Listen to Eat It - 12 March 201747:5412 March 2017

On today's show we spoke to fish guru John Susman about how we can try and make some more sustainable choices next time we're at the fish counter. Rather than a good ol' fillet of salmon, why not try some Leatherjacket, or Flathead, or Red Spot Whiting? We also mentioned his excellent new tome The Australian Fish and Seafood Cookbook which we think is right up there with The Cook's Companion as an Australian kitchen essential.

Next up we chatted to Massimo Mele about the ferretti pasta shape - how it's made, and what to serve it with. We also spoke about next week's Melbourne Tomato Festival which will be an awesome event in its new location this year.

We finished the show with The Hidden Souk's Adrian Kennedy, who spoke about the history and importance of cumin, and the area of Morocco that they source it from.

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.
