners to join their weekly dinner parties for more riotous fun and hilarious, unfiltered chat.

The series’ first episode featured American comedian, actor and writer Rob Delaney, and more five-star conversations including guests: singer-songwriter Charlotte Church, DJ Scott Mills, TV presenter Alex Jones and comedians Adam Hills, Nish Kumar, Aisling Bea and more.

With the critically acclaimed Dish from Waitrose, S:E Creative Studio has produced the UK’s biggest branded podcast for Waitrose & Partners, for three consecutive series.

The socially-led creative agency and production business created the format, delivered the audio content, design and motion graphics, influencer management, and social video production.

Stylishly produced and presented by five star talent, Dish has consistently been at #1 on the Apple Food Podcast Charts since its launch.

Dish from Waitrose is the UK’s most hospitable food and entertainment show. It is an idea that’s made to be shared with dinner guests, the studio audience and followers at home (or wherever they are listening / watching).

It features a recipe from Waitrose, cooking tips from a Michelin star chef, drinks recommendations from one of our favourite broadcasters, and a meal enjoyed by some of the UK’s favourite celebrities who in turn share their own food and life stories with the audience.

In the next week, our hosts will appear on The One Show, Radio 2 with Dermot O’Leary, Virgin Radio with Chris Evans, and ITV’s This Morning to promote Dish – showing how the show has truly become part of popular culture.

Ben Kerr, Managing Director of S:E Creative Studio, said: “Dish is a number 1 podcast, but it is much more than that, it’s really a social media strategy running across every major platform via Waitrose, host and guest channels.

“Every week we share stories, recipes and cooking tips as we invite the nation to join us at our table for food focused conversation.

“Through it we demonstrate how branded entertainment can reach audiences at scale. We’re delighted that Dish has hit the spot for Waitrose & Partners, for three consecutive series.”

Since it launched in 2022, Dish has found fans in everyone from Greg James and Zoe Ball to Chris Evans and Claudia Winkleman. Spotify gives Dish a listener rating of 4.9/5 and Apple named it one of the best shows of 2022 with video clips for the podcast amassing over 46 million views.

Previous guests include Stanley Tucci, Dame Mary Berry, Dermot O’Leary, Alison Hammond and Hannah Waddingham and with big name guests confirmed for season 3, there’s no slowing down for the popular podcast.

Waitrose Customer Director Nathan Ansell, said: “We’re thrilled Dish from Waitrose is back for a third season.

“The response to the first two seasons has been incredible, and the line-up of guests for this spring and summer is outstanding – listeners are in for a lot more fun and foodie conversation hosted by Nick and Angela.”

Nick Grimshaw said: “So excited to be back for another series of Dish! Getting to work alongside the legendary and hilarious Angela Hartnett has been a total joy.

“I can’t wait to get going on another series. See you in the kitchen.”

Hartnett’s passion for good, honest food and use of the best ingredients shines through as she prepares and serves more easy and delicious Waitrose-inspired recipes while they both interview their special guests.

“Working with Nick on this has been hysterical, I spend the whole time laughing”, said Hartnett.

“What’s not to love about cooking, eating, drinking, and chatting with our dream dinner-party guests? I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do recording it.”
