Mission Debrief (002 Food)

Is James Bond a good cook?

This week Edward Biddulph returns to the podcast for a special Mission Debrief episode all about the food of Bond. We discuss Bond’s heroic consumption of eggs, the novelty of an avocado in the 1950s, strange savoury desserts, Fleming (and consequently Bond’s) passion for rich French-style cuisine, touring Europe like 007, Bond novels as a travelogue, his kitchen and single-use gadgets, and the general dearth of food in the films when compared to the novels.

The recording took place on December 8th in the UK and New Zealand.

Paul Atkinson is a co-founder of and the magazine MI6 Confidential

Edward Biddulph is author of Licence To Cook (buy now from Amazon) and the blog
