Listen to Eat It - 22 April 201849:1622 April 2018

On today's show we spoke about the possible future of hospitality with the City of Melbourne's Dr Renae Beale, who along with Cake Industries is holding an event called Singularity to explore the possible role of artificial intelligence and robotics in the food service industry.

We also spoke to restauranteur Joseph Vargetto about his life in Melbourne's kitchens, how to stay relevant in today's restaurant scene, and what ingredients he's using this Autumn.

To finish the show we chatted to our winemaking buddy Duncan Buchanan about the few remaining grapes on the vine, and the possible effects of climate change on the industry.

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.
