The Dream Menu

In this double episode, we create our dream menus – A full 4 course meal made up of the best dishes we’ve ever eaten after traveling to 95 countries.

Our dream menu special – celebrating reaching our 50th episode of The Dish podcast, is a homage to one of our favourite food comedy podcasts, Off Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster. On their show, they are joined each week by a different guest who describes their own dream menu, made up of whatever dishes they want from their life and from around the globe, brought to them in an imaginary way by the genie waiter, James Acaster.

On our show, we (Tommo & Megsy) interview each other about our perfect dream menu options from all over the world. It’s going to get a little ridiculous…


Part 1: We describe our favourite starters, and main courses and the stories behind them.

Part 2: Tommo reveals his main course selection, plus our top desserts and drinks.

SPOILER ALERT: Photos of our favourite dishes are displayed below. It’s best to listen to the episodes first :-)
