Listen to Eat It - 19 February 201752:0619 February 2017

On a drizzly Melbourne Sunday we spoke to Melbourne Chef Nikki Reimer about the recent closure of her Richmond eatery Union Dining, and the rather unusual process of closing a restaurant and packing it all up after many years of service.

Next up Samantha Gowing joined us from her abode in Northern NSW, and also happened to bring Australian music icon Normie Rowe along for the ride. We spoke about foods that make you feel good, and what Sam is looking forward to this Autumn.

To finish the day's show we spoke to winemaker Duncan Buchanan live from the vineyards of Victoria. Vintage 2017 is shaping up OK for us Victorians (we've escaped the heat that so many other regions have experienced), despite the fact that yields are slightly lower than what we'd consider "normal".

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.
