How incredibly insensitive and ignorant but maybe done on purpose to interview and air this episode with Gary Lineker now . I have been a loyal listener to The Food Programme for years but why air this now , given Gary Linekers outspoken and in breach of BBC guidelines , public views over...Read full review »

Great program on bitter greens and health. So why is the BBC Food Programme hosting ads from one of the most destructive companies in the world, and the promoter of the least nutritious food in the galaxy, McDonald’s? Are sponsors for healthy food that hard to find? McDonald’s is unsustainable,...Read full review »

I love the variety of subjects discussed on this podcast, and the fascinating stories. It offers a great balance of experts and personal, relatable stories.

I’ve listened to all the episodes having found you just before COVID hit. Such a great learning resource for foodies and very entertaining too. Keep up the great work team 😀

Love listening to this podcast! I learn so much as the information is so digestible. Would you considering doing a mini series on the origins and history of certain foods? Perhaps an episode per month of a vegetable/fruit in season. Like the history of the tomato - where it came from in the...Read full review »

I love your content but here in Canada the shows are now bookended with ads for gambling. Very much not BBC!
Noniesgirl via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/29/23
Superbly researched program/0podcast. Diverse range of topics presented expertly by numerous people involved in past and future food supply.

My oven is heated with propane, a very expensive gas. So too, I’m currently looking for a new gas stove, costs run around $1500. new. I’ve always had a slow cooker and microwave, now I’ve added an a air fryer and a pressure cooker, all run on electricity. The monies and time spent is amazingly...Read full review »

It’s not long enough! I want the episodes to be at least twice as long - I love them! Keep it up!

Nice to listen to but could use some improvement but on the whole this is not so bad
super star 113 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/16/23
So inspiring! So many folks taking leaps of faith to make a better world through the medium of food.

Sheila Dillon is at the helm. Sadly Dan doesn’t cut it for me. No bite and rather bland. I do hope he’s not limbering up to take over. Also the latest episode about Avocados -if I hear the presenter say ‘WOW’ one more time…
sigmund47 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/10/22
This poddy is a non stop learning journey. The more you listen (even when repeating previous episodes) the more you learn and hear new things. Highly recommend for anyone involved or interested in food in one way or another. You won’t regret it.

Should have come here to Newfoundland and had a feed of fish and brewis!
Robinwild1 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/14/21
Jaega does not have much ability as a presenter yet. She needs more insight, more welly and more polish too. She is unable to debate issues with her interviewees and it makes for uncomfortable listening, especially as her delivery is still flat and unengaging. Hopefully she will blossom in those...Read full review »

I am a long time listener of The Food Programme but like a bag of pre-packed supermarket lettuce, it can be very hit and miss - very mixed and sometimes crisp and fresh and at other times, rather limp and tasteless. It is fair to say that they cover a really wide range of topics and presenting...Read full review »

Whether you are a passionate home cook or a lover of restaurant food; a fresh fruit aficionado or a devotee of the supermarket ready meal - there’s an episode of The Food Programme to suit your tastes. I’m a long-time listener to this podcast and still look forward to each week’s episode. The...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to the Food Prog for 2 years. What a wonderful discussion and insight into current food thoughts and practices.
Keirapilly via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/20/21
Same old BBC pushing the insane agenda. Avoid!
Psektuepr via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/25/21
A dour presenting style contrasted with ramped up sound design from an audio library of the ‘bleeding obvious’. Xmas edition particularly bad for this. Cheer up & cut the tunes - we know what Christmas sounds like.

Great breadth and depth into the UK and global food environment with a wonderful range of topics.
Az_raw via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 08/31/20
It feels like this podcast is trying to plug a low carb diet and interviewing highly controversial people such as dr Aseem Malhotra. It puts me off listening to its other podcasts even if they are not diet related.
nat2goodall via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/17/20
Great podcast and I find the information relevant and insightful. Can you please stop the advert at the end for the IMC podcast? The presenters are insufferably smug and condescending.
SH20161220 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/10/20
Needs an update! The presents and format are now sounding very tired.
Steve the food via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/09/20
I always learn new things listening to this and it is a great podcast to download for a walk or journey. Loved the ice cream episode and the recent one on bonfire food. Also they get really interesting people. Joe Wicks changed my mind about him and the Nigella episode with Diana Henry was great....Read full review »

Just attempted to listen to “Ice Cream Nation”, spent the whole time having to shuffle the volume up and down by many notches. Far too much loud music that added nothing to the content. Very disappointing.
HappyJenni via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/17/19
I love this program !
Pounagate via Apple Podcasts · France · 08/15/19
Interesting variety of subjects. I enjoyed the topics on chefs, blue fin tuna. The interview questions are great open-ended ones. I had to skip some of the 2018 episodes because host, a British woman, tends to have this intolerable dragging vocal fry.
FacebookAppsAreLame via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/05/19
Listening in the car on my way to and from work the BBC Radio 4 podcast gets me thinking, smiling and feeling happy. The food industry is forever evolving, there will never be ‘nothing to discover’ and boredom doesn’t get a look-in. Inspiring people, exciting ideas, fascinating science and above...Read full review »

One of the best podcasts about food. Well-researched and insightful. A must if you’re interested in food culture.
bread&butter20 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/22/19
Always a top notch episode when Sheila Dillon is at the helm.
accordionplayer3 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/08/19
Very informative, topics are covered fully in the time given for each episode.
Arumashi04 via Apple Podcasts · United Arab Emirates · 02/02/19
The content varies and is always interesting: from chefs to ( unknown to me) countries and cultures, to the problems of feeding Syrian refugees with a strong food culture. I love them all! Great commentary and insightful interviews
A lady who listens and lunches via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 01/29/19
An absolute treat of a podcast. Every episode is compelling and presented with passion but also widely varied. It has made me laugh, cry, educated me and really change the way I think about food. And the icing on the proverbial cake? The audio production is top class and the episodes are just 30...Read full review »

There are two Sheila’s that I am in love with. Sheila Dylan, the host of this great show and Sheila from Wild Wild Country. If only I had a time machine. For now, listen to The episode about Patience Grey. And another favourite is called “a fat lot of good”. Both fascinating.
Gaylord Perry via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/15/18
Don't have to be British to enjoy this podcast! But where's Sheila Dillon lately? She's my favorite, and it feels like it's been ages since she's done one of these. Hope that's just a temporary thing......Read full review »

Crikey, it's not easy to turn a podcast about food into a dire political diatribe but they manage it sometimes. Lighten up, we've enough misery in our lives without having to listen to sanctimonious Shiela...or the 'earnest' male presenter. That's when we can hear them...Read full review »

I’ve been a listener since I was kid: back in the days of Derek Cooper presenting it. Over the years I have learnt so much about food and cooking from The Food Programme. But that’s not to say it’s perfect. Some episodes are brilliant but, they do depend upon the quality of journalism delivered...Read full review »

Presenter Dan Saladino is bland, and can make the most interesting topic dull. He sounds like he’s telling bedtime stories.

Loving the subject matter and everything related this is informative interesting and quite entertaining, so many discussions about such a variety of subjects, look forward to each new episode
