Listen to Eat It - 29 March 201553:1329 March 2015

On today's show we had a quick market report from John at the Vic Market.

One of Melbourne's super-chefs Donovan Cooke joined us with Hillary McNevin to talk about his new book The Atlantic at Home. We spoke about his history as a chef, his initial memories of seafood as a child, working with Marco Pierre White, and his approach to cooking with various types of fish.

We finished the show enjoying a Knickerbocker cocktail courtesy of Sebastian Reaburn. Melbourne hosts the final of the Cricket World Cup today, and we'll bet you didn't know that the first ever tour of the English cricket team to Australia was bankrolled by Melbourne's famous Cafe de Paris. Commercialisation of sport has been around for a long time!

About this program

Food for thought: recipes, hints and tips, interviews and a market report.

It's one of those constants in this fair city; every Sunday at midday tune into the best radio station on earth for Eat It, Triple R's resident food show. No-one really knows quite how many years the show has been on-air, but it's been going long enough for us all to lose track. Each week Cam Smith and Matt Steadman take an hour to discuss every aspect of food and drink, including regular market reports, interviews with chefs and restaurateurs, chats with industry and lobby groups, emptying bottles with wine-makers and writers, answering listeners' questions, the occasional on-air cooking segment, and anything else we deem fit. Sometimes we'll even squeeze in a song or two.
