Today's show was brought to you by the letter "P" - Peru, Pisco, and uhhhhh People making beer.We started by leaving a voicemail for Two Birds Brewing's Jayne Lewis about their recent award for best beer at the Wetherspoons Real Ale Festival.Peru's Astrid y Gastn restaurant currently sits at #14 on San Pellegrino's Top 50 list, so it was an absolute pleasure to welcome chef Diego Muoz to Melbourne and Triple R. We spoke about the various influences that multiculturalism has had on Peruvian cuisine, his time cooking at different restaurants around the world, and even his genuine love for Vegemite.Continuing with the Peruvian theme, The Pisco People's Josie Healy popped in to explain a little about Peru's native spirit, the various grape varieties that are used, and how to drink it if you find yourself with a bottle.
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.
