Anna Barnett visits the north London kitchen of chef and TV presenter Andi Oliver and her daughter, Miquita, in this episode of her podcast, The Filling. Together they explore Andi’s career through music (best friend is Neneh Cherry klaxon!) to food broadcasting, and a certain mother/daughter road trip through Cambodia where the driving definitely was not shared (you do have a license right, Miquita?). Along the way we learn about a new restaurant venture with Fred Sirieix, talk inspirational black influenced cooking, and that you can never have too much gravy.


“Let’s get down to the nitty gritty – she doesn’t let me in her kitchen.” Miquita

“The main rule in the kitchen is don’t put your hand in the food.” Andi

“Oh Lord have mercy – where’s my gravy?” Andi

“Add marmite and then sexuality happens.” Andi

“Nobody wants bad vibe food – don’t put your bad vibes over my chicken!” Andi

“Everything is soul food if it’s done right.” Andi
