Happy St Valentine's Day everyone! We started today's show chatting with coffee guru Justin Metcalf about what is happening globally in the coffee biz. We spoke about climate change, Melbourne being at the forefront of the coffee industry, and whether or not the famous "third wave" of coffee is over. And despite all of our espresso wankery, did you know that 66% of all coffee sold is still instant?
Next we had another chat to John at the market.
Lastly, given it's St Valentine's Day, we thought we talk about food and SEX with Madame Brussel's amazing Miss Pearls. We discussed what to eat on a romantic night, the nightmare that is restaurants on Feb 14, and the film Tampopo. Also Madame Brussel's tenth anniversary is coming up, look out for the celebration events!
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.
