Listen to Eat It - 11 December 201651:2111 December 2016

On today's show we noted the sudden passing of journalist and food critic AA Gill, who wrote for the Sunday Times in the UK and also for Australian Gourmet Traveller. The man could write! Vale.

Next up we had a quick market report from John at the Queen Vic Market.

We were thrilled to be joined by one of Melbourne's iconic chefs, Jacques Reymond. We spoke about growing up in Burgundy, Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere, and how his Christmases have evolved since arriving in Australia.

We finished the show with The Humble Tumbler's Clare Burder who brought in a bottle of her amazing The Assembly sparkling wine. Made with fruit from the highest vineyard in Victoria, we spoke about making sparking "the hard way". We also chatted about her Christmas rituals and what to avoid to make it through the day (exhibit A: sparkling shiraz)

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.
