We were joined today by Spade and Barrow's Katy Barfield, who spoke about her career in "food rescue" - getting food that would normally be wasted and ensuring it will be used. The most recent phase of this is the Yume app, allowing the public to purchase cheap produce. Download it onto your gizmo and have a look!
Joost Bakker braved the crosstown traffic to make it from Monbulk to East Brunswick. We talked about Melbourne's seasons, grinding oats and flour, raw milk, and nutrition vs politics.
We finished today's show with winemaker Duncan Buchanan, who like most winemakers is BUSY right now bringing grapes off vines. This vintage, everything is ready at the same time so chaos has ensued!
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.
