My guest today is Poppy O’Toole , also known as Poppy Cook’s.
If you were on your phone through lockdown, there is no doubt at all in my mind that you will have seen today’s guest across your screens teaching us how to make potatoes in all kinds of delicious ways.
Poppy O’Toole, also known as Poppy Cooks, is a Michelin-trained professional chef, who turned to TikTok upon losing her job in 2020 to fill some time. 3 years later, Poppy has amassed over 4 million followers on TikTok and her second cookbook is about to be released. She is a judge on Junior Masterchef and as the self-proclaimed Potato Queen, teaches her audience to make all sorts of potato delights as well as a whole host of other lovely recipes that aim to make cooking and food accessible to all audiences.
“I REALIZED I’M NOT VERY FANCY. I LIKE VERY STANDARD FOOD. I LIKE TO PRETEND I LIKE OYSTERS. I DON’T… I LIKE EATING POTATOES AND CREAM. THAT’S ABOUT IT.”
