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?
Favourite Ferments and Preserve Recipes
I love fermenting and preserving at home. Here are some of my favourite recipes:
- Kimchi, the Korean cabbage condiment that adds a funky kick to everything!
- Amazake, the koji-fermented sweet rice that is delicious with stewed fruit.
- Tomato and Fennel Chutney, a great way to store summery goodness in a jar all year
