On today's show we went on the road to a town called Lindenow, and caught up with Stuart Greig about the East Gippsland Vegetable Innovation Day, bringing together an enormous number of seeds and vegetable varietals in one of Australia's best growing regions.
As the weather gets colder it's a good time to think about how to make the best use of the remaining Summer and Autumn produce, and we replayed an interview from last year with broadcaster and farmer Matthew Evans. His book Not Just Jam focusses on how best to make preserves, and we spoke about some of his tips to get the best results.
We finished the show with an extended chat with UK food writer and Masterchef judge Jay Rayner. We spoke about his books including the recent release The Ten Food Commandments, as well as his journey into food journalism and what keeps him interested in the industry.
