FT Weekend: The good life, with chefs Daniel Humm and Alice Waters


This weekend we’re returning to the first-ever episode of the FT Weekend podcast, from September. Lilah talks to Eleven Madison Park’s Daniel Humm and Chez Panisse’s legendary Alice Waters to discover how the world’s top chefs are finding purpose beyond their restaurants. Humm created a buzz in May when he announced that his world-famous restaurant would be going entirely plant-based. Has that risk paid off? And what does it mean to do good as a chef?

Plus: the FT’s design critic Edwin Heathcote gives us a tour of the world’s most vengeful architecture, and reporter Madison Darbyshire shares tips for how to furnish your home with old things.
