On today's show we spoke to Victorian food guru Alla Wolf-Tasker from Dayleford's Lakehouse. We chatted about the restaurant's "rhythm of the day", the importance of small-scale farming, and the upcoming 14th annual Regional Producers' Day.
The Victorian government has recently introduced a controversial ban on commercial fishing in Port Phillip Bay, and we spoke to food writer Richard Cornish about the new laws. We covered some alternate sources of seafood, whether the old regime was sustainable, and the "terroir" of individual fishing areas.
We finished the show with Melbourne dessert guru Pierre Roelofs who is about to launch another in his series of dessert pop-ups, this time at Milkwood Cafe. Just over the road from us!
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.
