Radio Chat – Too many zucchinis (and a bit about child obesity)

I love dropping into ABC Radio Melbourne to chat about what I've been eating, cooking and learning. This time, I came in to talk about gluts, those times when you just have too much of something and need to deal with it QUICK. But host Richelle Hunt had been talking about a new program to try to help teens with obesity and the topic kind of took over the show, so we chatted about that too. It's a fraught issue and there are no easy answers.

Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year (or Chinese New Year) is one of the world's great annual celebrations. How big? Well, in China people are expected to take around three billion journeys as they travel to join family for festivities. The shebang begins on Thursday February 15, with the Year of the Dog starting the following day, and celebrations continuing for 23 days. Special 'lucky' foods are eaten during this period, sometimes because of their colour (red is lucky) and often because their name is a homonym for words such as 'luck', 'prosperity', 'wealth'.
