On a gorgeous Melbourne winter's day we started the show talking to the Good Food Guide's Roslyn Grundy. There are huge changes happening to the Guide this year, as the Melbourne and Sydney editions are combined to form a national tome that also covers Australia's other cities. It's going to be huge - roughly twice the size of the current guide - and is due out in October.
Next up we were joined by the awesome team behind Fitzroy's Smith & Daughters, Shannon Martinez and Mo Wyse. It's not a "big thing" to be Vegan anymore, and we chatted about what to put on a vegetable-based plate during winter.
Lastly we were re-joined by a Triple R favourite Justin "Digger" Calverley who has just released his first book called The Urban Farmer. And guess what? It's a crackerjack book, based on his long-running urban farming course from Ceres Environmental Park.
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.
