Ep 32: Senior Citizen's Killing Spree

Sam and James are joined by their onetime supper club helpers Hannah and Hugh, and things get deranged. Topics covered are multiflavoured TicTacs, trouser safety, egg theivery, and whether millenials have short attention spans. James brings a power tool and a dead lamb to the table. Sam likes old men and noodles. Hannah is not a circus motorcyclist. Hugh divulges a business idea. James's wife Rosie gets involved. Why is JK Rowling selling weed? Is Samuel Crump the same as Donald Trump? And is Postman Pat a serial killer?

This week the kitchen is on fire with discussions on topics as wide-ranging as stealing from Starbucks, raw chicken, and Taggart. Sam divulges some genuinely interesting facts about avocados. James makes some edgy political gags about Prime Minister Ed Miliband. There's a murder mystery involving some of London's favourite food folk. Radio 4's Susan Rae enters as detective. Is sugar as good as heroin? What's the connection between testicles and lawyers? And would you like a fishing rod for a penis?

Sam and James are joined by music journalist and son of fish and chip shop owners, Pete Paphides. Spam, saveloys and Sam's daughter all make their presence known. Pete dazzles the gang with his restaurant concepts. Is sushi depraved? Why was James embarrassed by swearing? What kind of psychopath would yell 'moist vagina' at their own mother? Such topics and many more are debated, discussed and generally batted about with little, if any, thought for the consequences.

Ep 29: Ready Meals for Psychopaths

Sam and James are joined by actor Justin Edwards, who is fresh off of starring alongside Miles Jupp in In and Out of the Kitchen. He shares parenting advice and thoughts on local newspaper restaurant critics. Sam tells everyone about his dad's terrifying indoor fireworks displays. James makes quite a lot of cocktails. What's it like to go flyfishing with Eric Clapton? What happened to the disembowelling snowman? And does Patrick Bateman really need ready meals?

Ep 28: The Ballad of John and Gregg

Guardian television critic Stuart Heritage is in the kitchen this week to dispense some wisdom about celebrity interviews, Masterchef invention tests, and Spam. He calls Adam Richman a douche. Sam calls Christoph Waltz a motherfucker. James stares at Sam's hair a fair bit. Why is Sam hiding in Nigella's kitchen? Are Ben and Jerry Nazis? And just how much do Masterchef's John and Gregg loathe one another?

Ep 27: Big Hot Food Guns

Cookbook author and food blogger Lizzie Mabbott joins the boys to talk about her new book Chinatown Kitchen, going vegan as a dare, and not being related to ex-Tottenham footballer Gary Mabbutt. They sample a four-month old negroni and ponder pasta, noodles, and God. Should agas be banned? What do cows think about? And what sort of a restaurant critic would Robocop make?

Ep 26: The Axe Man

Our heroes are joined by Danny 'Food Urchin' Kingston who lowers the tone quite magnificently. James and Danny reminisce about cooking pasta for Christopher Biggins, Sam laments his similarity in appearance to Noel Edmonds, and Danny goes on an Easter egg hunt with Christian swingers. What would happen if Santana was Siri? What happened to Toadfish Rebecchi? And is this the most childish episode ever?

Ep 25: A Poor Lamb's Memory

Our heroes are joined by stand-up and comedian Chris Neill, who gives them the lowdown on cooking offal live on stage at the Edinburgh Fringe, Rufus Sewell's smelly overcoat, and being a feathered gay man in a nest. Sam bunks off school to sit in a boat. James bunks off school to be in a play. Chris takes on James at Just A Minute Steak and talks about working with the great - or perhaps not so great - Clement Freud. Why did Freud get his knickers in a twist over a bottle of port? Does everything go hard eventually? And just what memories do lambs have?

Ep 24: Ding Dong

In the kitchen this week: James and Sam discuss a melancholy waiter at St. John and classic vs. modern cooking. Somehow they also talk about black holes, Steve McQueen, and sex addiction. Has Sam slept with Gwyneth Paltrow? Can you 'bank' alcoholism? And at age 29 does James already have gout?

Acting hunk Edward Holcroft joins the boys fresh on the back of starring in Wolf Hall and Kingsman to discuss only acting with people called Mark, watching the World Cup with Rylance and Damian Lewis, and whether or not Hilary Mantel is a formidable woman. Sam realises what 'brunch' means for the first time, Ed gets starstruck and makes crab linguine. What's Colin Firth like? Why did Harrison Ford crash that plane? And just what are the dizzy heights of Alan Rickman?
