This episode, Jimi and Alison are joined by Joanne Harris, the author of more than 20 bestselling works of fiction. Joanne was born above a Yorkshire sweet shop and food flavours many of her novels – most famously Chocolat, which was turned into an Oscar-nominated film. She talks about why French food is part of her cultural identity, what it was like to become famous overnight, and the quiet pleasure of growing her own vegetables.
Joanne’s latest book is Ten Things About Writing. You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram @Joannechocolat.
