On today's show we spoke to Tammi Jonas about the ongoing campaign to allow small-scale animal farmers to have their farming methods permitted under the law. Currently these style of farms are considered "intensive agriculture" which are not permitted in certain areas. Have a look at the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance website for more info.
Dorelle Havilland joined us next to chat about her restaurant The Moldy Fig. We spoke about her travels around New Orleans, the differences between Creole and Cajun cuisine, and how she's re-creating these food styles here on Lygon St.
Our good buddy Hannah Dupree also popped into the studio, to explore a rather interesting pairing: tea and cheese. Hannah has run Storm in a Teacup for years, and on this occasion we tried matching two styles of tea to specific styles of cheese. And guess what? It's valid!
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.
