Jane Peyton joins The FoodTalk Show as it returns to the airwaves this month!

Following a break during the Pandemic, when food tasting and cosy conversations were off the agenda, The FoodTalk Show is back online! The popular food-focused show, which was named UK Food Broadcaster of the Year in 2020, is returning with a new presenter line up.   

The FoodTalk Show will once again be hosted by its founder, award-winning entrepreneur and broadcaster Sue Nelson, who will this time be joined by a new co-host, the UK’s first accredited Pommelier (cider sommelier) and founder of the School of Booze, Jane Peyton. 

Sue Nelson has a wealth of experience in broadcasting, particularly on food and farming. She regularly appears on national radio and television news channels including Radio 4’s Today programme, BBC Breakfast, Channel 4 News, News at Ten, CNN, Sky News, Radio 5 Live, The Culture Show, Farming Today, and The Food Programme, to name a few. She is a member of the Guild of Food Writers, Chair of Produced in Kent and author of ten books including FoodTech UK and the Fine Food Lover’s Guide together with Simon Rimmer, the co-host of Sunday Brunch.   

Jane Peyton – the instigator and driving force of the UK’s annual national beer day – is an award-winning drinks educator, writer, broadcaster, pub expert, and public speaker. She is the author of nine non-fiction books including The Philosophy of Gin, and Beer o’Clock. A regular guest on radio and television, talking about a wide range of alcohol subjects, Jane is also an ambassador for Love British Food, the national campaign to promote British food.  

The FoodTalk Show will feature interviews with founders of household names and local food brands, discussing topics relating to the food and drink industry and sharing exciting new delicious discoveries. Previous guests have included the founders of Green & Black’s, Gousto, Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and Cawston Press and regulars from Celebrity MasterChef, Saturday Kitchen and Great British Menu. Each guest sharing their passion for great food and discussing a wide range of relevant industry topics.   

Sue Nelson comments, “I cannot wait to get back in the studio again. Given the bashing the industry has received during the pandemic, there’s never been a better time to shine a light on the producers, farmers and hardworking people in the hospitality sector. 

 “I’m thrilled that Jane is joining me on the show, she is a true expert in her field. We make a great team and share a huge passion for beautifully produced food and drink. We’re getting ready to taste and share the excitement of this dynamic industry as we all become reacquainted with our love of food and drink once more.”  

The shows will be broadcasted weekly from Monday October 25th at 5pm on iTunes, Spotify or on the podcast app on your phone by searching ‘The Food Talk Radio Show Podcasts’. They are also available on, where you can also download any of the hundreds of previous podcasts.  

The production team is anticipating an increased listenership as people fall in love with food tasting and socialising once more. Previously, the weekly show was downloaded via iTunes, Spotify, Player FM and PodBean by over 65,000 listeners a week. It was also syndicated through radio stations nationwide.
