Listen to Eat It - 17 July 201650:1017 July 2016

On today's show we caught up with Cam who is off the leash this weekend, and he's ended up in Bendigo for the 2016 Bendigo Festival of Lamb.

Next up we had an extended chat to Leo Donati, who has been the owner of Donati's Fine Meats in Carlton since the early 1970s. We spoke about his arrival in Australia way back in 1956, and the changes he's seen in Melbourne's food (and general) culture in the decades since then.

To finish off, we may have cheated slightly and grabbed a reheated meal out of the freezer - we caught up with TV host and cookbook author Adam Liaw earlier this year, and he spoke about how his approach to food has changed and simplified over the years.

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.
