Listen to Eat It - 19 June 201651:2619 June 2016

We started out today's show mentioning some upcoming Dine with Heart dinners for Sacred Heart Mission, Cam is hosting an event at Luxembourg tomorrow night and then Craft & Co in a couple of week's time.

We were joined in the studio by the chef behind Red Spice Road, John McLeay. We spoke about all the different foods you can use to suck up flavour... think daikon radish, carrot, okra, and even the humble potato. We also spoke about some of the awesome places to shop around Richmond for Asian ingredients.

It's no mean feat to survive for 10 years in the restaurant game, and Brunswick's Rumi has just celebrated that milestone. We spoke to chef / owner Joseph Abboud about his journey in the industry, and what made him make the bold decision to open a Lebanese restaurant in the middle of inner-northern Melbourne.

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.
