Comfort eating with Grace Dent is all about what you eat when comfortable at home but from your favourite celebrities’ perspectives. In her new book Grace Dent explores the particular way in which we all, from time to time, eat for comfort.

Growing up in working class Carlisle in the 80s, Grace is passionate about Findus Crispy pancakes, potato waffles, Ambosia rice pudding, oven chips and Bisto gravy. Grace’s guest on Comfort Eating this week is one of the most famous faces on Channel 4 News for more than 20 years, Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

In episode three of Comfort Eating with Grace Dent, Rafe joins Grace for a sit down over his favourite sofa snack. Most importantly, she looks at what we shove, flat-palmed, into our faces when nobody’s looking and what this tells us about the human condition. For the last time this series Grace opens her door to another Comfort Eating guest, and to finish in style she welcomes James Norton into her home to discuss all things delicious. Grace’s guest this week is Georgia Pritchett, the genius behind many of the shows we watch on the telly when we’ve whipped up our bowl of comforting goodness.

Grace Dent may be a high end food critic, but she’s not forgotten her humble beginnings, especially when it comes to food. And now I'm off to think about what food I'd bring onto her podcast as my comfort food (let's be realistic, it'd be a buffet of beige). Davies’s butter pepper rice to Scarlett Moffat’s crushed Wotsit-topped beans on toast and many, many more . Join Guardian food critic and her celebrity guests, as she throws the cupboard doors open and chats life through food. Bringing lashings of comfort and joy to Grace’s house for the final episode of this season is the legendary jazz singer Gregory Porter.The tone of the podcast is: warm, comforting, chatty, feel good, cheering, heart warming, comical and amusing.

It's reassuring that the food critic for a national newspaper can still enjoy white sliced bread and Dairylea triangles. After treating Grace to a two-course surprise snack, Tamsin talks about growing up with an older dad, her secret Friday Night Dinner food strategies and the strange moments of joy to be found within grief. Mae tells Grace about the childhood joy of a freshly made souvlaki, the role cooking played in their recovery from drug addiction, and their Netflix series Feel Good.In Comfort Eating , Grace Dent throws open her kitchen cupboards to reveal why we hold these secret snacks and naughty nibbles so dear to our hearts. Jon’s best known for going on adventures with unlikely people, culminating in hit books such as The Men Who. Not only did this book make me incredibly hungry for a veritable buffet of beige (god bless British tapas), but I tripped and fell enough to subscribe to Grace's podcast and become even more convinced that Cadbury Dairy Milk, Tayto Crisps and Guinness may be the meal of of the Gods.

I absolutely loved this book, essentially a love letter to all the foods we’re told we should feel guilty about eating - (white) bread, (white) pasta, butter, cheese, potatoes. It’s a wonderfully scrumptious, life-affirming journey through the foods that really mean the most to us. She tells Grace about her childhood in an Irish horsing community, being raised almost entirely by women, becoming successful later in life – and the comfort foods that have seen her through. Jayde and Grace discuss Jayde’s Bristolian beginnings, what it takes to become a fishmonger, and what makes the perfect dinner party.He talks about some of the most important moments in his life – and the comfort food that has seen him through them. Comfort Eating finds Grace Dent inviting readers to her kitchen table to discover what makes the things we really eat so delicious. This is a book that’s not just about comfort but also sadness, suffering and grief; the first series of Comfort Food was recorded just after Dent had nursed her mother during the last weeks of her life, and there is a tinge of heartache to much of what’s described here.
