Travel World CUISINE In St Albans, Harpenden Writers & Local News

Host Danny Smith is joined by our Food & Drink correspondent Becky Alexander. Becky discusses the recent fires at popular local eateries, and the impact on our community. She also shares her tips on how to enjoy “holiday cuisine” on our own doorstep, tells us about vegan fayres and how you can enjoy fine dining at a bargain price at lunchtimes.

Also joining the show this week are Susanne and Jo from the Harpenden Writers.  This group started nearly 22 years ago and meet on the first Friday of the month at the Friends Meeting House on Southdown Road. Susanne looks after their programme and shares some of the highlights from their forthcoming season. More information can be found at

Podcast producer Sam Rolfe and local stalwart Ian Rogers also appear with another “Hot Topic” – a light-hearted look at a weird & wonderful news story from somewhere around the world.

Starting off each edition of the podcast is a local news round-up with The Herts Advertiser’s ace reporter, beat-boxing champion, stunt skateboarder and semi-professional thimble collector, the Formidable, Fabulous Franki Berry. She and Danny take a look at some of the big stories from our area.
