Simon Rimmer joins Scala Radio to host new series

Sunday Brunch host Simon Rimmer is joining Scala Radio to host series where he looks at the unique pairing of food and music.

Across the Table with Simon Rimmer launches on Sunday 4 September with the further three episodes on air each Sunday from 6pm – 8pm.

The show will include the best pieces from the classical world and discovering lesser-known tracks that have a connection with food and drink.

Simon will be joined by his favourite foodie friends such as Tom Kerridge, Clodagh McKenna, Paul Ainsworth and more. The series will also include conversations around the dinner table, ranging from kitchen hacks and food trends to budgeting and sustainability.

On joining Scala Radio, Simon said: “I am really excited to be joining Scala Radio for my very own show.

“Food and music are probably the two most important things in my life (apart from sleep, coffee and football) so I’m looking forward to learning more about the link between classical music and the world of food.

“It has also been fun to discover composers who had interesting eating habits – Rossini, Satie, Mozart… I’ve heard they had some weird foodie quirks that I’m going to share with the listeners.”
