Foodie Call

The interview podcast series that asks: WHAT'S YOUR SECRET SAUCE?

About the show

‚ÄčTogether as a couple, Kylie and Omar have found that the only thing they love more than each other is cooking (and eating!), which has led them on a mission to explore with friends what it is that makes food so great. Everyone's gotta eat, but they each have their own tastes - so tune into "Foodie Call" - the interview podcast that asks guests: "what's your secret sauce?"
