On today's show we noted the sudden passing of journalist and food critic AA Gill, who wrote for the Sunday Times in the UK and also for Australian Gourmet Traveller. The man could write! Vale.
Next up we had a quick market report from John at the Queen Vic Market.
We were thrilled to be joined by one of Melbourne's iconic chefs, Jacques Reymond. We spoke about growing up in Burgundy, Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere, and how his Christmases have evolved since arriving in Australia.
We finished the show with The Humble Tumbler's Clare Burder who brought in a bottle of her amazing The Assembly sparkling wine. Made with fruit from the highest vineyard in Victoria, we spoke about making sparking "the hard way". We also chatted about her Christmas rituals and what to avoid to make it through the day (exhibit A: sparkling shiraz)
