As we make our way through the depths of a chilly Melbourne winter we chatted about how to make the perfect roast potato; our top tips are to choose the correct spud (look for a sebago or dutch cream, ideally just brushed so you still have to clean them) and add half a teaspoon of bi-carb soda when you're par-boiling them.

Truffle Melbourne's Nigel Woods joined us in the studio to talk about Australia's burgeoning industry, which is now the fourth largest truffle producing country in the world. We chatted about the differences growing truffles in Australia vs Europe, why to avoid truffle oil, and where to buy the elusive fungus here in Melbourne.
