Meet the Author: A Graffeg podcast

We're so excited to be sharing that this year we have been venturing into the world of podcasting. We wanted to give our readers a chance to have an insight into the publishing processes here at Graffeg and get some exclusive takes from some of our wonderful authors. 

This series will consist of 1 hour long interviews highlighting some of brilliant new titles covering all areas of our publishing catalogue. These interviews cover all the areas of our publishing from nature to food and children’s to photography, so there is something for everyone. Come and meet the authors behind some of your favourite titles and learn more about their upcoming books.


Find out more about the first episode with Maggie Ogunbanwo below.

Meet Maggie Ogunbanwo in the first Graffeg Meet the Author Podcast. Find out more about her first recipe book - The Melting Pot - along with her latest venture into plant-based cooking in African Twist. Maggie tells us about her favourite recipes from the books and the inspirations behind them, as well as providing us with some helpful cooking tips and mouthwatering recipe inspirations.


Producer and interviewer Keiran Manetta-Jones joins Maggie as they discuss her business, her inspirations and her cooking.
