Listen to Eat It - 27 November 201652:3227 November 2016

We started today's show talking about some of the awesome stuff happening for 3RRR's 40th birthday - get involved!

We chatted to food writer an author Richard Cornish about the recent appalling treatment of animals at a Riverside Meats abattoir and how (once again) this underlines the dilemma for meat producers and meat eaters in general. Is there such a thing as "ethical meat"? Is it possible to develop a supply chain where the animal, the producer, and the customer all get something out of the process?

Next up we spoke to John at the Vic Market.

We finished the show with food writer, eater, and cook Dani Valent about entertaining at home. With all the full restaurants, cafes, and bike delivery services is anyone still actually cooking their own food? Yes! And with some planning it's not a huge amount of work. We also spoke about Stephanie Alexander's new book The Cook's Table.

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.
