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.

We started today's show speaking about Matt's recently discovered Lentil Shepherd's Pie recipe, with its magic secret ingredient: soy sauce. We love having Joost Bakker on the show and today he discussed his next project called FutureCave. He's working to transform an old Service Station site into a house that can grow enough food to sustain its residents. Once the place is approved, it will be the subject of an upcoming MadMan documentary series. Good friend of Triple R Caterina Borsato...

It's a stormy weekend in Melbourne, and we started the show by acknowledging the awesome postal survey result this week... hooray for the "yes" vote, and bravo to progressive Melbourne! Anyway back to food, and we spoke to Andrew Kavasalis about the recent law change allowing the production and sale of low-THC hemp for consumption in Australia. We're lagging the world in this, however hemp seed is a very nutritious food that is easy to grow, and vegan-friendly. It tastes a little like...

On a cracking Melbourne afternoon we spoke to Mitchell Horrocks about his time and work in Uganda. He first travelled to Africa in high school, and since then learned about their disease problems due to unclean drinking water. But every problem is a solution waiting to happen, so Mitchell has designed an apparatus that can sit on an existing cooking setup and purify water at the same time. Have a look at his crowd-sourcing page here. Heston Blumenthal is one of the most influential chefs...

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...

Spring! It is here! (kinda)... soooooo we had a chat to Jo Toscano about what produce is starting to come on-stream (rhubarb, artichokes, and even mangoes), and what's expected in the next few weeks (asparagus, morels, stonefruit). Now that you've stocked up with in-season ingredients what should you do with them? The duo behind Pope Joan Matt Wilkinson and Sharlee Gibb have just released their new book Mr & Mrs Wilkinson's How It Is At Home, and there are some great ingredient-focussed...

On today's show we started with Matt's top tips for an excellent mushroom risotto, lifted from a Giorgio Locatelli: add some soaked dried porcini in with the rice, use carnaroli rice if you can find it, and lightly fry fresh mushrooms in a separate pan before adding them with the butter and parmesan at the end. We caught up with our good market buddy John to see how his surgery recovery is going; the good news is that he hopes to be back on the market stall by Christmas. We also had a...

We also previewed an Oz Harvest event tomorrow at Melbourne Uni called Think, Eat, and Save. But we didn't speak for too long as he has to prepare lunch for Ben Shewry and family!

As we make our way through the depths of a chilly Melbourne winter we chatted about how to make the perfect roast potato; our top tips are to choose the correct spud (look for a sebago or dutch cream, ideally just brushed so you still have to clean them) and add half a teaspoon of bi-carb soda when you're par-boiling them. Yum! Truffle Melbourne's Nigel Woods joined us in the studio to talk about Australia's burgeoning industry, which is now the fourth largest truffle producing country in...

On a gorgeous Melbourne winter's day we started the show talking to the Good Food Guide's Roslyn Grundy. There are huge changes happening to the Guide this year, as the Melbourne and Sydney editions are combined to form a national tome that also covers Australia's other cities. It's going to be huge - roughly twice the size of the current guide - and is due out in October. Next up we were joined by the awesome team behind Fitzroy's Smith & Daughters, Shannon Martinez and Mo Wyse. It's not...
