At one point or another, most of us in lockdown will have tried out a new recipe – and failed. Perhaps you couldn’t bring your sourdough starter to life, or maybe your hand-cut noodles were too thick, too chewy or too much of a sloppy mess. At the time, you probably weren’t thinking about what was happening on a molecular level. But for cancer research scientist-turned-cook Pippa Middlehurst, “it’s the way my brain understands the world”.

Two years ago, Middlehurst swapped her lab coat for an apron to pursue her love of Asian cooking – and even appeared on and won the first series of Britain’s Best Home Cook on BBC One – but the decision was less a choice of one over the other, and more a merging of two passions. “It sounds silly that there would be so much science involved with noodles,” she tells

About six years ago, I got a membership to a high-end gym chain and started buying class packs at an upscale boutique fitness studio. It really made me feel like I’d “made it” in my career.

But as much as I’d been looking forward to working out in these luxe spaces, I noticed myself only going once every week or two. I realized that it was because I barely ever saw any people of color in them. I was almost always the only one, with the exception of the occasional Black and brown person who was a member of the facility crew, cleaning the floors.
