In this series we hear from some well-known people about their favourite dishes, favourite food memories and the people they'd most like to share a meal with. First up is DJ, radio presenter, and Dirty Laundry podcaster, Tara Stewart.

What food most reminds you of childhood?
My Amma used to make this incredible chicken curry. I grew up in a restaurant and a bar quite literally and my mum and dad owned it. My mum was the cook and used to make huge kitchen sized pots of curry every single day. I have really fond memories of getting home from school and making a beeline for the stove to grab some curry gravy. My Amma wasn't over the moon because I'd almost eat the whole thing if she didn't stop me!

What's your ultimate comfort food?
Ramen or Pho! I absolutely adore Asian food in general, but if I'm cold or hungover or just need to feel nice and comfy I'll always go for one of those.

What food do you think is underrated?

Curry all day, every day.
