Happy Easter Peeps! On today's show we spoke to the Gourmet Farmer Matthew Evans, owner of Fat Pig Farm in Tasmania. He's just released a new book called Not Just Jam that covers all kind of preserves, and we discussed the origins of preserved goods and why they are still relevant despite modern food technologies.
We then were joined by Melbourne-based French Chef Florent Gerardin, who chatted about his time working in kitchens alongside Joel Robuchon, Alain Ducasse, Shannon Bennett, and Mark Best amongst others. He is opening a new restaurant in Flinders Lane called Oter, and we spoke about how the new space is coming together and what they'll be serving. It's opening around April 11, so swing past and have a look.
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.
