Episode 37 : Margie | Desert Island Dishes

Launching a top podcast, the importance of sharing accessible recipes and throwing yourself in at the deep end with Margie, creator of Desert Island Dishes, chef and food writer. 

For this episode we spoke to Margie about her hit podcast Desert Island Dishes – where the idea came from, how she got her first guest and the journey it’s taken her on so far. It was fascinating to hear about the business she has created from this and how it has led to her sharing further foodie content across her website and social media. Further to this, we discuss the importance of providing accessible recipes and kitchen tips and we hear about the origins of her popular ‘supermarket snoop’ series on Instagram. We also talked about the start of Margie’s career, working in restaurant kitchens, and how this led to work as a private caterer - which is still one of the many sides to her business today. From her first job after cookery school to starting a podcast from scratch, Margie has taken many brave steps to get to where she is.
