On today's show we spoke to the redoubtable Guy Grossi, chef and owner of Melbourne's iconic Florentino restaurant. He's just released an excellent new book focussed on his downstairs venue Cellar Bar, and we chatted about the daily rhythms of running a busy eatery and the traditions of Italian cuisine.

In three decades of radio we've never actually discussed one of the fundamentals of dining: the plate! Sam Gordon from Melbourne ceramic company Robert Gordon joined us in the studio to talk about the various elements of plate creation and design, and how a restaurant will source the right ceramics for their overall fitout.

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.
