On today's show we celebrated the re-opening of St Kilda's Esplanade Hotel, which is one of the finest hotel makeovers since Donleavy Fitzpatrick restored The George to its former glory. It's awesome to see people back at the Espy! Burch & Purchese's Darren Purchese joined us to talk about his new book Chef's Host Christmas Too, and we talked about the traditional vs Australian Christmas cuisine. Lastly food writer Michael Harden ran us through some of the more recent restaurants worthy of your attention, as well as some of his old favourites.

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.
