On today's show we talked about a few events happening around town, including the upcoming Sweet Set at Grub Fitzroy.
For fifteen years Pure South has been celebrating the food and produce from Tasmania, and we spoke to chef and director Phillip Kennedy about how the restaurant came about. We also chatted about how Tasmania has matured in the time the restaurant has been open, and how it's no longer just the "Apple Isle". We also chatted about their upcoming Vin Diemen wine event on August 12.
To finish the show we were joined by Mr Ottorino chef and owner Matthew Tine about his family's background in the restaurant industry, his own journey as a chef, and his approach to traditional Italian cuisine.
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.
