The Communal Table Podcast: Romy Gill

Read more

Romy Gill was getting ready to sell her jewelry to finance her first restaurant. As an immigrant to England from India—and a woman—she was finding it very difficult to get a bank loan, but they didn't know Romy Gill. After a BBC feature, she not only got the loan to open Romy's Kitchen, but went on to become a frequent and beloved presence on the radio and TV throughout the UK, write a stunning new cookbook, Zaika, on vegan Indian cooking, and become a mentor to people in the industry who have long been marginalized. While she was in New York City in mid-February, before COVID-19 lockdowns, Gill sat down with her friend Food & Wine Senior Editor Kat Kinsman to talk about her journey, how cooking has helped her cope after her mother's death, and her dreams to the show she dreams of doing with her dad. (edited)

The UK government is a world-leading investor in research on the prevention of violence against women and girls. Between 2013 and 2019 it has invested £25 million in pilots across 12 countries in Africa and Asia to research ways to prevent it in different contexts – the largest ever study of its kind. ‘What works to prevent violence against women and girls?’ has focused on producing rigorous evidence on a global scale for the first time that can be shared with other governments, donors and civil society organisations to encourage more effective global action. Many of those experts and organisations involved in the research in Africa are meeting in London today to reflect on their findings. Jane talks to a few of those involved about their research, their recommendations and what they hope will happen next.

Vogue Williams, TV presenter and influencer talks about being a parent in the public eye and parent shaming. Vogue is married to Spencer Matthews who she met on a reality TV series and they have a one-year old son, Theodore. Where does Vogue draw the line between a willingness to share her family life and standing up for herself if she is judged for her parenting decisions? How much is parent shaming here to stay?

Romy Gill’s new book 'Zaika’ celebrates vegan recipes from India. She joins Jane in the studio to cook the perfect Spicy Chickpeas.

Who Run The World? Romy Gill

Read more

This is the fourth episode of our Who Run The World? season celebrating women in food.

Today’s guest is Romy Gill, what a treat! Romy is a British-Indian chef and cookery teacher and was the owner and head chef at Romy’s Kitchen in Gloucestershire for 6 years. One of the few female Indian chefs in the industry, Romy was appointed an MBE in the Queen’s 90th birthday honours list in 2016 for her services to the food industry. Romy’s debut cookbook Zaika is full of delicious vegan recipes celebrating the zaika or ‘flavours’ of Indian cooking that bring a renewed spicy excitement to plant-based food.

We talked to Romy about the barriers she came up against as a woman – and more specifically an Indian woman – opening her own restaurant, from securing funding to getting planning permission and dealing with builders. We also talked about the women who have inspired her and helped her along the way, from her mother to Sheila Dillon, Claudia Roden, Delia Smith and Nigella Lawson.

Romy is such an inspiration to women in the food industry and such a pleasure to chat to. We were so excited to hear that she'll be joining the lineup of the new Ready Steady Cook on BBC One and that she has a new opening coming soon.

Hope you enjoy!

This interview is part of our series Who Run The World? Women in Food. Our final episode will air on 8th March International Women’s Day.
