A Bit of a Mouthful – the podcast from internet sensations Michael (Ops Director @mobkitchen), Sophie (Head of Food @mobkitchen) and Willy (@whatwillycook), brings you delicious food hacks you’ll actually use, all served up on a bed of fresh, nutritious comedy…. and cabbage. Series 1 Produced by FoodFM


A Bit of a Mouthful

Sweetie Day, Non-Stick Pans and some Crunchy Trumpet Mushrooms

This week’s episode’s a special one as Michael debuts his brand new feature #TTB as he brings in a favourite childhood treat, Will breaks all rules by serving his drink at the beginning of the episode and we learn that if you want to make Sophie very happy, all you have to do is cook her a simple meal (we all need a break sometimes). Oh, and Michael can actually cook?!

Queen, Queen bees and the Girl Guide's Dry January Sash

Sophie and Will discuss their not-so-successful fridge raid dinners and prove that some ingredients just should not go together, Michael gets political in Hot Takes and not everyone's particularly excited as producer Jake provides this week's Show, Tell and Smell.

Funny, political and informative. YOU DON'T GET THAT ANYWHERE ELSE

A Bit of a Christmas Special

It's that time of year - we've all eaten a bit too much and your dad has made one dad joke too many, so it's time to give yourself a well-deserved break. In this festive episode, Sophie, Will and Michael talk all about their family Christmas food traditions in Hot Takes, they pass judgement on some of your Christmas dinner leftover dishes in Sophie Says and if you like a good (questionable) Christmas singalong, then you're in the right place. So sit back, relax, go get yourself a glass of your favourite Christmas drink and enjoy listening to this one - Merry Christmas! 

Cold Sausages, Pastry Problems and a Socially-Distanced Sophie

This week, as Sophie joins us from the comfort of her own kitchen, we witness her job hanging in the balance, Will comes up with his own catchphrase, Michael's got 99 problems and pastry is number 1 and we maybe wouldn't recommend listening to this one whilst you're eating...

Crushes, Cashews and the 'Sneezy, Weezy Little Goblin'

In this week's episode, Sophie sheds light on her vegan bechamel-y ways, Will can't recall what he had for dinner last night, we find out what's really on Michael's mind (sorry Denmark) and is this the best Show, Tell and Smell/Crunch Time ever?

Supermarket slander, pizza controversy & a steaming pile of S**** (Sushi)

Will gets into copious amount of libel with every supermarket chain, Sophie says probably the worst hot take of all time, whilst Michael... err.... Michael has a quiet episode.

We're back baby! Season 2 starts right here. Right now.

A Bit Of A Mouthful returns from the middle of a building site. Michael reminisces about s*** spaghetti, Will lets us all in on his kleptomaniac stage, Sophie poses some impossibly hard questions to the team and we have a lovely special guest called Seema Pankhania. 

Series 1 Finale: Freedom Day

The last episode of series 1 coincides with Covid “Freedom Day” so the guys waste no time in touring their favourite places to eat. Sophie serves up delicious mussels pinchos. Michael has found a new Indian restaurant that could rival Dishoom. And for the season finale Will pairs a fine wine with pork scratchings. Of course he does.

Skewers, Snacks & bahn mi Sandwich

Sophie remembers her freaky aubergine roast dinner, Will talks snack and beer pairing, Michael does Flesh ‘n Buns and why do onions make you cry?

Holidays, Hollywood and a Hippy

The gang have to quarantine following Michael’s Portuguese holiday – so it’s the ABOAM outdoor Summertime Special. Sophie cooks up a Balinese BBQ, Will asks the hippy with a leaf blower in the neighbour’s garden to STFU, it’s the world’s first Snog Marry Avoid food version and we discover that one of the team has a secret Hollywood past.

Goat, Pringles, sausage ‘n Speedos

Sophie cooks up curried goat and slaw for the guys, Michael worries about his speedos, Will cracks open the Doner Kebab Pringles, and no-one can agree on BBQ sausages…

Dinner disasters, Buckfast ‘n crisps and a celebrity wet-ass cookie

Will combos Buckfast with spicy West Indies crisps, Sophie has a killer collection of family dinner disasters, Michael’s makes a wrap-of-the day confession and our first celebrity guest bakes an insanely delicious wet ass cookie…

Haggis, hearts and heartbreak…

Will’s chicken fajitas with a difference…Michael finds breaking up is hard to do…, Sophie cooks up a delicious haggis and cheese sourdough toastie…and what is your Dad’s speciality dish?

Mexican Elotes. Polish crisps. Janky toastie makers.

The boys reckon Sophie’s Mexican street food is the best show and tell and smell ever… Will pairs crisps from the Polish deli with dark rum, Michael calls out bad dishwasher etiquette and who the hell cleans a toastie maker with a dustpan and brush?

Beans, steaks and chocolate caterpillars!

Michael invents his own BBQ bean sauce, Sophie advises a listener whose housemate cooks 20 steaks at a time and Will struggles with extra spicy Indian street food. All that and a guest appearance from Colin the Caterpillar.

Danish, Doritos, and a Dead Mouse

The team gives MSG a massive thumbs up, Sophie creates unbelievably delicious Danish sandwiches for the guys, and Michael remembers a dead mouse horror story. Meanwhile, Will goes on a Jagermeister fishing trip… but catches a chicken.

Sounds, Spoons, Crunching or Melting?

In this episode we discuss the best sound in cooking, Will gets excited about Wetherspoons breakfasts, Sophie’s not sure if she is a “cruncher” or a “melter” and Michael’s fingers go bright orange after a Giant Wotsits session...

Dips, Toast, Portions & Wine

Michael calls out rip-off portion sizes, Sophie has a nightmare airplane meal, and everyone agrees that Will has created the best ever toast topping…

The Pilot

Sophie introduces Will and Michael to Pinchos snacking, the jury's out on the etiquette of slow-cookers in shared houses… and the boys get propositioned by some over-imaginative fans.
