Cooking dinner for Ross Poldark eh? As the Food Stylist on the second TV series of Poldark broadcast in autumn 2016, this is exactly what Genevieve did. Listen to BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme on the subject which Genevieve presented on Sunday 11 September and read the Spectator piece here.

Here is the link to Radio 4’s The Food Programme, celebrating Bristol’s “food hub” status, co-presented by Genevieve:
