On today's show we spoke to Joost Bakker about the very sad passing of chef Jeremy Strode, and the impact he had on the industry. We also previewed an Oz Harvest event tomorrow at Melbourne Uni called Think, Eat, and Save. But we didn't speak for too long as he has to prepare lunch for Ben Shewry and family!
Next up Citizen Cacao's Georgie Castle and All Are Welcome's Boris Portney popped in to talk about their upcoming Sunday stints at Fitzroy's Grub, as well as their respective journeys through the food industry.
To finish we had a drink... but not just any drink, as Moet & Hennessy brand ambassador Mick Formosa brought a bottle of Glenmorangie Signet whisky from his recent travels around Scotland and beyond.
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.
