Radio Chat – I Chat ‘Death of the Dinner Party’ on 3RRR’s Eat It

I dropped into 3RRR's weekly Eat It show to talk about dinner parties - if we have them, how do we do them, and if we don't, what's stopping us? This is a pretty big topic that I'm diving into with great interest. We also preview my new Signature Dish Series, exclusive behind-the-scenes events in top restaurants.

Radio Chat – Desk Lunch, Work Lunch and Crumpets for Elevenses

Every couple of weeks, I drop into ABC Radio Melbourne to chat about what I've been eating, cooking and learning. This time, host Richelle Hunt and I chatted about lunch - how important is it to take the time to get away from your work station to eat, move, and communicate face-to-face. It's not possible for everyone, but I think it's great if you can carve out the time for a proper lunch break.

Radio Chat – Relishgate – Could Feta Be Better? – Safely Fermenting At Home

Every couple of weeks, I drop into ABC Radio Melbourne to chat about what I've been eating, cooking and learning. This time, host Richelle Hunt and I chatted about food safety, including the relish that was recently named food poisoning culprit at a swanky lunch. We also heard from a food safety expert about fermenting at home, and I gave a rundown on the EU's requests that Australian producers use different names for products including feta. Can you think of an alternative name for this popular cheese?

Lello Pasta Bar

Eating pasta is my favourite pastime but simply eating it means not gleaning every morsel of joy from the experience. Knowing the backstory enriches a meal, like an egg yolk spilling from raviolo. Lello, a smart city restaurant specialising in housemade pasta, delivers tagliatelle tales and fettuccine fables, elevating delicious pasta into culinary storytime.
