We started today's show trying to identify a mystery ingredient, that turned out to be fresh wasabi - yum! Why not try it as we did, grated into soy and served with raw tuna. Awesome.
From Japan to Japanese Hawaiian fusion, we spoke to Charlie Rothery from Windsor's Tokyo Tina about the fact that Poke fish is the new cool kid on the block. We sampled his tropical-style don dish featuring Poke, and spoke about the evolution of Japanese cuisine in different countries.
Next up we had a market report from John at the Vic Market.
We finished up with a food quiz, hurrah for all you listeners battling it out to win a book pack from Books for Cooks.
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.
