Listen to Eat It - 5 November 201747:495 November 2017

On today's show we started by talking about the humble potato latke... or rosti, or whatever the hell you call it. How does such a simple potato dish manage to taste so awesome?

Speaking of awesome, the team behind Tivoli Road Bakery have released a new book and it is, uhhh... awesome. Michael and Pippa James joined us in the studio to talk about their journey from cheffing to baking, the differences between "traditional" baking and industralised baking, and why supermarket flours ain't that great for your sourdough starter.

Lastly the co-editor of the Good Food Guide Roslyn Grundy dropped in to talk about the recent launch of the 2018 edition, the first time the guide had been truly national. We spoke about some of this year's trends as well as a few of Roslyn's favourite places to eat.

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.
