Today we spoke to Sophie Lamond about a meal she prepared called Gastronomica Apocalyptica, which was part of a broader exhibition from the Carlton Connect Initiative on the future of food. What will the 22nd century food marketplace look like? We've all moved on from meat and three veg, and the exhibition explores what will be on our plates in a (potential) world without bees and cool oceans.
Next up we spoke to John at the Queen Vic Market, green beans are $20 per kilo right now... avoid!
Vanessa and Mat from Melbourne City Rooftop Honey joined us in the studio and spoke about their new honey processing and educaton centre. They'll be running sessions on all aspects of beekeeping as well as having a shiny new home for their honey. We also spoke about a recent discovery of verroa in two beehives in Townsville, which unfortunately means we'll probably see it distributed around Australian hives in the coming months.
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.
