While Michelin star chef Angela will be making and serving incredible dishes, sharing tips, and recommending delicious Waitrose recipes, Radio 1 alumni, Grimmy (who put his novice cooking skills to the test on The Great British Bake Off last year) will be sticking to serving the drinks and interviewing their special guests.

They will be joined at the table by some of their favourite people including British actor David Harewood, chef Yotam Ottolenghi, fellow cook Nadiya Hussain, American actor Stanley Tucci, comedian Russell Howard, musicians Frankie Bridge and Martin Kemp, author and podcaster Dolly Alderton and presenter Vernon Kay.

Nick Grimshaw, said: “So excited to be back for another series of Dish! Getting to work alongside the legendary and hilarious Angela Hartnett has been a total joy. I can’t wait to get going on another series, this one promises Stanley Tucci so I am beside myself. See you in the kitchen.”

Angela who has worked with everyone (both on and off screen) from Gordon Ramsay to Mary Berry adds, “Working with Nick on this has been hysterical, I spend the whole time laughing. What’s not to love about cooking, eating, drinking, and chatting with our dream dinner-party guests? I hope everyone enjoys it; as much as we did recording it...”

Waitrose Customer Director Martin George concluded: “We're thrilled Dish is back for a second season. The response to the first season has been incredible, and the line-up of guests for autumn and winter is outstanding - listeners are in for a lot more fun and foodie conversation hosted by Nick and Angela.”

Working with Gordon Ramsay for many years, she launched Amaryllis inScotland, Verre in Dubai, and Menu and The Grill Room at the Connaught. In 2007 Angela was awarded an MBE for services to the hospitality industry, and the following year she opened her own restaurant, Murano, in Mayfair.

Angela is a regular on UK television, often appearing on Great British Menu, MasterChef, and Saturday Kitchen, as well as being one of the judges for BBC’s Best Home Cook. She was awarded an OBE in 2022 for her services to the hospitality industry and to the NHS throughout the pandemic.
