In This Episode

Poppy O’Toole runs Poppy Cooks on TikTok, where she shares cooking videos with her two million followers. She trained as a chef at a Michelin-starred restaurant, and lost her job in March 2020 because of Covid. She started Poppy Cooks to pass the time during lockdown. Her potato series, which got millions of views, made her a viral sensation. This led to her publishing her first cookbook, Poppy Cooks: The Food You Need. On the podcast, Poppy talks to Lara and Liv about how her grandmother taught her to cook, what makes the perfect TikTok video, and the pressures of cooking in a bank.
