Do celebrity chefs care about more than just tasty recipes? It looks like they do, with a fellowship of UK chefs getting together recently to promote sustainable seafood in the BBC’s “Fish Fight” program. Tooni Mahto, marine biologist and BBC personality, comes in to talk about her involvement with Jamie Oliver’s part of the project. Don’t miss it!

And Dave will review Jessica Watson's book True Spirit - the Aussie girl who took on the world -  the girl who was so inspired hearing Jesse Martin's story when she was 11 that she set sail to circumnavigate the world herself when she was 16. Should she have been allowed to sail at such a young age? Does it matter that she made a technical error with the route?

Plus news including recent sightings of blue groper in Port Phillip Bay and calls for increased conservation, Brett’s dive report, and drama at the Prom.


Bron Burton, John Ford, Dave Speller and the RM tTeam

On today's show we talked about some recent comments from Nestlé Chairman Peter Brabeck-Letmathe about the USA's biofuel policy. We also discussed wholesale market food prices with Freshstate CEO John Roach, and despite what you may be hearing in the media the post-flood situation isn't catastrophic for consumers. If you're looking for a bargain, the current picks are avocados and apples.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is about to start, and we spoke to food-dude Danny McGinlay about his show this year.... plus his new must-eat food trend, the meat-za! We were also joined by Elbowskin who provided some live musicomedy.

Finally we spoke to coffee guru Justin Metcalf about the recent rise in coffee prices, and also the phenomenon of the single-serve coffee capsules used by Nespresso and others. Idiot-proof quality espresso, or waste-generating 2nd rate coffee? Well... kinda both!
