In which I do another Christmas episode, asking a variety of people what they like (or dislike) about Christmas food. I hope you enjoy the variety of reactions!
(Karlee on making gingerbread houses.)
In which I reminisce about food I had in Germany and Austria, and Renate talks about the food she makes in her German home.
I think this is the soup that Renate mentions: Griessnockerl (Austrian recipe, but hopefully similar to the German version)
Frikadellen (German meat patties)
Kaiserschmarrn (torn pancakes)
Germknodel (steamed dumplings)
In which I discuss exciting new things in my breakfast world (weird, right?) and two new cookbooks I’ve received to review, and Richard talks about Mount Zero Olives.
Thai Food Made Easy (with a link to Indian Made Easy too)
Apple fridge oats (not the exact recipe I used but I can’t find that…)
In which I talk to the wonderful Sam, who runs and manages and does all sorts of interesting things with the Tasmanian business Art of Tea, and she talks about buying the business, the new(ish) Bouteaque… and nudi-tea…
Also, a little sneak peak, if you listen closely, about a project I’ve got lined up for next year…
In which I talk to Jacqui, who teaches adolescents about food and cooking and has only experienced one fire in the classroom.
She mentions the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating, which is a different format from the Healthy Eating Pyramid that I grew up with, with some different information too.
In which I talk to the wonderful Lisa Hannett about Vikings: their sagas (farmers come to blows), their food, their rubbish heaps, and modern attempts at recreating such experiences…
